Sweet and Tangy Sloppy Joes

I am a big sloppy joes fanatic! They are so yummy so I was extremely excited to find this recipe at Masonfit.com. With some slight modifications, it is approved for the Medifast or Optavia plan! Check out his site for some delicious healthy recipes! 


I love the sweet and tangy flavors in this recipe! The sweetness comes from Walden Farms pancake syrup which is a great replacement for honey or maple syrup while you are trying to watch your waistline. The tang is from the yellow mustard and apple cider vinegar. If you are a fan of Carolina mustard bbq sauce, you need to try this recipe. I admit, at first I was skeptical about the flavor combination, but it was delicious!


I started off browning the ground beef in a skillet. Then added the sauce and stirred until combined. Heated on low for 4 to 5 min or until heated thoroughly.


They are wonderful as lettuce wraps!


But not without adding cheese first! Cheese on everything! Or eat it straight from a bowl! Topped with cheese of course!
