Sloppy Joe Dogs

Hot dogs are a summer staple around here, and the more ways I can find to serve them up, the better!  We love sloppy joes, so when I saw this recipe from Taste of Home, I couldn't wait to give it a try.  The only change I made was to use red bell pepper instead of green.

I actually made the topping ahead and split it into a few batches.  Some I stashed in the freezer, and the rest I kept in the fridge. This made the meal come together super quickly. I just reheated the sloppy joe mixture in a disposable pan on the grill while I cooked the hot dogs.


In this house, hot dogs are always served on New England style buns. I've even shipped them to friends across the country that can't get them because I feel bad they're missing out.   I'm so excited to see that Karen is sharing a recipe for homemade ones this week! I spread softened butter on each side of the roll and grill them until they are golden brown.

These are so good, the best of two great dishes on one plate! Thank you to Kimberly W. for sharing her recipe. Check out all the other great #HotDogDay recipes being shared by the #FestiveFoodies using the links below.  Thanks to Christie for hosting!

  1. I had never even heard of New England Hot Dog Buns until I read Karen's post. Your sloppy dogs sound amazing.

  2. New England buns are new to me, too. Hoping over to Karen's post next. I will never forget how much my older son loved Sloppy Joe's when he was in preschool...and he could NEVER remember their name. "Messy Jacks?!" he called them once. That name stuck in our house.

  3. Thanks so much for the mention! These sloppy Joe hot dogs look delicious, and that fact that you can get the buns readily makes me very jealous. I love the buttered and grilled sides!

    1. I didn't even realize that there were any other kind of buns until I was in college and my out of state roommates had never seen one LOL

Copycat Dunkin Donuts Bacon and Cheddar Omelet Bites

Since I already came up with a version of Dunkin Donuts new Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites for myself, I decided to make the other variety that they are offering, Bacon & Cheddar, for my husband. Super simple.  Beat up some eggs with salt and pepper.  Add in some shredded cheddar and a slice of bacon cut into 1/4" pieces (I used kitchen shears).  Bake them for about 9 minutes in sprayed mini donut pans. They baked up light and fluffy.  The bacon stayed crisp and there's just the perfect amount of cheese.   I split them up into portions in zip top bags and that way we can just grab a bag and warm them up. My husband laughed when I told him 3 is the serving size.  I'll definitely be doubling the recipe next time! ************************* Copycat Dunkin Donuts Bacon & Cheddar Omelette Bites Print With Image Without Image Author: Jolene's Recipe Journal Ingredients 4 large eggs 1/4 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon pepper 3T shredded cheddar cheese 1 slice cooked ba

Copycat Dunkin Donuts Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites

I'm a huge fan of the Dunkin Donuts Power Breakfast sandwich, so when I started seeing ads for the new Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites I stopped in and gave them a try.  They were delicious, but of course, I knew I could make them at home.  I started with the whites of six eggs. You can use pasturized whites if you don't want to do the whole separating, finding a use for the yolks thing.  I beat them up with some salt and pepper. Next up, the tomato and spinach.  I used grape tomatoes, seeded them and then chopped them into 1/4" pieces. I like baby spinach, and I took about 10 leaves and chopped those up into 1/4" pieces as well. I added that to the egg mixture.  When you pour it into the pans, be sure that it all gets evenly distributed.   They bake up pretty quickly, around 9 minutes or so.  Dunkin gives you two egg bites, the mini donut serving size is three. I pop them in ziplocs in the fridge and just pull a bag and reheat them in the microwave for a quick

Copycat Olive Garden Fried Lasagna

On a recent trip to Olive Garden, I tried the Lasagna Fritta.   Fried pasta and cheeses, with two fantastic sauces.    Few chain restaurant dishes stick with me, but I had a hard time getting this one out of my mind.   I decided I wanted to recreate it at home, but instead of an appetizer portion, I wanted dinner size.    It's a little fidgety, but once you get an assembly line process going, it's pretty smooth.   I used pre-shredded/grated cheeses, you are more than welcome to shred your own.   I also used store bought marinara and alfredo, but it would be over-the-top fantastic with from-scratch sauces. This was a huge hit here.   While it's not something that I'd make weekly, it was a fun way to present lasagna to my picky eater, who doesn't like a lot of red sauce.  Since there are only 3 of us, I froze the remaining fried bundles in single serve portions.   They can be heated from frozen, or defrosted in the fridge overnight.    Enjoy!   Fried Lasagna P
