Gluten Free Sloppy Joe Bites. Perfect lunch or afternoon snack! These gluten free treats will not disappoint!

I’ll be honest, cutting back on our grains has done wonders for my family’s health and it’s been pretty easy to make the transition at breakfast and dinner but I really struggled with finding lunch foods. What could I find that would replace the ease and convenience of a sandwich at lunch? It took awhile, but I came up with several easy lunch options that I can prepare ahead of time and the kids can make for themselves. One of these is my Sloppy Joe Bites. They are super easy and the kids devour them!

Save Recipe

Ingredients

  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup chopped green bell pepper
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 teaspoon yellow mustard
  • 3/4 cup ketchup
  • 3 tsp honey
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • Gluten free cracker bowls (recipe below)

Instructions

  1. In a skillet over medium heat, brown the ground beef, onion, garlic and green pepper
  2. Drain oil
  3. Stir in the mustard, ketchup, and honey
  4. Reduce heat, and simmer for at least 30 minutes (longer is better!)
  5. While the sauce is simmering prepare cracker bowls
  6. To make the cracker bowls, you will need a mini muffin pan and a batch of my Paleo/Gluten Free Crackers, We are going to change it up a little bit though. After you roll the dough out, use a cookie cutter (approx 3 inch diameter) and cut out the dough into circles, place the circles in the muffin pan, being careful not to tear them. Bake per the original recipe.
  7. Fill the bowls with the sloppy joe meat and top with some cheese. Your kids will love it!
