"Growing up Southern is a privilege, really. It's more than where you're born - it's an idea, a state of mind that seems imparted at birth. It's more than loving fried chicken, sweet tea, high school football, country music, and acoustic guitars. It's being hospitable, being devoted to front porches, magnolias, the good Lord, and each other. We don't become Southern - we're born that way."


Sloppy Joe Pizza

I found this recipe at Recipe Shoebox. I made it this weekend when the kids weren't home, and John and I LOVED it. In fact, John pronounced it "Off the Chain", which is the equivalent of a 5 Star rating at our house.
I made it again tonight for the kids, and they loved it too, although the girls were skeptical. They said it sounded gross. *eyeroll* But - they loved it! Tim just inhaled it, typical of him.
Anyway, I just had to share it with y'all!

Sloppy Joe Pizza
From the Recipe Shoebox.

The ingredients:
1 lb. ground beef (or ground turkey)
1 medium onion, diced
1 can (16-oz) whole kernel corn, drained
1+ cup favorite BBQ sauce (add until you get to your sauciness level)
1/2 cup sliced green onions
1 (12-inch) prebaked pizza crust
1-1/2 cups shredded colby-jack cheese

Directions: Preheat oven to 425 degrees. In large skillet, brown meat and onion over medium heat 8-10 minutes or until no longer pink. Stir in corn, BBQ sauce, green onions, and heat through. Spoon beef mixture over prebaked crust on baking sheet. Sprinkle cheese on top. Bake 12-15 minutes or until cheese is melted. Makes 6-8 servings. Enjoy!

I actually used a can of Manwich instead of BBQ sauce, but I only used about 2/3 of the can because John doesn't like it super-saucy. (I guess I'm saucy enough for him. HA!)


  1. This is different. It sounds delicious.

  2. Very cool recipe! I will have to try it for the meat-eaters! LOL :)

  3. I've made something like this before - and my family loved it! It's been a while so maybe I'll make it again soon - so quick, easy and yummy. =)


I LOVE feedback! Please let me know if you try one of my recipes or tips.
