    Honeywine's Note:

    This is a semi-homade version inspired by the other sloppy joe lentil recipes here (thanks, guys!). This is for the 5-6 qt. slow cooker too. Hubby tried it and liked even though he's a carnivore. I made this one afternoon and froze half of the batch for another time. With a 6 qt. slow cooker, you can probably double the recipe easily (I ended up adding extra lentils to the recipe because I used too much water at first...ended up with 1.5lb. lentils and I still had plenty of room in my crock pot).

      Very runny - next time I would drain off the excess water before adding the sloppy joe sauce.

      This was very good for such an easy dish. I only gave it 4 stars because a homemade sauce would be more delicious, but this was very good for the amount of work. Based on other reviews, I was worried about it being runny, so I made 2 changes: 1. drain the lentils before adding sauce and 2. only use two cans of sauce per pound of lentils. That was MORE than enough sauce! I think 3 can's would have been way too liquidy. Thanks for the idea!

      We LOVE this recipe! My husband wasn't sure but after he tasted it he was hooked. I add crushed garlic, onion powder, & chipotle spices when adding sloppy joe mix to give it a bit more kick. Yum!
