sloppy joes and oven-baked potato wedges (the perfect comfort food)

i woke up in the middle of the night last night with an unbearable pain at the back of my throat. and it's all too familiar - my guess is that it's strep throat. i'll be finding out tomorrow for sure, since i finally made an appointment to see a doctor. for most of the day i could barely speak. however, as the day went on the pain calmed, so i decided to treat myself and family to my most favorite comfort food - sloppy joes.

sloppy joes:
-1 white onion, chopped.
-1 packet mccornick sloppy joe seasoning.
-1 can tomato soup.
-1 lb. ground beef.
-2 tablespoons (or so) of yellow mustard.
-cheese (if desired)

potato wedges:
-russet potatos
-salt and pepper to taste
-olive oil

preheat your oven to 425*f.
boil potatoes for 15 minutes.
drain, and let cool.
cut potatoes.
toss with light olive oil, salt, and pepper.
place on non-stick cookie sheet and bake for 35 minutes.

while the fries are baking, you can start cooking your ground beef.
once cooked, add white onion and brown.
once the white onion is translucent and beef is browned, stir in tomato soup and mustard.
lastly, add your sloppy joe seasoning, mix well, simmer for 5-10 minutes, and serve with potato wedges.

perfect! :)


  1. Adding garlic, rosemary, thyme and parmesan to your potato wedges makes them super yummy!

    Keep on cookin! (:

  2. yes! i usually add garlic and cayenne red pepper - however my parents like them plain.

    and i shall! :)

  3. When are you going to put up a tutorial on the DIY plate wall art? I've been waiting forever to know how its done!

  4. oh my, i can do that for you next week!

  5. Gross! read the back of that tomato soup and the seasoning. Probably loaded with sodium and additives. Hmmm...the only thing it inspired is my thinking of how it can be made using healthier products (maybe Annie's tomato soup and a self-made concoction of seasoning)...

  6. this is an easy comfort food of mine, that i love. it's not like you have to eat it, make whatever you want and please keep negative comments off of my blog.

  7. Love the food! You’re an amazing. This menu is fantastic:) It sure will help everyone who’s looking for a perfect menu like this. Thank you for sharing this recipe.

  8. thank you, and of course! i've made sloppy joes from scratch, but they're just not the same! these are delicious. :)
