I grew up knowing these as "Sloppy Joes". When I wanted to make sloppy joes myself and bought a packet of sloppy joe seasoning, it did not taste like I remembered it! I asked my mom what I had done wrong, and she told me this was the recipe that she used for Sloppy Joes. I have not tried this yet myself, but I remember liking them as a kid.

Great flavor - Lovely Saturday Night Sloppy Joe. I cut the recipe back to one serving and used 1/4 tsp firy hot sauce and 1/4 tsp chili flakes MMmmm Hot & spicy. I did not use any MSG. Thanks for posting Sashasmomma
