BBQ Sloppy Joes and BBQ Seasoned Rings

There are some days when you don't care about calorie counts or anything but comfort foods and stuff that's probably not to great for you. Well that was me tonight. My daughter is pretty sick and I didn't want to have to fuss over anything fancy or time consuming. So it was my sloppy joes and since I was craving onion rings I made those too. Oh yummy!! This really hit the spot and it allowed me more time to keep and eye on my daughter as well as the boys (who I don't want getting sick). I hope you enjoy them too!

BBQ & Cilantro Sloppy Joes

1/2 bottle traditional BBQ sauce
1 pound hamburger, cooked and drained
1 handful cilantro, chopped
1/2C shredded cheddar cheese

Once hamburger is cooked add BBQ sauce and heat through. Once heated add cilantro and cheese and stir until melted. Place on hamburger buns and you can serve as is or for extra punch and vitamins you can top it with spinach. I was the only one who did that, and it was good!!!

BBQ Spiced Onion Rings
1 yellow onion, sliced
1 C buttermilk
4 tbsp bbq spice (you can find this in the spice isle in the grocery store)
2C flour

Place sliced onions and buttermilk in plastic baggie and place in fridge for a couple of hours. This will help soften the onion rings as well as flavor them. When ready to cook, mix the flour and bbq spice together and dredge rings in that and fry until golden brown.

I didn't add any extra salt or anything to these when they came out of the oil The spice in the flour added enough, but you can also add more or less depending on your taste.

I hope you enjoy these!
