This was a favorite from my childhood. It beats the storebought brand any day! It's simple and most likely you'll already have the ingredients in your pantry. It's a nice change from your traditional hamburger.

Everyone loves sloppy joes and it is a great thing to make for a quick dinner. My sauce was a little too thick to start so I added an 8 ounce can of tomato sauce and it made it thin enough to simmer a little while. Made for PAC 2011 Spring.

Very good sloppy jo mix. Easy to make and I always have the ingredients on hand! I served some over hot dogs to make sloppy dogs, which was really yummy! Thanks for posting, made for I Recommend Tag Game.

Your kids will love this! This tasted a lot like the store bought sauce, but it is made with ingredients you probably have and is so easy to make. I didn't time how long I cooked it, I just turned it off when it got to the desired consistency. Made for PAC Spring 2009.
