White Sloppy Joes for dinner

One of our dinners last week. It doubles easily and you can freeze it BEFORE adding yogurt. We like it plain or served on buttered toast.

If you are like me, then you want to know what else we had for dinner that night….For the rest of our dinner, we had butternut squash soup, cold milk and homemade applesauce.  The applesauce was so easy to make! We put quartered and cored apples into our crockpot with 1 cup water. Set to low for 8 hours. I stirred it very occasionally (2 or 3 times?).  Then I put it through a food mill – Ta Da!!

White Sloppy Joes



  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 2 pieces of cooked bacon
  • 1 onion
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 1 Tbs. thickener (I used Potato Starch)
  • salt, pepper
  • 2-3 Tbs. plain Yogurt.
  • Optional – 1/2 package of mushrooms, chopped small.


*I usually double this recipe and freeze 1/2 for another dinner.

Saute the onion in 1-2 Tbs. butter for 8 minutes. If you are adding mushrooms, saute them here. Add ground beef and brown it. Crumble bacon into pan. Add thickener, 5 pepper cranks, and 1 tsp. salt, stirring well to blend. Add broth slowly (or if it is frozen, it will melt slowly). Continue stirring well.  Turn off heat. If you doubled the recipe or plan to save some of it, this is the point where you remove that amount from your pan. Add yogurt to what is left in the pan and stir well.  Serve by itself or over buttered toast. YUM!
