Barbecue Joes


1 pound ground beef or ground turkey
1 small onion, chopped
1 cup barbecue sauce
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
4 hamburger buns, split (see Notes)


In a large skillet over medium heat, brown ground meat and onion 6 to 8 minutes; drain off any excess fat.

Add barbecue sauce and pepper; cook 3 to 4 minutes, or until heated through. Stir in cheese, spoon over buns, and serve.

Notes: If you toast the hamburger buns, they should hold up better with this hearty topper.

Serve these up with a side of our easy Baked Cheddar Fries, and you'll have a complete (and completely delicious!) meal! Just pop these in the oven first while you're getting the rest of your meal together.
