On Monday night, I made my first test recipe: Reduced-Fat Sloppy Joes. I'm not at liberty to share the recipe with you, but I will share the numbers for this reduced-fat sandwich:
All nutritional information is for a single serving (including bun).
Traditional Sloppy Joe
Saturated Fat: 10g
Cook's Country Reduced-Fat Sloppy Joe
Saturated Fat: 2.5g
That's quite a difference! I'd say that the recipe was really good. Tasted very similar to my traditional sloppy joes (or tavern as we call them around here) but were more time consuming. So, if I'm planning ahead, I will make the reduced-fat version, but if I'm making tavern in a pinch, I'll just make them my traditional way and live with the extra fat.
PS. I'll let you know when the recipe comes out in the magazine.
