Quarter-Pounder Sloppy Joes Wrap On A Shoestring Base & Budget - RSC
May 10, 2018
"Created for Rd 3 of the FF&F RSC game, this Sloppy Joes sandwich wrap recipe was designed to be family-friendly, multi-functional & a ton of FUN to prepare & consume. Its “bones” are fairly classic, but the presentation was given a modern makeover to transform them into a welcome weeknight family meal or great fare for all-occasion family meals (campsite, picnic, patio party, etc). This will be the recipe your kids (or grandkids) brag about when they recall a signature dish you made for them (Pls read my NOTES in the Prep Steps before you begin this recipe). ENJOY!"

In a lrg skillet over med-high heat, cook grd beef, diced onion & diced red bell pepper (if using) until the meat is browned & the vegetables are tender. Stir to break apart the meat as you cook the mixture & drain the rendered fat before continuing the recipe.
Add the dried minced onion w/its water (if using), ketchup, garlic of choice, brown sugar & black pepper to taste (Salt will not be needed). Stir well to combine & heat all the ingredients. You may need to add a bit of water for good coverage of the ingredients, but use caution as you don't want excess moisture. Then remove from the heat to assemble the wraps.
TO ASEMBLE EA WRAP: Down the center of each flour tortilla, place a 4-oz row of the shoestring potatoes. Sprinkle the shoestring potatoes w/2-oz of shredded cheddar cheese. Cover w/4-oz of the sloppy joes mixture & sprinkle 2-oz more of shredded cheese over the sloppy joes mixture. It’s a wrap (Pun intended)! -- The yield is 4 lrg wraps, so I decided to show as 6 servings. 2 should be kept whole & the other 2 halved to serve, esp if they are accompanied by other food products.
TO SERVE: My personal choice will be to eat my wrap w/avocado slices & fruit or a side-salad using a knife & fork. For smaller appetites w/messy table skills, I suggest you halve their wraps & maybe even wrap 1 end in foil for hand-to-mouth consumption. You get to decide these issues.
NOTE FROM ME: Altho I’ve given the detail needed to make this recipe from scratch, I know many families have a personal preference version of the Sloppy Joes mixture. If you do, feel free to use it w/my blessing (or amend my ingredient list) & then follow the remainder of the Prep Steps.
