This has to be the best homemade joe recipe I've made or ever had and I have made many different recipes before. This is a keeper and one I will probably use all of the time. DH loved them also. Oh and I used the stove-top method of cooking them.

These were delicious sloppy Joes! I have never made sloppy Joes with sausage before but it really eenhanced the flavor of these! I think next time I will use a hot sausage to give them a little more kick. My family really enjoyed these!
