Hey Len, these were excellant tasting sloppy joes. My husband and I enjoyed them for lunch today. The only things I did different when making these bbq's was... I used one 10-3/4 ounce can of tomato soup which I purchased from Aldi's. I much prefer their tomato soup over Campbell's. Aldi's tomato soup is rich in color and in taste. I only added 2 tablespoons of water, plus a 1/2 teaspoon of Morton's Season-All Seasoned Salt, sprinkled in some black pepper, and added several dashes of Tabasco sauce. We topped our sloppy joes with a bit of shredded cheddar cheese. And since I only added 2 tablespoons of the water, I found I only needed to simmer the bbq's for just 25 minutes. Len, thank you for sharing this recipe with fellow Zaar members. I look forward to making these sloppy joes often, as this recipe is definitely a keeper!!
