Recipe For Sloppy Joe French Fry Bake


I have one last Sloppy Joe recipe for you this month and then I will give it a rest. I don’t know what it is about cold weather and football that screams for this kind of food, but there have been no complaints from the peanut gallery

When I was in high school, I fell in love with chili cheese fries. Obviously this was long before any healthy lunch initiatives. When I bought lunch, it was either those fries or a maple cinnamon roll made fresh in the cafeteria. My metabolism was healthy and I could eat anything that tasted good! The entire school agreed with me, as those two items were the most popular amongst the entire student body.

Nowadays, I have to be a lot more careful about the fried foods and cinnamon rolls are completely out of the question. That doesn’t mean I cannot enjoy a variation on those chili fries once in a while, though. Using frozen French fries and an oven, I have come up with a great substitution. This Sloppy Joe French Fry Bake is just such a variation. Oh boy! Was this ever good; pure comfort food at its best.
