Sloppy Joe, Making it Healthier!

With all of the travel and fun we will be having this spring and summer Bringing Back Dinner is going to make a few changes.  We are trying to be a little healthier and will be trying dishes that have been made healthier, but still full of flavor and there will only be 2 recipes each week, one of which will be a Meatless Monday dish which will help with our goal towards healthier eating.  There will still be a full list of recipes available on the links page to help you plan a week’s worth of meals, or just grab one and go.  I hope you enjoy the leaner version of Bringing Back Dinner.

PS: Even though it is good to eat healthier as a lifestyle there are still moments in our lives where we may treat ourselves or indulge, Bringing Back Dinner is no exception and will post a few indulgences from time to time.

Meatless Monday: Black Bean Quesadillas – Eating Well Magazine

Time:   15 Minutes

Ease: simple

Review: I know, I know, you have seen this before!  I can’t tell you how simple and tasty this dish is.  We love it!  This recipe calls for only 1/2 cup of pepper jack cheese,  but don’t let that concern you.  This dish still feels very cheesy and if you don’t announce it, no one will know the difference.

Sloppy Joes – Ellie Krieger

Time: 30 Minutes

Ease: Simple

Review: My family loves Sloppy Joes, but I hate the idea of using the packets or cans which are loaded with salt and preservatives.  I found this recipe by Ellie Krieger and will never go back.  It is full of flavor, tastes like a Sloppy Joe and is healthier.

Bonus Dish:

Emeril’s Sausage Meatballs and Red Gravy

My husband requested this for his birthday!  It takes patience and several hours, but is well worth it.  This was our indulgence this week!
