Easy Keto Sloppy Joes (Family-Friendly Dinner Idea!)
Needing an easy, under 30-minute keto dinner idea?
An American classic turned keto! Sloppy Joes were one of my favorites when I was a kid and now my boys love them just as much as I did. Keep in mind, this sandwich is not a clean sandwich at all. In fact, the messier, the better! Pile the seasoned ground beef high on a keto bun and enjoy the messiness. 😋
Hip Recipe Tips:
- Keto Sloppy Joes never fail as I am always doubling this recipe since the kids love it even the next day for lunch. This is also the perfect recipe to make ahead and freeze for a later day.
- Like a little spice? Add 1 teaspoon of sriracha for some heat!
- The brown Swerve adds depth to the flavor of the meat with a touch of caramelized sweetness.
- Don’t have time to make a homemade bun? Omega Buns are an easy solution to serve up a hearty keto Sloppy Joe sandwich
