Eat Twice Cook Once : Sloppy Joe Hoagies

Its that time of year cook one freeze one in our house. It helps cut down on whats for supper as it is in the freezer and the holiday season gets very busy around here. Try this delicious recipe for sloppy joes and freeze some as well
2 pounds ground beef or ground turkey
1 onion chopped
1 green pepper chopped (optional - I just grabbed some that I had chopped and frozen)
2 small cans of tomato sauce
1 can of water
1/4 cup of BBQ Sauce (any kind that you got for cheap will do)
2 Tablespoons of Worcestershire sauce
2 Tablespoons of Brown Sugar
2 Tablespoons of Apple Cider Vinegar (any will do)
2 Tablespoons of Mustard
1 Teaspoon of Garlic Salt
Brown your beef or turkey in a pan.  Add onion and green pepper -cook until soft. Add all other ingredients. Bring to a boil.  Reduce heat, cover and let simmer for 10 minutes. Serve on any kind of buns you have on hand.

Frugal tip: Buy buns or hoagie rolls when they get clearanced out because of their date. Then pop them in the freezer. Pull out only what you need for dinner. Place in the oven around  350 degrees (or along side your french fries) until thawed and warmed through. It is that easy. In the picture above, I got the entire package of hoagie rolls for just $.50, and they were enough for 2 dinners. That means it is only $.25 per dinner! Now, that is frugal!
