Editor’s Intro: Creole Sloppy Joe Sliders? Recently, I was out with my kids and the restaurant had sloppy joes on the kids menu. One of my kids ordered them. I was surprised a restaurant had sloppy joes on the menu and that one of my children ordered them. I don’t remember having them since I was maybe 4 years old. My child mowed the sloppy joe sliders down except for one. After he was done, curiosity got the best of me and I had a bite. It was pretty damn good. THEN, my friend, and guest writer at this site, Heather Walker, offered up this recipe and I told her to go for it. I think the sloppy joe is going to make a return to the menu in our house after an approximate 4 decade hiatus. Maybe for the Superbowl? Now I’ll hand it over to Heather to crush this recipe. She always does. Seriously, check out her stuff

Cajun or Creole?

In terms of seasoning, cajun and creole are pretty similar. In terms of cuisines, they differ a great deal. One of the biggest differences is that Creole cuisine uses tomatoes and Cajun usually doesn’t. Cajun is also heavily influenced by the French while Creole finds its history in the Caribbean, Latin America and Africa. Either seasoning will work here. 

How to Grill Creole Sloppy Joes

1. Heat your grill to high heat. In this case, the Primo ceramic kamado grill was used.

2. In a large, cast iron skillet, combine the ground beef, red bell pepper, scallions, cream cheese, Creole seasoning, paprika, and tomato paste

5. When the sausages are cooked through remove from the heat and chop into chunks:
