individual sloppy joe portions

i thought this was a fantastic idea!  sloppy joes are easy to make, and freezing them for individual usage is even better, especially for families!  brought to you by kitchn.com:

Sloppy Joes are fabulous for more than a few reasons (frugality and comfort being at the top of the list), but we’re partial to them because of their ability to freeze and reheat. In our kitchen, we make a full skillet of the mixture and let it cool to room temperature. Next we use a scoop to portion out individual mounds, that get placed in muffin tins (we line ours with foil liners). Cover lightly with plastic wrap and freeze (2 hours usually does the trick).

The individual portions are perfect to toss into a zip top bag for a lunch at work (the foil wrapper can peel right off). If packed in the morning, it’s thawed by lunch a quick 30 seconds in the microwave will have you warmed and ready to eat. We pack a few slices of bread or a stray bun to hold it all together and since the meat is bagged separately, there’s no soggy bread!

They’re prefect for a post-school snack or a full out dinner with additional sides, so give it a try next time you make up a batch for some quick hearty lunches!
