An easy recipe for a quick dinner.
Sloppy Joes have been around forever. I remember eating them when I was a kid. Back then my mom made these sandwiches with Campbell’s chicken gumbo soup and a couple of other ingredients. They didn’t quite have the barbecue flavor as some recipes do, but I do like this version.
I have to admit that I have bought quite a few cans of sloppy joes sauce to use for a quick meal on the weekdays. But you know if you use some basic recipes for these sandwiches they really don’t take that much longer to make than it does to open a can of sauce.
The nice thing about making your own sauce is you know exactly what you are getting. The recipe I am sharing is really quite simple, but I love the flavor. It has a great barbecue flavor with a nice tang to it.
If you are looking for something that is quick and easy to get on the table for dinner, try this. You can make them with ground beef or try turkey if you are looking for something a bit healthier. You will have this on the table in no time.
