Scalloped Potatos and Sloppy Joes

Sloppy Joes are really good, and I discovered a good mix for them a few months ago. Its called Not So Sloppy, you'll find it in a small jar near the canned chili in the grocery store. Use the best ground beef you can to keep the fat content down, serve on a bun.

The scalloped potato recipe is from Cooking Light Magazine, I highly recommend it.

Scalloped Potatos
2 medium or 3 small potatos cut into 1/8" slices
2 tbsp butter
Salt, pepper to taste
1/2c cheese (I used cheddar, but asiago and Greuyer are great too)
1c skim milk
1 clove garlic, halved

  1. Preheat oven to 425.
  2. Rub the clove of garlic onto the bottom and sides of your baking dish, then coat with cooking spray.
  3. Lay 1/2 of the potato slices on the bottom of the pan. Drizzle 1/2 of the butter, salt, pepper, and 1/4 of the cheese onto the potatos. Repeat.
  4. Warm the 1c of milk on the stove, then pour over the potatos.
  5. Bake for 40 minutes or until the potatos are tender.
And trust me, these are REALLY good.
