These Sloppy Joes are really great! They smelled so good cooking, also! Had some left over and DH made a Sloppy Joe Pizza (put Sloppy Joe on Pizza Shell, topped with Cheddar Cheese and Baked) which we had the next day, for lunch! Will keep this recipe handy! Easy meal and great tasting!
I gave this a try because I liked the idea of a crockpot recipe. It was okay but I have better recipes I will make instead.
These were really good. There aren't too many crock pot recipes we like but this is on the short list! I wouldn't change a thing. Only thing i would say is that it didn't make 18 servings for us...more like 9 or so. Thanks for the great recipe shinyllib
