Easy, cooks all day while I'm at work and is a kid favorite in our house. Freezer friendly.

Very tasty! Your addition of bacon to Sloppy Joes intrigued be so I had to give it a try. I followed your procedures but also sauteed the garlic in the bacon grease. This takes a bit of work to put together for a weekday meal but I would certainly make this on a weekend when I'm frying bacon. Thanks for a great new Sloppy Joe. Thanks Katandr!
