buffalo sloppy joes

24 Oct

i had bought hamburger buns for something else i made yesterday – and figured i should use them and not let them rot in the fridge 🙂   i had ripped this recipe out earlier in the month – blue cheese, buffalo sauce – what could be bad?  this recipe was pretty quick.  i think the chopping took longer than the cooking!  i couldn’t get the sauce to thicken up as much as i wanted – even with corn starch.. i think the veggies released too much liquid — so we strained it before serving.  these came out really good – you definitely need the blue cheese!  don’t even think of making this without it!
