Sloppy Joe's Stuffed in Pretzel Dough

Sloppy Joe's Stuffed in Pretzel Dough
My family loves homemade Sloppy Joe's and they love homemade soft pretzels, so we decided to combine the two together, to come up with the perfect meal!

You can find all kinds of great homemade soft pretzels recipes on the web (we like the one on the Food Network) or you can purchase a pre-packaged mix at your local grocery store if you want to save time. We prefer whipping it up from scratch, which always tastes better.

We make our Sloppy Joe's from scratch using lean ground beef, finely chopped onions, chopped green bell pepper, Italian tomato sauce, brown sugar, basil and a tad of salt & ground black pepper. I don't measure out my ingredients and just toss things in until I like the taste. If you prefer your's with a little kick, you can toss in some hot sauce to add some heat.

While your Sloppy Joe filling is simmering on low heat...you'll want to mix up your soft pretzel dough according to package directions. If you're making it from scratch, you'll have to make the dough earlier in the day to allow sufficient time for rising and kneading.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly spray a baking dish with non-stick baking spray.

Separate your prepared dough into equal proportions and flatten down each section. Spoon the prepared filling into the center of the dough and then wrap the dough up around your filling to encase it inside. Melt a little bit of butter in your microwave and then brush the tops with the melted butter and sprinkle the pretzel salt on top.

Place baking dish into the oven and bake for 10-12 minutes or until done. Remove and let them sit in the pan for additional 2-3 minutes before serving. If desired, you can toss some shredded cheese on top, right after you remove them from the oven. If adding the cheese, you want them nice & hot so that the cheese melts before serving.
