Sloppy Josephs

The classic sloppy Joe sandwich grows up – with bacon, avocado and a fried egg. Inspired by damndelicious

Ingredients

1
tablespoon bacon fat or olive oil
1
small yellow onion, diced
1 1/2
pounds ground beef chuck
1 1/2
cups organic ketchup
1/4
cup water
1/2
tablespoon white vinegar
2
tablespoons sugar
3/4
tablespoon yellow mustard
1/2
teaspoon kosher salt
1/8
teaspoon coarse ground black pepper
1/8
teaspoon paprika
6
sturdy hamburger buns or rolls
6
slices applewood bacon, cooked
1
avocado, sliced
6
fried eggs

Directions

  • 1 Heat a Dutch oven over medium heat with a tablespoon of bacon fat or olive oil.
  • 2 Saute the diced onion for 5 to 8 minutes until soft and translucent.
  • 3 Add in the ground beef, use a wooden spoon to break up the meat and cook for another 5-8 minutes or until browned and fully cooked.
  • 4 Meanwhile in a bowl, combine the ketchup, water, vinegar, sugar, mustard, salt, pepper and paprika. Whisk until blended and smooth.
  • 5 Once the ground beef is fully cooked, drain off the fat with a spoon and then pour in the ketchup mixture. Stir and bring the sauce to a simmer, reduce to low, cover and cook for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • 6 Build the sandwich by scooping out about a 1/2 cup of sloppy joe filling and place it onto the toasted bun. Top with a slice of bacon that has been cut in half, a few slices of avocado and a fried egg.

Step By Step  

This twist on sloppy Joe sandwiches will change your mind forever about the classic version!

As prepared by Simply Scratch,

This beefed-up sloppy Joe sandwich – with bacon, avocado and a beautiful fried egg on top – puts the regular version on the back burner.

Who doesn't love a messy sloppy Joe? It's an all-American sandwich that you can whip up in 30 minutes flat.

But today we're stepping it up a notch by topping it with crispy bacon, slices of creamy avocado and finishing it off with a fried egg on top. Grown up sloppy Joe sandwiches ... Sloppy Josephs!

  

Sloppy Josephs

My sloppy Joe filling is a recipe I grew up on. It calls for the most basic of pantry ingredients and takes little to no time at all. I always have frozen ground beef in the freezer and the rest of the ingredients in the pantry for those nights when I don't feel like cooking.

 

Sloppy Josephs

Start by heating a Dutch oven with a little bit of bacon fat or olive oil over medium heat.

Throw in one small yellow onion that has been chopped. Cook until the onions are soft and translucent.

Add a pound and a half of ground beef. I use ground chuck, but any ground beef will do.

Cook until browned, and then use a spoon and remove all of the fat to a bowl (discard once it has cooled).

Meanwhile, in a small bowl add the ketchup, water, sugar, mustard, salt, pepper and paprika.

Whisk until the sauce is combined and smooth.

Pour the ketchup mixture into the pot with the browned ground beef.

Bring the meat filling to a simmer, reduce to low, cover and let it cook for 20 minutes. Stir occasionally.

While the filling is doing its thing, it's a good time to fry up your eggs, slice up an avocado and cook your bacon.

Build this iconic sandwich by toasting up the sandwich buns. (Be sure to buy a sturdy roll so the filling won't make the bottom bun soggy!)

Top the sloppy Joe filling with two slices of applewood smoked bacon, slices of fresh avocado and a fried egg.

Enjoy!
