Slow Cooker Pizza Joes


Slow Cooker Pizza Joes

I made dinner last night for some friends with little kids so I went looking for kid friendly recipes and found this one which reminded me of one I used to make for my kids called Taco Joes as they never really liked Sloppy Joes so I thought I’d give it a try.  She texted me after and said it was a hit with her kids and that the two littlest had more than one.  I think the baby pepperonis make this especially kid friendly.

2 pounds hamburger

1 onion, chopped

2 cloves garlic, pressed or minced

2 (14 oz each) jars pizza sauce

1 (5 oz) package mini pepperonis

1 teaspoon dried basil

1/2 teaspoon dried oregano

18 hamburger buns

2 cups “pizza” cheese (combo of Mozzarella, Provolone, Parmesan and Cheddar)

1  Cook hamburger, onion and garlic in skillet over medium high heat until beef is cooked through.  Drain off grease.

2  Pour beef mixture into slow cooker/crock pot then stir in remaining ingredients except buns and cheese.

3  Cover and cook on low for 4 – 6 hours.

4  To assemble, spoon about 1/3 cup beef mixture onto bun and top with about 2 tablespoons of cheese.
