Usually I ate sloppy Joe in South Africa at a restaurant called Mugg ‘n Bean – it was served on a croissant with a fried egg on top and I loved it and knew I needed to find the best way to make it low. -carbohydrates. It may seem impossible trying to substitute something like a delicious croissant with butter, but when it comes to our body and health, it's 100% worth it.
We decided to put our sloppy Joe in some sweet potato and top it with a sunny fried egg. It's colorful, delicious, and will keep you full until lunch.
This Sloppy Joe Sweet Potato breakfast takes longer than the average breakfast recipe, but the good news is, you can make it the night before if you want. Sloppy Joe warms up well and you can have the sweet potato boiled, ready to be seared in butter the next morning. Or if it is the weekend you can do everything that same morning, it all depends on you.
Use only 9 ingredients that you probably already have on hand and take approximately 30 minutes of hands-on time. Not too bad at all!
Cody and I will be leaving on Friday for a weekend camping trip about 90 minutes from where we live, and I'm so excited for that! I have not been camping since I was a child and have always wanted to go again. So when I mentioned that to Cody, we decided to go ahead and do it! Why not?
We are going to take a couple of movies and books in case the weather decides badly, if not, we hope to swim in the nearby river, hike, canoe and do all the other little things it has to offer! Hurrah ????! Right now, we are putting together a shopping list and doing a little planning. Chances are we'll make a take-out soup with us, like our chicken taco soup or maybe even our vegetable soup. Yeeeeee! Friday can't come soon enough!
