Sloppy Joe Baked Potatoes

Easy and grain-free, these Sloppy Joe Baked Potatoes are a delicious twist on an American favorite dinner. 

Grain-Free Sloppy Joe Baked Potatoes from Without Grain by Hayley Ryczek | RaiasRecipes.comEven though Sloppy Joes have been considered an ‘American favorite,’ since their beginning in the 30’s, I have to confess that when I was growing up they were pretty far down on my list of “favorite foods.”

I was one of those kids who hated the different foods on their plate touching, preferring my plate clean and my fingers unstained. Sloppy Joes were a kind of enigma to me. Why would anyone want to eat food that was falling out all over the place?

And on top of my aversion to messy plates, the Sloppy Joes I was introduced to at potlucks and friends’ houses were from cans and therefore pretty undesirable to a little girl spoiled by her mom’s homemade, from-scratch cooking. Because, of course, homemade anything is 100x better than a processed, store-bought version!

A few weeks ago, Hayley from Health Starts In the Kitchen, sent me a copy of her freshly hardbound cookbook, Without Grain. When I saw the Baked Potato Sloppy Joe recipe I was excited to try it out on my family! The filling looked delicious and easy to mix up, and I was sure that I would much prefer eating my Sloppy Joes on baked potatoes, rather than on a bun that refuses to contain its filling.

My excitement was not unfounded. The Baked Potato Sloppy Joes were exactly what I’d predicted: easy, delicious, and definitely not as messy as on a bun. 😉 Of course, there’s always a rebel in every family, and my husband picked up his baked potato and ate it like a sandwich, insides spilling out all over
