Directions for: Sloppy Joes with Cheese


1 lb(s) (500 g) lean ground beef

1 onion, minced

1 clove garlic, minced

1 tsp (5 mL) each chili powder and dry mustard

¼ tsp (1 mL) each salt and cayenne pepper

2 cup (500 mL) tomato sauce

1 small zucchini, shredded

4 tsp (20 mL) molasses

1 tsp (5 mL) cider vinegar

4 burger buns

1 cup (250 mL) Black Diamond Mozza Cheddar Shredded Cheese


1. In a saucepan over medium-high heat, fry beef, onion, garlic, chili powder, mustard, salt and cayenne, breaking beef up with a spoon, until no longer pink and onions are softened, 5 to 7 minutes.

2. Stir in tomato sauce, zucchini, molasses and vinegar; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until thickened, about 5 minutes.

3. Meanwhile, halve buns (if necessary). Place, cut sides up, on baking sheet; sprinkle cut surfaces with cheese. Watching closely, broil, about 8-inches (20 cm) from heat, until cheese is bubbly and buns are golden, about 1 minute.

4. Divide bottom halves of buns among plates; spoon meat mixture over. Top with lids.
