Versatility in my recipes are the key to keeping my family interested. So try these handy tips:

  • Spice it up: Try putting a little hot sauce and some jalapeno peppers into the wimpie for a spicy twist.
  • This Recipe Can be Doubled: This is a great recipe for a crowd. Simply increase the ingredients proportionately and you can freeze half or serve to the team, church group or family reunion.
  • Sneak in other Vegetables: If you have a hard time getting your kids to eat their veggies, try sneaking in some finely chopped vegetables to your sloppy joes. They will never know!
  • Serve Over Rice: If you are gluten free, serve over rice, rice cauliflower or even mashed potatoes to make a hearty meal.
