Holiday Olive Sloppy Joe Sliders Recipe


During the holidays, families and friends gather around the table bringing their favorite foods to share and the stories behind what maybe was Grandma's winning dish at the county fair. I adored my Grandmother, watching her in the kitchen, learning to make her favorite go to recipes and with 16 children she needed to create easy, yet tasty meal to satisfy them. Now I've passed along those recipes to my kids. Sloppy Joe was one of my favorites of hers, being a vegetarian I'm missed eating the original recipe, so with help from my youngest chef, we've created a new version adding our families favorite ingredient to it, Mezzetta Kalamata olives! Adding the red and green olives gives my grandmother's sloppy joe that colorful holiday twist.

Do you have a favourite holiday recipe? Is there a dish that makes you nostalgic?
