Hi! I'm Kelly and I am so thrilled to be contributing to Amanda's blog. Love it! I love cooking and baking even more. I am the mom of one great eater, Olivia (age 7), and one picky eater, Nicholas (age 5). Today I am sharing 3 recipes that are Nicholas approved. All are hot sandwiches/hoagies.

Ground Turkey Sloppy Joes
(can use beef or chicken)

1 lb ground meat
1 cup water
3 tablespoons barbecue sauce
1 pkt onion soup mix
4 tablespoons tomato paste

Cook meat until brown and crumbly over med-high heat. Drain. Stir in remaining ingredients, bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes or until thickened. Broil buttered buns in oven. Serve with french fries.

Fabulous French Dip Sandwiches
(one of the few times I eat red meat)

4-5lb brisket or boneless beef round roast
1 Can beef broth
1 can french onion soup
vegetable oil
garlic salt
onion salt
1/8 tsp oregano (optional)
provolone cheese
hoagie buns

Cut brisket in half. Using a small amount of vegetable oil, place brisket in skillet and season with garlic salt, onion salt, and pepper and brown on both sides. Put in crock pot. Cover with beef broth and french onion soup. Cook on high 5 to 6 hours. Pull out meat and shred. Put back in crock pot with oregano. cook on low another 2 hours.

Put meat on hoagie buns and top with cheese. Broil these in the oven to melt the cheese and toast the buns for just a couple of minutes.

Sloppy Chicken Pizza Joes

nonstick cooking spray
3lbs ground chicken
2 14oz jars pizza sauce
2 C total frozen red and green pepper and onions. I use fresh ones though.

Brown chicken in spray coated pan until no longer pink. In crock pot, stir together pizza sauce and veggies. Stir in cooked chicken. Cook on high 3 to 4 hours or on low 6 to 8 hours. Broil hoagies with cheese and then remove and add sloppy chicken mixture.

Hope you enjoy these easy recipes! I am always looking for new quick meals to fix, especially with school starting soon.
