Cast Iron Sloppy Joes

When’s the last time you had a Sloppy Joe? I bet you immediately think of a can of Manwich and a soft bun. A memory from childhood. Well, that’s exactly what sparked this recipe idea.

Grab your ingredients! All you need to make this sloppy joe mix is bacon, beef, peppers, onion, jalapeno (for a little kick) garlic, Worcestershire, spices, mustard, and ketchup.

Potatoes are also a key part Make sure to grab 4 even-sized Idaho Potatoes. I prefer russets for baking.

You can prep this filling at home on the stovetop ahead of time if you want, or you can cook it over the campfire as I describe on the next slides.

Start by popping the potatoes on the edge of a well maintained camp fire. Then, get a skillet hot and fry the bacon, toss in the onions and peppers to saute.

Next up you brown the beef before adding in the liquids (ketchup, mustard, Worcestershire) and let it all simmer down a bit. When the potatoes are ready, you spoon heaping portions of the campfire Sloppy Joes right over top.
