Sloppy Joe DiMaggio’s A La Rachael Ray

I saw her whip this up on TV not too long ago and it’s so much fun.  I make a version of this but I decided to pay hommage to Rachael straight up.   I loved it, but the kids like my turkey burger version better.  Aren’t they good boys???  Next time I’ll post my sloppy doggies version and you can decide!

Heat the extra-virgin olive oil, a turn of the pan, in a deep skillet over medium-high heat. Add meat and crumble as it browns. Add chopped hot dogs after 3 to 4 minutes then cook 3 to 4 minutes more. Add the onions to the pan and cook to soften, 5 to 6 minutes more. In a bowl mix the spices, sugar, Worcestershire and tomato sauce. Pour sauce over the meat and simmer a few minutes to combine flavors. Slop onto buns and serve.
