Simple Sloppy Joes

Recipe by Kristoljones

Title says it best, but they're also really tasty and a great comfort food. This recipe came from a friend who had my 4 year old twins and me over for dinner. It's the first time both my kiddlets asked for THIRDS. I often substitute tomato sauce for the ketchup, as I'm not a fan of so much sugar. I also often sub out the garlic powder for a crushed garlic clove, but I'm a fan of fresh garlic. Also, it's a really easy dish to make when camping.

Good but a little sweet for me. I will reduce the ketchup to 3/4 cup next time.
