A recipe from the Everyday With Rachael Ray magazine. I have made it quite often and love it more every time!

These were really good Sloppy Joes. A definite difference than the package one that you add the tomato paste to. The difference to me was it wasn't as sweet. Had a delicious flavor though. I thought it was going to be to much worcestershire sauce but it really blended in so well. I really like the fact that it is done in a short time with one pan to clean. I only had hamburger buns but I think next time I would use onion rolls, I think it would give it a bit of a sweet taste that I miss. Thanks for sharing your recipe Shelby, my DD and her BF and myself really enjoyed these.

These were very good. I drained off the fat and was able to make a smaller batch. The bacon gives these a good flavor. I used red and yellow peppers and spiced it up with some hot sauce

These were really good and a little bit different than your average sloppy Joe. My family enjoyed them a lot! Thanks for sharing.
