Stamped a comin’ when they hear my Sloppy Joes are on the burner! A few minor tweaks makes my recipe a real keeper! Leftovers, unlikely!
I LOVE Sloppy Joes!
They’re one of my favorite things to make for dinner.
They’re quick and easy to prepare and yummy and fun to eat.
I mean…….who can be totally serious or uptight when you’re taking a bite of a Sloppy Joe and just a bit of it squeezes out of the bun??
After a long hard day at work, this is what I’m looking for……something yummy, quick and a bit capricious.
This is my go to recipe for Classic Sloppy Joes!
They’re sweet, a little tangy, and very satisfying.
If you don’t like a Sloppy Joe that is on the ‘good and sweet side’, then this isn’t the recipe for you.
The recipe is so easy, there’s absolutely NO reason to buy a can of Sloppy Joe mix.
No reason at all EVER!
Make sure you buy fresh, good quality hamburger buns for these.
For my hubby and son, I toast the buns in a skillet with a little butter.
My daughter and I like them untoasted…… just room temperature……nice and soft!
Cheese is a nice option.
I sometimes top them with medium Cheddar.
If you add cheese, just pop them under the broiler for a minute or two to melt it.
I made these this week.
Since there were only 3 of us at home for dinner, I didn’t double the recipe.
I usually do because they make great lunches if were home the next day.
My son almost cried!
We devoured the whole skillet.
My hubby and son are BIG eaters!
There were NO leftovers.
He begged me to make them again ASAP!
So, there you have it……..these are clearly a family favorite recipe!
Honestly, I think these really are The Best Sloppy Joes!
