CAN YOU PUT CHEESE ON NEAT SLOPPY JOES?
Oh my yes!! I would put a slice of American cheese on the bottom of the hamburger buns, and spoon the hot mixture on top to melt the cheese!
CAN YOU FREEZE NEAT SLOPPY JOES?
You can definitely freeze the prepared hamburger meat until ready to serve. Wait for the mixture to cool down, spoon it into a freezer bag and freeze for up to 3 months.
When ready to serve, thaw the meat, heat it up in a skillet, and serve in hamburger buns.
- After cooking the ground beef, drain excess fat if any, for a lighter meal
- Add a splash of hot sauce for a more grown-up flavor
- Sometimes I add chopped olives for extra flavor
- If you like a cheesy mix, add shredded cheese to the meat mixture, or add a slice of cheese to the bun.
