Nathan chose this recipe recently for dinner, and I had both kids help out in the kitchen to make it. Both of them quite enjoyed this meal too, so it is definitely a keeper and is nice and easy to prepare.
The recipe is Sloppy Dogs found in Disney's Magic Kitchen Cookbook. This book is full of simple recipes for kids to help make with great Disney Characters featured throughout.
12 ounces lean ground beef
1 8-ounce can tomato sauce
1 tablespoon dried minced onion
1/4 teaspoon dried oregano, crushed
1/4 teaspoon dried basil, crushed
8 whole grain hamburger or hot dog buns
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese (4 ounces)
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
When we made this we had a full pound of ground beef so adjusted everything else slightly to adapt for that.
Brown ground beef in a large skillet, then drain well. Add tomato sauce and herbs to the ground beef, and bring to a boil. Cover skillet, and simmer for 15 minutes. Spoon meat mixture onto buns and top with cheese. We also used marble cheese as that is what we had on hand.
