Howdy Kitchen: Grilled Cheese Sloppy Jill's

It feels like it has been such a long time since I have actually made real food at my place.  

Reason #1....working a lot at the Orchard.
Reason #2....being out of town or out of state for work.
Reason #3....fighting being sick for almost 2 weeks now.  {When one is sick...food is just not enjoyable.}

Anyway, I ventured out to the Orchard to drive the hayride tractor on Sunday {after going home before driving on Saturday}.  As a tractor driver, we don't get breaks.  And the awesome people in the Feed Bunk usually bring food to us.

Yesterday, they did not disappoint.  The food I enjoyed.....a grilled cheese burger.  A grilled cheese sandwich with a hamburger patty in the middle of it.  And it was DELICIOUS!  I knew that this was going to be a food item that I had remake.


Then last night I saw this pin on Pinterest, and knew I had to make it for supper tonight.


So after venturing out to get round #2 of drugs from the pharmacy, I stopped by the grocery store on my way home.  I needed to get more beef and my favorite bbq sauce....Countryside Bar-B-Q Sauce.

Note about Countryside Bar-B-Q Sauce...
this stuff is made in Algona, IA.

But sometimes it is hard to find!
Typically I find it in Fareway.

 This sauce is more sweet than typical sauces, and I love it.
I use it solely for my sloppy Jill's, and always get compliments on them.

Sometimes, I hate to share my secret!  But, I need to help promote a local product!  :)




Anyway, I browned up 2 lbs of ground beef {saving 1 lb for making goulash later}, and got to 'grilling'.


Throw one slice of bread {buttered side down} in a pan/skillet.
Then put a good handful of cheese on there. 
{Or, just use some cheese slices.}


Place a healthy serving of the sloppy Jill meat on next.


Top it with more cheese.


Then throw on a few potato chips!  :)


Finally, top it with the other slice of butter bread....butter sided up.

Flip when the bottom side looks nicely toasted.


See all those pieces of cheese?  Yup.  I ate them.  They were crispy and yummy!


Add a few more potato chips on the side, and you have a tasty {but not to healthy} meal.


So, for not having made 'real food' {besides baking cupcakes} for a few weeks, this was a great sandwich to fix that problem.

That sandwich sounds great except for the soggy potato chips in the middle. I think I would rather have them all on the side. I will have to give this recipe a try. Hope the new meds are working!
