Sloppy Joes

Try this recipe and you’ll no longer need a can o’ joe for supper.  These no fuss sloppy joes are made quickly with handy ingredients and a little simmer time.  I almost always double or triple the recipe for freezer convenience.

Sloppy Joes

  • 1 lb. hamburger
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 Tbsp. vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp. mustard
  • 1/2 c. ketchup
  • 1/8 tsp. pepper
  • 1 tsp. sugar
  • 1/4 tsp. salt

Brown hamburger with onion.  Drain.  Combine in skillet with remaining ingredients.  Simmer about 20 minutes.

Don’t have buns?  Try these variations.

  • Pour meat mixture in a casserole dish.  Top with biscuits.  Bake according to biscuit instructions.
  • Top tortilla chips with sloppy joe meat and cheese for nachos.
  • Combine with mac ‘n cheese for a hearty casserole.
