"Here you go, enjoy your dinner (this was before I called dinner supper)!"
"Oh, these are Maid-Rights."
I replied, "Loose what???"
I had never heard of Maid-Rights or Loose Meat. I knew these tasty sandwiches as Sloppy Joes. Oh wait, I had heard of Loose Meats...back when Roseanne was a popular TV show, she had a restaurant that served Loose Meat. That was before Google and the ability to have information at your fingertips in seconds flat. I don't know what I thought Loose Meat was, but I never imagined it to be a Sloppy Joe!
Jeff has come to love my Sloppy Joes. As I said earlier, they are quick, easy and good. We usually have Tator Tots and corn...if I start the Tots cooking, by the time they are done, the Sloppy Joes are done, too. Enjoy~
1 lb. hamburger (I use 96%)
1/2 medium onion, finely chopped (or 1/2 t. onion powder)
2 cloves of garlic, pressed (or 1/4 t. garlic powder)
2 t. Worcestershire Sauce
1/4 c. relish
3/4 c. ketchup
Brown the hamburger with the onion and garlic (or onion and garlic powder, if using) until the meat is done. Add the Worcestershire Sauce, relish and ketchup. Stir well to combine. Turn to low and simmer for 10 minutes. Serve on a toasted hamburger bun or English muffin. Top with cheese if desired.
Review: I usually use English muffins instead of hamburger buns (because that's what we usually have on hand!) and I top it with a slice of cheese. You can add more/less ketchup to taste. More ketchup makes for a sloppier joe, but will increase the number of sandwiches you can make. Sometimes I serve this without any type of bread, just a scoop on a plate. Jeff enjoys corn mixed into his Sloppy Joes. He's an Iowa boy at heart and loves the meat and corn mixture...toss in some potatoes (tots!) and he's in 7th heaven! Enjoy~
