Sloppy Joes with Flatbread

We have this every so often, so I thought I would share. The flatbread (like a pancake) is also good made into grilled cheese sandwiches. This recipe only makes a couple so I always at least double. They are not dry. I serve by topping a flatbread with sloppy joe and top with shredded cheese and green onion, and a side of homemade cole slaw. I would like to give the person that posted these recipes credit, but I forgot where I found them, as it has been a while ago. I did alter a little to suit our taste.


Flatbread (I double this because it doesn't make very much)
In a bowl, I mixed the following together:
2 large eggs
2 Tbsp coconut flour
1/8 tsp baking soda
1/8 tsp baking powder
2 pinches of sea salt
1/4 cup any kind of milk
*you can add herbs too–it’s really good!
Mix everything and fry sandwich size, about a 1/4 cup, like a pancake.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

SLOPPY JOES
1 pound ground chuck
1 small onion, chopped (2 1/2 ounces)
1 clove garlic, minced
8 ounce can tomato sauce
(I also add squirt ketchup, but not necessary)
1/8 cup granular Splenda or equivalent liquid Splenda, or stevia
1/2 teaspoon blackstrap molasses, optional
2 tablespoon vinegar
1 teaspoon mustard
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon xanthan gum, optional
Brown the ground chuck along with the onion and garlic; drain the fat. Add the remaining ingredients, except the xanthan gum. Cover and simmer 30 minutes. If the sauce is too thin, thicken it with a little xanthan gum. Serve on low carb buns or over chopped lettuce (not included in counts).
Makes about 6 servings
Can be frozen
TIP: An easy way to add the xanthan gum is to stir it into the ground beef after you've drained the grease and before you add the remaining ingredients.

The flatbread looks good Linda Sue! How would you describe the consistency?

I've never made the flat bread, only the sloppy Joes.

Thanks, Linda Sue. They are now our favorite. The flatbread I found from a blog in which the person was using them for grilled cheese, but I discovered they go great with the sloppy joes. Thanks for the recipe, and sorry I am so bad about remembering where I get the them. I now have Evernote and it tells me where I get the recipe, so the author will get the recognigition from now on. It has definitely been one of my flaws, because I save so many.
