Looking for a delicious and quick dinner recipe? How about home-cooked sloppy joes (for us known as the "Momwich") without the taste of can and without preservatives? I'm about to make it right now! I cooked this same recipe for dinner last Friday, and it was so yummy that we are craving it again! I have done sloppy joes before with regular pasta tomato sauce, but it resembled my spaghetti sauce too much...So, last Friday I decided to replace the tomato sauce with a can of petite diced tomatoes and instead of hamburger buns, we had french rolls. Wow, what a difference it made! Even my picky eater boys enjoyed! Here's the recipe (Have to be quick! Got my own to prepare... :D)

Serves about 4 people (allowing for seconds) - Total time to prepare and cook: About 30 minutes

1 lb. lean ground beef
1 green pepper (chopped)
14.5 oz can of petite diced tomatoes
2 tbs canola oil
1 1/2 tsp meat seasoning (I like Chef Paul Prudhomme's Meat Magic)
1 pinch of salt
4-6 french rolls

  • Warm the canola oil in a large skillet at medium heat for a few minutes (2-3 minutes). Add meat and sprinkle the salt and seasoning on top. Add the green pepper and cook the meat with the pepper until meat is brown and pepper is tender. Drain the fat.
  • Add the diced tomatoes, stir, reduce heat and simmer uncovered for about 6-8 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Preheat oven to 350F and place french rolls inside the oven for 2-3 minutes.
  • Spoon the "Momwich" into the french rolls.
  • Enjoy it!
  • Easy prep and easy cleaning too! We all love that!
