One of the many “Sloppy Joe” recipes I grew up on was this one. I was reminded of it last evening when our friend, Lou, served it up. YUM! I had forgotten all about this terrific and easy sandwich recipe my mama used to serve up to our family. When I saw this scrumptious easy dish simmering in the crock pot, I promptly asked, “Is this “maidrite” recipe made with chicken gumbo soup?” “It sure is!” she replied. I gobbled the sandwich right up and wanted another one. Took me back to farm livin’ as a kid. We ate a lot of beef. We raised it and it was always easy to grab out that beef out of the freezer. It’s the same for us today. We are blessed and thankful for it! Nutritious–delicious!
Well…. I refrained from having sandwich number 2. It was hard, but I did it. Had to save room for another yummy recipe made by another friend, Deb—a rhubarb cobbler and it was delicious! I don’t even like rhubarb…or so I thought. 🙂
Browning the beef.
onions with beef—-always. 🙂
I love using this ice cream scoop to scoop up the maidrite sandwiches.
Did you notice the beautiful flowers? The ones on the right were given to me for Mother’s Day! Yay!
The lillies of the valley on the left—-I just love these little aromatic bells. Could smell them all day. We have many, many plants of these around our farm. I’ll share. 🙂
- 1½-2 lbs ground beef
- salt and pepper to your liking
- ⅛ C minced onion (optional)
- Dash garlic powder
- 1-2 t prepared mustard
- 1 T Worcestershire sauce
- 1 can of Campbell's chicken gumbo soup
- Hamburger buns
- In a skillet or dutch oven, brown hamburger, but keep moist. Add a T water if needed. Add all other ingredients.
- Tip: This is a great dish for the crockpot.
Baked beans, potato salad and a tossed salad totally filled my plate. Yes, I ate every last bite.
I love this bible verse:
“I am a rose of Sharon, a lily of the valleys.”
That’s our Lord Jesus. 🙂
Enjoy this warm, green season.
P.S. Corn and bean planting is almost finished. Our men have been working such long hours to get those tiny expensive little seeds in the ground. Hopefully they can breathe a sigh of relief with rain in the forecast here in SW Iowa. No….life on the farm is not kinda laid back.
