I can’t remember if I’ve had a Sloppy Joe since I was a kid and definitely not in the 26 years I’ve been married to Bev as she doesn’t care for them. But when I saw Katherine’s recipe for Death By Sloppy Joe over at Smoky Mountain Café, I knew I’d waited long enough. When I mentioned them to Bev, she said she’d rather have a plain ole hamburger (she needs a regular burger fix) so I decided on both and made just a half recipe of the Sloppy Joe’s.
Since I followed Katherine’s recipe as written, you can just visit her site to have a look.
I have also been trying to work Jo Jo Potatoes into a meal since they were posted by Jenn from Jenn’s Food Journey. Again, Bev followed the recipe as written, so just stop by her place for a look. This is my plate of a Sloppy Joe and taters - I probably should have added a piece of lettuce to make it health food, but I did add a slice of smoked Gouda.
We all thought the potatoes were very good as well and will definitely make them again. Bev decided to make a double recipe so I'd have plenty of leftovers but there were only 5 wedges left - but lots of coating remains.
Both the Sloppy Joes and the potatoes had some nice heat to them and my mouth was a little warm by meals end. This was definitely an excellent meal and I thank Katherine and Jenn for posting the recipes. My shots don't come close to doing justice to how good it was.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by Almost Heaven South.
