Grandma’s Sloppy Joes (Only Healthier!)

Grandma's Sloppy Joes

Growing up, one of my favorite meals was always my Grandmother’s BBQ Sandwiches. Her name was Joan (Jo) and so we couldn’t call them Sloppy Joes – that would be insinuating she was sloppy, afterall! And recently, I’ve started making them for my daughter – who loves them! But more importantly, the neighbor kids adore them too! I recently helped whip up a batch for my neighbor to take to Boy Scout camp and they were a HUGE hit there too! (Grandma would be proud!) 

But now that I’m trying to do this whole healthy eating thing? We figured one small serving (including the bun) was about 300 calories – and I could seriously eat several of them at that size! Plus the baked beans, potato chips and potato salad you just HAVE to have on the side! So I decided to try and healthify the recipe. What I got was delicious! (A bit different than the original, but still delicious!)

I am one of those people who doesn’t care for ground turkey, so I wanted to keep the beef. But this recipe was too good NOT to share!
