    fishlessman,[p]Man, that's one nice (appetizing) picture. Looks like something right out of Bon Appetite! [p]Now PLEASE stop posting pictures like this until after 9:00 am. I'm trying to keep my girth in check (AND YOU'RE NOT HELPING)![p]Have a great Day!

  • fishlessman,
    we had sloppy joes as well last night. ...always a good comfort food....didn't do mine on the egg, but i did add a nice shake of 'raising the steaks' rub to mine when it was plated ....yummy, raised em up a notch!! . .and like you, i always eat them open faced, but in a left over acknowledgement to eating them in elementary school, i top mine with a gold old kraft's american single :-)

    mad max beyond eggdome,
    something i find funny about leaving new england is that orange cheese, now we do have velveeta, and mcdonalds, but other than that, orange cheese is not on the list. recently out in new mexico getting the weeks food for a fishing trip i was sent to the cheese isle for some chedder. big section of orange cheese. i came back to the group and told them, they dont have cheese here. after they checked, we didnt buy any for sandwiches or for the burgers. when you say gold, are you saying orange cheese, just curious

    fishlessman,

  • fishlessman,
    whoops, typo...i meant GOOD old american cheese. .not 'gold' . .but not even chedder, just plain american cheese. ...good melt factor when you lay it over the hot sloppy joe mix. . .[p]now, all we need is some of lawn ranger's tater tots and we'll have a really traditional elem. school lunch :)[p](we had ore-ida hash browns last night with our sloppy joes, almost as good as tater tots). ..hee

    fishlessman,
    Man, that looks good. Never had parmesan cheese on joes but I bet it adds to the "yummmm" factor. Your pic would make a nice screen saver, he he. [p]Been awhile since I made joes on the egg, I think I used 8 lbs. of chuck for a birthday party.
    Have a great day,
    Clay

    RRP,
    we have colby, never seen long horn. i was just talking cheese in general. from american to mild to sharp chedder its all white. you can ask at the counter for orange american, but you have to specifically ask for orange or you will get white. in new mexico the store i was in didnt have any white cheese, even the chedder or the singles or anything

  • stike,
    yep. .. and its good!!! .... i do a pretty traditional one. ..make up a roux/bechamel sauce, add macaroni, mix in a big helping of grated cheese (like to blend things like a good chedder/gruyer(Sp), etc), then top with italian bread crumbs and bake in the egg for about an hour indirect at 350 degrees. . . .careful with smoke though, you want a pretty clean fire as all that cheese will absorb a lot of smoke .. .

    mad max beyond eggdome,
    nice with a hint of smoke though, right?[p]by the way. i don't know what you mean about 'traditional'. traditional mac-n-cheese in our house, ca. 1972, was melted velveeta and milk poured into a round mixing bowl with elbow macaroni, tomato wedges on top, then baked in the oven till runny and gooey with some crisp stuff on top. sometimes breadcrumbs on it too.[p]hahahaha
    good stuff, though, as a 6 year old kid. come to think of it, i wouldn't turn it down if good ol' ma made some again...

    EggNerd,
    We made sloppy joes a couple of months ago. No sauce-- just loose hamburger meat--drained w/ lots of pepper and some dizzy dust. Topped w/ jalapeno pickles. Tasted similar to ones I ate 25 years ago in Iowa--- at diners called Maid-Rite.

  • mad max beyond eggdome,
    ....and then we can put green peas on the flat end of our forks, and slam our fist down on the tongs end, sending them flying across the room! Ahh the memories!

    stike,
    Man I just did the math and if you were 6 in 1972 that means I just graduated from college the year you were born...thanks for the age difference reminder, bud!

  • Dublin Dawg,
    ahhh, don't get me started. ..pinching the edges around 3 sides of an ice cream sandwich, then slamming it down with a fist and watching the wedge of ice cream fly across the room ....or dipping straw tips in mustard, shooting them straight up in the air so they'd stick to the ceiling tiles, only to have them fall on the kids sitting in the same seats during 2nd lunch. ...taking tater tots and smashing them into someones math book on the page that they'd have to turn to in the next period. ...[p]you know, if you couldn't eat it, you might as well have fun with it :-)
