Turn leftover hamburgers into your own homemade sloppy joes. Grating the onions helps them melt into the filling, especially good for picky eaters.

Ingredients

Directions

Heat the olive oil in a 4-quart pot over medium-low heat until shimmering, 1 to 2 minutes. Add the carrots and onions. Saute, stirring a few times, until tender, 3 to 4 minutes, being careful not to burn the onions. Add the tomatoes, meat, sugar, tomato paste, paprika, Worcestershire sauce and cinnamon. Stir in 1/2 cup of water. Increase the heat to high, and bring to a boil. Season with salt and pepper. Reduce the heat to a simmer. Cook until the meat and carrots are tender, 20 to 25 minutes,. To serve, lay the bottom of the buns onto a platter, or onto individual dishes. Spoon an even amount of filling on top, and cover with the bun tops.

Cook's Note

Substitute slider buns to make great sliders too, for kid-friendly portions.
