These are the best Sloppy Joes I have ever had! They are fairly easy to make and if you happen to have any leftovers they reheat very well!

I was about to post this recipe myself, but did a quick search to see if it was already out here. This is a favorite around my house!! If I'm feeling lazy, I just use tub butter -- spread it on the rolls, then sprinkle with the paprika and garlic powder.
