Sloppy Joes! I was always a huge Manwich fan growing up and could easily put away 3 or 4 of these bad boys at dinner. Now that I’m keto, I wanted to find a way to get all that tasty goodness in a low-carb recipe. It took a little back and forth to get the recipe right but I think you will be happy with the final result.
The key for me was the bread. I didn’t just want a pile of Sloppy Joes on a plate. Don’t get me wrong, I would have eaten that but sometimes you just want to pick up a sandwich and chomp down. After trying a few things that just didn’t have the “firmness” you really need for a Sloppy Joe, I modified a recipe for a breakfast muffin I used in the 7 Low Carb Breakfast Recipe ebook. (On sale now!) This turned out great and made it so I could actually pick it up and eat it like a regular slider.
It should also be noted that I used the ramekins because that’s what I had. I could just as easily have but the mix in a bowl and then cut it in half after cooking it and made a big sandwich out of it. Think like something from Schlotzsky’s if that’s even a thing where you live. Also, I didn’t think about it until after I ate it but the sandwiches could have used a few dill pickle slices. I didn’t use any vinegar in the sauce recipe so a little bit of tang would have been good.
Once you make this recipe, let me know! Tag @MySugarFreeJrny on Instagram and I will see it. Thanks! Don’t forget that you can see all my recipes here as well.
