Cheesy Sloppy Joes
1/2 lb. lean ground beef/ground turkey
1 (10oz) Package frozen mixed Vegetables.
1 (6oz) can tomato paste
1 (1.3 or 1.5 oz) Package sloppy joe seasoning mix.
3 Whole Wheat Hamburger Buns/or whole-wheat English Muffins
6 (3/4oz) Slice Fat-Free Cheddar Cheese.
1. Heat a large non stick skillet over medium high heat. Add the beef and cook until browned, 4-5 minutes, stirring with a spoon to break it up. Discard any drippings.
2. Stir in the mixed vegetables, 1 1/3 cups water, and tomato paste, and seasoning mix; bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer, stirring, until thickened, about 10 minutes.
3. Meanwhile, preheat the broiler; Place the buns, cut side up, on a broiler rack and broil 3 inches from the heat until toasted 1 - 2 minutes. (I put mine in the toaster). Top each bun half with 1 slice of cheese and broil until the cheese is melted, about 1 minute longer. Spoon 1/2 cup of the beef mixture on top of each bun half and serve at once.
