Sloppy Joes - Pioneer Woman Recipe
We haven't had sloppy Joes, in ages, because I have not had hamburger buns that were gluten-free. When I received my sample of breads and buns from Kinnikinnick, there were both hamburger and hot dog buns included beside the different breads.
Having buns, especially ones that felt soft and looked delicious was a great motivator and I was excited about making something as commonplace as sloppy Joes. I found a recipe that appealed to me on Pioneer Woman's site. Ree always explains what she is doing and here, she included lessons on how to cut onions and green peppers. I checked out my methods and found I could improve on bell pepper chopping.
I was asked to review these bread products from Kinnikinnick and at first, I was hesitant to get involved. I am always fearful, I won't be happy with the product and who wants to write a bad review and I would not share with any of you, anything that is not true.
I was thrilled that not only did we like these rolls and bread, we plan to buy them, making life easier on us and still having full bodied bread that tastes and feels like any bread you buy in the bakery. Each of the four, we tried, was appreciated by each of us.
It is interesting, I eat almost everything gluten-free with my husband but I do not eat his home-baked bread. It does not appeal to me. I also would not bake my own, knowing he could not eat it. He would not mind if I baked or bought "regular" bread but something inside of me, rarely lets me do it. Therefore, I was the one deprived of rolls and bread.
Kinnickinnick changed this for us and I thank them. Also, I want to express my gratitude to Kimberly who made this easy for me to handle, willing to answer any questions and offering anything I might need. A little information about this bread. Note that it is kosher and of course, it has to be, for us.
