This dish was one of the last things I cooked while on my weight loss challenge.  Serving it with Ezekiel “English” muffins made them out of this world. (ok, I know the photo doesn’t have an Ezekiel muffin, but I didn’t want to waste one for a photo shoot.  They were my prized possession.)

Ditch the store-bought can of sauce and make this easy Homemade Bison Sloppy Joe recipe with no additives, preservatives, salt or sugar.I was grasping onto my last chance for culinary creativity given the “list of ingredients” that fit into this stinking weight loss challenge.  How in the world I managed to come up with this low salt, low sugar version of Sloppy Joe’s is beyond me.  Technically, a Sloppy Joe is known for its sweet tangy flavor.  I compromised here by using a dash of 57 sauce to achieve the tang I was so longing to taste.

Replacing ground beef with Bison for this recipe is also perfect because well, Bison!  No really, Bison is not a grainy and ground beef.  It’s leaner and has much more flavor that 93/7 ground beef.

Next time you are in the meat department grab the Bison and give it a try.  I promise that once you go Bison you will rather fight than switch.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.
