Maid-Rites (Sloppy Joes)

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Karen R.

A family favorite- I ate these growing up in the 1960's. My mother called them Maid-Rites but they are a cross between a Maid-Rite and a Sloppy Joe. I've tried many similar recipes over the years but keep coming back to this one. My kids say it's the best one and I have to agree. Savory, juicy, simple and fast. What more could you ask for?

Delicious! I topped them with some Velveeta cheese which on the hot sandwich ended up nice and creamy.
