Baked-in-Buns Sloppy Joes
Why I Love This Recipe
Ingredients You'll Need
2 pounds lean ground beef
3/4 cup chopped green bell pepper
1 1/2 tablespoons onion powder
2 teaspoons garlic powder
2 (16-ounce) cans Manwich Sloppy Joe sauce
8 low-calorie hamburger buns, cut in half
Spray large nonstick skillet with cooking spray; add ground beef, bell pepper, onion powder and garlic powder and cook, stirring, over medium heat until beef is cooked through.
Add sauce; cook, stirring frequently, until meat mixture is heated through.
Scoop out centers of tops and bottoms of hamburger buns. Divide sloppy Joe mixture among bun bottoms; replace tops.
Wrap individual sandwiches in heavy-duty foil.
Preheat oven to 350F. Bake sandwiches 15 to 20 minutes.
Sandwiches can be wrapped and stored in freezer bags before baking; bake directly from freezer at 350F for 30 to 40 minutes.
Tips: Complete your Baked-in-Buns Sloppy Joe meal with frozen corn on the cob (microwaved in minutes) and chunky-style applesauce.
