Sloppy Joe bake
- Preparation and cooking time
- Serves 4
If you fancy a change from chilli and bolognese, try this new way with mince, topped with crispy garlic bread
- STEP 1
Brown the mince in a non-stick pan for a few mins, then tip into a bowl. Whizz the onions in a food processor until finely chopped (or roughly grate if you don’t have one). Tip into the pan with the oil, then cook for 2-3 mins until soft. Add the spices, cook for 1 min. Return the mince to the pan with the tomatoes and stock, then bring to a boil. Simmer for 20 mins.
- STEP 2
Heat oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6 and spoon the mince into an ovenproof dish. Arrange the baguette slices over the mince, then bake for 12 mins until the bread is crisp on top.
ALL-AMERICAN SLOPPY JOES
Cook the mince and onion as before, then mix in 4 tbsp barbecue sauce instead of the spices. Add a 400g can kidney beans, drained, with the tomatoes and stock, then simmer as recipe, left. Serve spooned over 4 halved burger buns, scattered with a little grated cheddar, if you like.
