The Tuesday Success Tip

For recipes that make large meals, preportion and freeze!  Grab and eat helps a ton, especially when the rest of the family is having a fast food night and you don't have enough points left to join in.

I divided up the leftover Family Friendly Weight Watcher Sloppy Joe filling over the summer.  Five out of five of us eat this one, and it makes a lot.

Here is the recipe and nutritional information so you can figure out your points as well:

1.5 lbs ground round
1 cup fresh onion
1/2 cup fresh green bell pepper
1 (8-oz.) can no-salt-added tomato sauce
1 cup ketchup
1 Tbsp. dark brown sugar
1-1/2 Tbsp. low-salt Worcestershire sauce
1-1/2 Tbsp. lemon juice
1-1/2 Tbsp. yellow mustard
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
1/4 tsp. black pepper
8 (1.5-oz) reduced-calorie whole-what hamburger buns

Coat a nonstick skillet with cooking spray; place over medium-high heat until hot. Add beef, onion, bell pepper and cook until beef is browned, stirring to crumble.  Drain in a colander & set aside.  Wipe drippings from skillet w/a paper towel.  Return beef mixture to skillet.  Stir in tomato sauce and next 7 ingredients; cook over medium heat 10 minutes or until slightly thick, stirring frequently.  Spoon beef mixture evenly between 8 buns.
