Sloppy joe baked potatoes

Sloppy joe baked potatoes!
Russet potatoes (1 per serving)
Butter, unsalted
Shredded Colby cheese
Sloppy Joe meat (using canned Sloppy Joe or Manwich sauce)
Salt and pepper, to taste
Optional toppings: sliced green onions, sour cream, chopped fresh parsley


1. Prepare the Baked Potatoes:
Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C).
Scrub the potatoes thoroughly under running water to remove any dirt.
Pat the potatoes dry with a paper towel.
Prick the potatoes several times with a fork or knife to allow steam to escape during baking.
Rub each potato with a little bit of olive oil and sprinkle with salt.
Place the potatoes directly on the oven rack or on a baking sheet lined with foil.
Bake the potatoes for 45-60 minutes, or until they are tender when pierced with a fork.
2. Prepare the Sloppy Joe Meat:
While the potatoes are baking, prepare the Sloppy Joe meat according to the instructions on the canned sauce. Typically, this involves browning ground beef in a skillet, draining excess fat, and then adding the sauce to simmer until heated through.
3. Assemble the Sloppy Joe Baked Potatoes:
Once the potatoes are baked, remove them from the oven.
Carefully make a slit lengthwise in the center of each potato, fluffing up the insides with a fork.
Add a pat of butter into each potato and season with salt and pepper to taste.
4. Add Sloppy Joe Meat:
Spoon a generous portion of the prepared Sloppy Joe meat over each potato, allowing it to seep into the fluffy interior.
5. Add Colby Cheese:
Sprinkle a generous amount of shredded Colby cheese over the hot Sloppy Joe meat. The heat from the meat and potatoes will melt the cheese beautifully.
6. Optional Toppings:
If desired, garnish the Sloppy Joe Baked Potatoes with sliced green onions, a dollop of sour cream, and a sprinkle of chopped fresh parsley.
