meat-free sloppy joe

mushroom bolognese sloppy joes

I had to satisfy that craving for mushroom bolognese over the weekend. It hit the spot and, as usual, I had some sauce left over. Why did it never occur to me before to use any extras for sloppy joes? I hadn’t had one in decades (decades!) and they’re just as good as I remembered. Lunch yesterday was a heaping cup of bolognese on a soft kaiser with spicy pickled vegetables on the side. My craving for mushroom bolognese is settled but I’m already craving another sloppy joe sandwich. You’re witnessing the start of a delicious, vicious cycle.
