Customize it any way you want. You could switch out the BBQ sauce with taco sauce to make this a cheater version of tacos. Or marinara to make Italian sandwiches. Thai peanut sauce with ground chicken or turkey or cubes of tofu would be great. And of course if you like veggies, throw those in too, I kept mine veggie-free since I know that would be an immediate turnoff for the toddler. A tasty vegetarian version would be roasted veggies with some pesto sauce and mozzarella cheese.
Ingredientsmakes 4-6 pocket sandwiches
- 1 lb ground beef (mine was a frozen bag of pre-cooked ground beef)
- 1/4 to 1/3 cup your favorite BBQ sauce, plus more for topping (ours was Smoky Jon's, only blocks away from our house)
- shredded cheese
- 4-6 pita bread pockets (we used Arnold Bread 100% whole wheat pocket thins)
DirectionsHeat up the pre-cooked ground beef or brown and drain if yours isn't pre-cooked. Add the 1/4 to 1/3 cup BBQ sauce and ensure everything is heated through.
