I was cleaning out my fridge (gross) and came across a 1/2 of a block of Velveeta cheese. For the life of me I cannot recall what I made with the other half, but I vagly remember a recent kitchen memory of me cooking with my 15 year old and she was cutting 1/2 a block of Velveeta.
It was wrapped properly and quite frankly I don’t think that stuff ever expires….
But I digress. I needed to come up with a recipe to use up that half a block of the orange gooey cheese. I know not everyone is a fan of Velveeta but hey, I am. So there!
So, I whipped up this mighty tasty (if I do say so myself) recipe that I like to call Cheeseburger Joes.
They are like Sloppy Joes only not so tomatoey (is that a word? Probably not). They are still sloppy though and taste mighty good. My 7 year old son Liam LOVES himself a cheeseburger and he LOVED this recipe and had 2 big ol honkin’ sandwiches.
This is a recipe that does not actually take very long to cook in the crock-pot. You just need to cook it long enough to melt the cheese and let the flavors meld together a bit. I started mine mid afternoon and it was done by dinner time. Unless you set a timer or have someone put the crock on in the afternoon this is not a good recipe for starting in the morning and having dinner at night. But for a day when you are home this works. I could totally see me throwing everything in the crock in the morning, stashing it in the fridge then calling home to have the teen put it in the crock-pot base and turning it on.
Anyways…try it, it’s good and cheesy!
