Healthier Sloppy Joes | Hyde Park Moms
These Healthy Sloppy Joes have quickly become a fan favorite in my house. You can also modify this recipe in many ways to make it even healthier for your family. I also love that it’s quick, easy and cheap! You will easily have leftovers, or you can double the batch if you have a brood of hungry kiddos.
Make this recipe this week and tag @hydeparkmoms if you give it a try!
Serves 4 adults. 

  • 1 lb of grass-fed ground beef (can use turkey, chicken too)
  • 1/2 yellow onion, chopped
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1/2 green bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 garlic clove minced
  • 1 cup of baby spinach (or more)
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1 tbs yellow mustard
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1/4 cup honey (add more if you like it a little sweeter)
  • 1 tbs worstechire 
  • 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 small can of tomato sauce
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Sauté chopped onion, garlic, red and green bell peppers in olive oil in a cast iron skillet (or any large pan you have).
  2. Add in spinach once the veggies are soft. Let it all wilt down.
  3. Remove from cast iron and add in beef.
  4. Brown beef then drain once fully cooked.
  5. Add the veggies and meat back into the pan.
  6. Combine last 8 ingredients to the pan and stir around to make the sauce (honestly, I do eyeball most of this, so adjust to your taste!).
  7. Serve on honey buns or any bun you’d like. You can also top with cheese!
