Sloppy Buffalo Joes and Mashed Potato Skins | www.tasteandtellblog.com

I think that sloppy joes are one of those foods that (most) everyone loves, but few are willing to admit it. Maybe it’s because they are far from sophisticated or gourmet. Good thing I’m not really sophisticated or gourmet, because I’ll gladly admit that I love sloppy joes!

Another thing I love are buffalo wings. So when I saw this recipe that combines sloppy joes and buffalo wings, I knew I had to try it. This isn’t the first time I’ve tried a twist on the sloppy joe – and they all come from the woman we all either love or hate – Rachael Ray. And I have to say, this one is another winner!! And to go along side the joes are a twist on potato skins – but a little healthier. Both were delicious and made for a wonderful weeknight dinner.

Next time you are looking for something to please both kids and adults alike, give these a try!

    These look yummy! I’m sooo not gourmet (as you know!!) but really, I’m not a big fan of sloppy joes. So maybe if I try a different take on sloppy joes I’ll admit to liking them! If I ever call you asking what I should make for dinner–remind me of these 🙂
