This recipe comes from the Southern Living Homestyle Cooking Cookbook. One of many in my cookbook collection. It's super fast, and I like the sweet pickle relish, it gives it a "kick". Super yummy.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Brown ground chuck and onion in a large nonstick skillet, stirring until meat crumbles; drain.
  2. Stir in ketchup and next 5 ingredients.
  3. Bring to a boil; cover, reduce heat, and simmer 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  4. Spoon meat mixture over bottom halves of buns; top with remaining halves.

I'm not a fan of sloppy joes but the family like them. They liked the addition of the pickle relish.

This was very good. I tasted it when I was cooking and wasn't sure I liked it with pickle relish, but after it was stored and reheated I really liked it. Thanks for a great recipe.
