Sam & Cat Sloppy Waffles

 A nod to the popular preteen TV show Sam & Cat, these sloppy waffles pair classic sloppy joes with crisp waffles.


Years ago, my daughter fell in love with a kids show called Sam and Cat. This show melds two shows the kids use to watch together. It stars Sam Puckett (Jennette McCurdy) from iCarly and Cat Valentine (Ariana Grande) from Victorious. It's a witty and fun show and the kids loved the hijinks these two girls get into every week. In one particular episode, they get stuck inside a secret room, they find in their apartment (which use to be Cat's Nonna's before she moved to Elderly Acres). While they are stuck in the secret room, Cat mentions her idea of Sloppy Waffles, which pairs waffles and sloppy joes. Sam falls in love with the idea and once they are rescued by their friend Goomer, the show ends with the girls enjoying Sloppy Waffles. We recently watched the episode on Netflix, and the kids commented that we should try to make Sloppy Waffles. I thought it was a fun idea, so I decided to give it a try.

I used my go to waffle recipe and made sloppy joe filling in the crock pot. I love cooking ground beef in the crock pot, because it comes out so tender and melt in your mouth. I decided to top my waffles with cheese, because I love cheese with my sloppy joes. My nephew was visiting, so he was able to try this crazy concoction. Everyone thought the combination of waffles and sloppy joes was delicious, but the kiddos said they prefered buns to waffles. I thought it was a fun twist on a classic recipe. The fluffy waffles go well with the sweet and savory beef. A super fun recipe for kids and those young at heart.


Sam & Cat Sloppy Waffles

Sloppy Joe filling:
1 lb lean ground beef
1 onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 red pepper, finely chopped
2 Tbs tomato puree
1/2 C beef broth
1/2 tsp oregano
1/3 C ketchup
1/4 C BBQ sauce (I used Bull's Eye original)
shredded cheddar, if desired
sliced green onion, for garnish

Waffles:
4 Tbs butter, melted
2 eggs
1 3/4C milk
3 Tbs sugar
2 C flour
3 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt

In a large skillet, cook the ground beef, until browned, but not cooked through. Pour browned beef in a 4 qt crock pot and add in the onion, garlic, tomato puree, beef broth, oregano, ketchup and BBQ sauce. Stir to combine, cover and cook on LOW for 6 hrs.

Once beef has simmered for 6 hrs, preheat your waffle iron. In a mixing bowl beat the eggs with the sugar and melted butter, until smooth and thick. Add in the milk, flour, baking powder and salt and whisk to combine, ensuring there are no lumps. Let batter rest 3 minutes. Pour small amounts of batter, onto hot waffle iron plates (remember the batter expands when hot, so don't over fill) and close the waffle iron. Cook for 5 minutes, until the waffle iron stops steaming. Repeat with remaining batter.

To serve place one waffle on a plate, top with sloppy joe filling and top with a second waffles. Sprinkle filling with cheese if desired.

No Yeast Old Fashion Cinnamon Rolls

 These delicious cinnamon sticky rolls have been in my family for over 40 yrs. No yeast is required, so you can whip up a batch of these in no time. Still tender, sticky sweet and delicious! Ever since I can remember Mom would make these as a special treat. It wasn't too often, but every once in a while, we'd come home to these no yeast cinnamon rolls, as an after school snack. Growing up, this is what I thought cinnamon rolls were. I wasn't aware that there was a yeast version of cinnamon rolls. As much as I LOVE the yeast version, this no yeast version seems to make an appearance more frequently here at home.  Since there is no yeast in the dough, it does not need to rise for 30 minutes before being rolled out and baked. When I worked in the retirement home the residents were always excited when I made these cinnamon rolls. They said it reminded them of their childhood. It was amazing seeing how happy a simple recipe could make them. I don't make these very often and

Black Forest Roll Cake

Light and fluffy cherry and whipped cream filling is rolled in an airy sponge cake. 13 years ago, I made a dinner that I was totally proud of. Not only did it taste wonderful, it looks fantastic too. I was so proud of myself that I took a photo, which I wanted to share with my friends and family. Only I didn't know how I could share it with everyone, at the same time. Then a thought came to me- a blog!!!  I've always been a foodie. While growing up, I'd often watch talk shows, just to see the cooking segments. I'd sit with a pen and paper, quickly jotting down ingredients and directions, to hopefully recreate recipes at home. I still remember a beet salad I begged my mom to let me make, asking her to buy raspberry wine vinegar for the dressing. It turned out to be something neither of us enjoyed, and up until a few years ago, Mom still had the vinegar in her cupboard.  I first started my first blog, Hun... What's  for Dinner?, as a way to share recipes with my famil

Peanut Butter Confetti Squares

 A mixture of peanut butter and butterscotch chips, coat colourful marshmallows, for a simple, fun and easy holiday treat! My family calls these Galettes Froides, but most people know these as confetti squares. My grandmothers would make these for Christmas, and Mom has been making these desserts at Christmas time, since I can remember. They've always been my favourite because of the use of the rainbow marshmallows. There's just something about the colours that make these looks so yummy. These squares couldn't be more simple to make and I love that they are no bake as well. Some people use regular white marshmallows, some people use chunky peanut butter and some people add coconut. I like them each and every way I can get them. It wouldn't be Christmas without these confetti squares making an appearance.
