Philly Cheesesteak Sloppy Joe Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

August 22, 2019 in Food, Recipe, Recipes - No Comments

I absolutely love a good Philly. Whether it’s Philly Cheesesteak fries (the best ones I’ve found are at a little deli here in town), or the classic sandwich on a big hoagie roll, I can always be in the mood for one. It’s the perfect food… from the deliciously seasoned meat, the sauteed peppers and onions, and the gooey melty cheese. I decided to mix things up and make a Philly Cheesesteak Sloppy Joe, and then I stuffed a huge baked sweet potato with some of the mixture. The result was a really simple but flavorful dinner than my entire family enjoyed. I think yours will too!


  • 2 TBSP Unsalted Butter
  • 1 lb Ground Beef (or meat of choice)
  • 1 Whole Yellow Onion, diced
  • 1-2 Green Bell Peppers, diced
  • 1/2 C Beef Broth
  • 3-4 TBSP Worcestershire Sauce
  • 2-3 TBSP Cornstarch
  • Salt, Pepper, Onion Powder, Garlic Powder, to taste
  • 4-5 Large Sweet Potatoes (one for each member of your family, so adjust as needed)
  • 8-10 Slices Provolone (Less if you want it less gooey)


  1. Preheat your oven to 425
  2. Scrub your sweet potatoes clean, and pat dry.
  3. Spray or Rub them with a little bit of cooking oil, poke a few holes into them with a fork, and salt, then wrap tightly in foil.
  4. Bake your sweet potatoes at 425 for 50-60 minutes depending on size. They’re done when you’re able to easily pierce them with a fork.
  5. Brown your ground beef over medium heat until no longer pink, removed from skillet and set aside.
  6. Add butter to pan. Once it’s melted, add in your diced vegetables and saute them for 6-7 minutes or until the onions are translucent and the peppers are nearly cooked through with a little crunch left. (This would be a good time to also add your mushrooms should you want to add those).
  7. Reduce your heat to low and return ground beef to the skillet, add all of your seasonings to taste and then add your Worcestershire sauce and beef broth. Combine well.
  8. Then, add your corn starch and stir until it’s dissolved. The corn starch will thicken the beef broth up a little bit to create a really yummy sauce. If your beef looks too dry, you can add 1-2 tbsp more of beef broth (or water). Scrape the bottom of your pan during this process to combine all ingredients thoroughly.
  9. Keeping heat on low, cover your mixture with the provolone slices. I like to use enough to completely cover the mixture and the skillet, but you can use less to lighten it up. Cover for a few minutes until the cheese gets gooey and melts into the mixture.
  10. Once your potatoes are finished, slice them open and scoop some mixture into it. Serve hot!

You can also use this mixture on top of buttered buns or hoagie rolls!

  • Garlic Parmesan Chicken Tenders over Cavatappi Pasta in Vodka Sauce—RECREATE THIS DECADENT MEAL IN LESS THAN 30 MINUTES! 
Y’all know that I love things that are quick, easy, and flavorful in the kitchen. And this one took less than 30 minutes start to finish! I dare say maybe even less than 20. 👀⠀
I’ve been making chicken (I’ve tried tender, breasts, and thighs) this way for about a week or two now and it’s so incredibly flavorful and juicy! ⠀
This meal looks and tastes super decadent, with very minimal effort. ⠀
The @weberseasonings Garlic Parmesan seasoning that I mention and use here is a new favorite, I’ve been putting it on everything—but of course you can change up the seasonings and even the sauces to cater to your family’s tastebuds. 
I bet this would be really good with some fettuccine and alfredo sauce; I may try that next!
Get you a Valentine who looks at you the way that Grayson looks at ice cream in the ➡️➡️s w i p e 😂😂😂
  • These didn’t photograph as well as I wanted, but they were insanely delicious. 
Baja Chicken and QUESO stuffed Bell Peppers. 🤤🤤 I cooked two chicken breasts in a little bit of chicken broth in the crockpot—seasoned with @goyafoods Adobo Seasoning, onion and garlic powder, chili powder, and pepper. High for 3/4 or low for 6. 
Then I began by caramelizing some onions in my pan, added a bit (a lot) of minced garlic and sautéed until fragrant. I added a can of tri bean blend (this was kidney, black, and pinto beans but you can use your fave) and a can of corn drained and rinsed into the pan. Seasoned all with onion and garlic powder, as well as salt and pepper. I added my shredded chicken and a jar of my favorite Queso to these. 
After cutting the tops off and cleaning the seeds out from inside my peppers, I spooned this mixture into each and sprinkled with cotija cheese. 
Bake them at 350 for 30-45 minutes or until the cheese on top is brown and bubbling. *You can boil your peppers prior to this so they’re soft and not super chewy. 
I served them over Mexican Rice (also from Goya). These will be on the blog soon. But I wanted to share it since it was super yummy. ■ ■

  • Perfect Saturday Family Lunch. 
We tried out @baddaddysburger for the first time today and it did *not* disappoint. Jacob got the Bad Ass Burger, which is a 10oz beef patty with buttermilk fried bacon on top. It comes with horseradish mayo, but he subbed for original. 
And I got the create your own (giant) salad—with chopped romaine, red onions, hard boiled eggs, black olives, grapes, shredded cheese, croutons and fried chicken tenders; with ranch on the side. Seriously delicious. 
Their fried pickles were noteworthy—coated in a seasoned batter and super tasty. Our server told us that the fried deviled eggs were really popular as well, so that’s on my to try list. 
We didn’t try their milkshakes or banana pudding today because we were just so full, but I can’t wait to go back.

  • My photo dump rambling of a weekend recap is live on the blog. I had so much fun with these ladies, and I swear I’ll stop talking about it eventually. 😂 
Shout outs to every single place we went that accommodated such a large group of loud women, all with cameras out. 
@noelle_nashville / @makeready_nashville provided us with THE most delicious dinner Friday night, where this photo was taken. (I think that I may take Jacob there for Valentine’s Day). 📸: @ellie_kayphotography

  • Wow. FIVE YEARS.⠀
While we’ve been together for much longer, marriage is so much different. And I definitely think that getting to the five year mark is a feat in itself. ⠀
Today on the blog—I’m sharing a few, five to be exact, of the lessons I’ve learned over the course of the last five years. (Click the Link in my Bio to read). ⠀
Being married to someone and in their space almost constantly, you learn a lot about a person...and I honestly feel like I picked one of the best. He’s my best friend and he is always in my corner. He supports me unconditionally, even if I’m not believing in myself. ⠀
Spoiler Alert: It isn’t always Sunshine and Rainbows, but Marriage isn’t supposed to suck. ⠀
If I could give one quick piece of advice it would be this: Marry someone who just gets you. Someone who sets your soul on fire. ⠀
I’ve said this many times, but I knew almost instantly that I was going to marry my husband. ⠀
What is the best piece of marriage/relationship advice you’ve ever received, and what is the worst? ⠀
