Sloppy Joan Bake

It’s cold and rainy here and Patti wanted comfort food. Ken loves potato nuggets, so instead of making his sloppy Joe’s on hamburger buns Patti made one of her famous casseroles using hot sausage instead of ground beef. This one can be really versatile. To make it extra hot use hot sausage and pepper jack cheese. For milder you can use mild sausage and cheddar cheese or mix it up like we did. Plus, you can put it all together the night before. Keep in mind your Pacific Living Outdoor Oven has a smoke box to add another layer of smoky good flavor.

Note:

The bottom stone and it gets “HOT” so you need to stay right with it or you will burn what your are cooking. I only use heavy cast iron or baking dishes here. For most things I have found that it is better to use the middle shelf. You can use a stone here or not depending on your cook.

About our Recipes

We do our recipes on our patio where we have a lineup of grills, including Louisiana, Green Mountain, Royall, Memphis, Traeger pellet grills, Char Griller side box smoker, Saber, Charmglow, Char-Broil, The Big Easy, Pacific Living Outdoor Oven, Lodge Sportsman’s, Brinkman and Weber. I call it our “Wall of Grill”. Our grilling styles are healthy and low fat and will fit pelletheads, gas, natural wood and even charcoal purists. Almost any of our recipes can be done on any kind of good BBQ.

The important thing to keep in mind is TIME & TEMPERATURE. You can even do some of them in the oven or crock pot, but, then you lose all the flavors you get from cooking outdoors. But sometimes it does rain.

Remember that a recipe is simply an outline; it is not written in stone. Don’t be afraid to make changes to suit your taste. Take it and run with it….
