This was my favorite Sloppy Joes recipe growing up and its still my favorite :) Don't be thrown by the Chicken Gumbo Soup (cause it WORKS!) I'm not sure where the recipe originated - maybe the Campbell Soup Company? Prep time and servings are estimated

This is an excellent recipe although I don't think it's called sloppy joes, I know them as Gumbo Buns and I've eaten them at New Year Eve parties. I find they are quite addictive. Glad you have them posted.

I have been making these for years and they are wonderful. The only thing I do different is I only add one can of chicken gumbo soup and I use a couple squirts of yellow mustard instead of the dry mustard. Thanks for posting this...everyone should try them they are great!

So yummy. Our porter made these at a Christmas party, and I loved them so much I made them at home the next night! A very nice change from a super tomato or barbeque based joe.
