Sloppy Joes and Sweet Potato Fries

This was a yummy combination:

Sloppy Joes
recipe from my Grandma W. 
  • 2 lbs ground beef or turkey
  • 1 onion chopped fine
  • 2 Tbsp flour
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 12 oz tomato juice
  • 1 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 Tbsp mustard
  • 2 Tbsp brown sugar
Brown beef and onion, drain grease. Add flour and stir thoroughly. Add remaining ingredients and simmer 1 hour, stirring frequently. ( After I added the flour to the beef, I just through it all in my slow cooker and let cook on low for about 3 hours).

Sweet Potato Fries
  • 2 medium sweet potatoes peeled
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt and pepper

Preheat oven to 425.  Cut sweet potatoes in wedges or like french fries. Place wedges on large baking pan or cookie sheet. Pour over olive oil, and toss to mix. Now sprinkle over brown sugar, salt, and black pepper. Toss to coat wedges. Spread out in a single layer. Place pan in oven and bake for 15 minutes, then take out and turn wedges over. Place back in oven and bake another 15-20 minutes, or until golden brown and crispy on the outside. Sprinke with extra kosher salt to taste. The cooking time will depend on how big the wedges are. Enjoy! Note: These are also good with a little ground cumin sprinkled with the other seasonings. Have fun and experiment!
