My daughter can't stand canned Sloppy Joes because of the onions and bell peppers in it so I came up with this plain version. Even my husband likes it.
- 1 lb ground beef
- 1 (8 ounce) can tomato soup
- 2 teaspoons ketchup
- 1 teaspoon mustard
- 6 hamburger buns
- Cook ground beef in skillet until browned.
- Pour off fat.
- Add tomato soup, ketchup and mustard and heat through.
- Serve on hamburger buns.
Made this tonight and really enjoyed it! The texture the just right- not too soupy. A tiny confession- I know this is supposed to be PLAIN sloppy joes, but I did add some dried onion flakes. Thanks for a great, SIMPLE recipe! :-)
I am the same as your daughter-HATE the canned stuff. But my husband loves it. So when we wanted sloppy joes the other night, of course it was a fight over homemade or canned. I won (HA!) and made this. He loved it and said that he'd choose this over the canned stuff anytime. My 2 year old loved it too!
The photo of this recipe that appeared on food.com's front page has been haunting me all week. I was in a total mess until I made this during the day today. Now, I feel better! This is a great, easy as peasy recipe to put on the stove-top, and snack away. I followed this exactly, except for adding some fresh tomatoes, and cooking them right along with the soup/mustard/ketchup. (*had some late summer tomatoes to use up) ~ and it tastes so good, you will want to have this on hand to use for after-school snacking. I can see serving them on toast, english muffins, or the slider rolls - or even hot dog rolls. In fact, you could serve this as a topping for hot dogs....the variations are endless. Thanks for posting such a winner, looneytunesfan! Hugs from the farm!
