Pumpkin Sloppy Joes

It may have snowed here yesterday, but for most people in the Northern Hemisphere autumn is in full colourful glory!  Time to satisfy all those pumpkin cravings.  But since this calls for canned pumpkin, keep it in your back pocket any time of the year for a little something different.
  • 1/2 lb lean ground beef
  • 3 Tbsp finely chopped onion
  • 1/4 C ketchup
  • 2 Tbsp tomato juice
  • 1/4 tsp chili powder
  • dash ground cloves
  • dash ground nutmeg
  • dash pepper
  • 2/3 C canned pumpkin
  • 2 hamburger buns, split
1.  In a large skillet, cook beef and onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain.
2.  Add the ketchup, tomato juice, chili powder, and spices, mix well.  Bring to a boil.  Stir in pumpkin.  Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 15-20 minutes or until heated through.  Serve on buns.

Robyn's notes: I actually don't get that excited about pumpkin, but still enjoyed this.  It's satisfying if you feel like having sloppy joes, while being different enough to make it special.  Watch me demonstrate this recipe on youtube!

*** 3 Stars: Good. At least one of us liked this enough for me to make it again, but not often
