Sloppy Joe Stuffed Baked Potatoes

Break out the handy wipes, napkins, and bibs because it’s about to get sloppy. If your childhood was like mine, and slathered in sloppy joes, this meal will definitely invoke some warm and fuzzy nostalgic feelings. For the purists out there, feel free to make this meal sans-potato to enjoy the tangy-sweet ground meat mixture in traditional fashion between two buns. For those of us who remember the countless t-shirts ruined by the classic sloppy joe preparation, let me introduce you to the sloppy joe stuffed baked potato. It’s not “classy”, but it is moderately less sloppy with a knife and fork. Either way you choose, bun or potato, this meal is a tasty treat and a classic family-favorite.
