comfort food

At our most recent Pot-Luck Lunch at work we were to bring a favorite recipe of our mother's. Growing up we had Sloppy Joes fairly often so I made a more "grown-up" version and it was a success.

Cheesy Sloppy Joes
(on Texas Toast)

Preparation Time: 30 minutes
Yield: Makes 6 servings

1 1/2 pounds lean ground beef
1/4 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup chopped green bell pepper
1 teaspoon prepared yellow mustard
1 15 oz can tomato sauce (or diced tomatoes)
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
3 teaspoons brown sugar
3 teaspoons Montreal Steak Seasoning

1 package (12 pieces) frozen garlic or cheese Texas Toast
3/4 cup (2 oz.) shredded sharp Cheddar cheese

1. Brown ground beef in a large skillet over medium-high heat, stirring often, 8 to 10 minutes or until beef crumbles and is no longer pink; remove from pan and drain well. Sauté onion and pepper in same pan. Return beef to skillet. Stir in rest of ingredients. Cover and cook 10 minutes.

2. Meanwhile, prepare Texas toast according to package directions. Serve beef mixture over Texas toast; sprinkle with cheese.
