This recipe came from French's (think yellow mustard) website. I plan to make it tomorrow night but wanted to go ahead and get it into one of my cookbooks. I've been looking for a recipe for Sloppy Joes that wasn't sweet and I hope this is it.

I saw this recipe in the coupon section of the Sunday paper one week and wanted to try it. It makes a lot so I decreased it to 1 lb of meat and still have leftovers for another meal. I used ketchup because I was out of BBQ sauce; the mustard was a little too tangy for me (I am not a big fan of mustard) so I added 1 Tbs of brown sugar to sweeten it up a little. I will try with BBQ sauce and see if that offsets the mustard since it is sweeter than ketchup. These little sloppy joes were great and got a thumbs up all around! Made for Spring PAC 2013.

Great sloppy joe recipe. The barbecue sauce adds just a touch of sweetness, but not overly sweet like a lot of sloppy joe recipes. This makes a lot, so I used 1/3 of the amount and then froze the rest for future use. I made this as regular-size sloppy joes, but look forward to making the slider size in the future with some of the remainder in the freezer.
