I’ll be honest, when I think about sloppy joes, there are a few thoughts that come to mind.
1. Chris Farley as a lunch lady. Ever seen that sketch? Look it up.
2. Real life lunch ladies serving sub-par tasteless joes on dried out, smooshed buns in my elementary school cafeteria.
Well, if those are joes, meet Joseph, my friends.
With a homemade sauce, lean meat, and more flavor, these are decidedly better than a can of sloppy joe mix and are certainly kid-friendly.
The recipe calls for several ingredients, but none are hard to find and I had most of them on hand. This won’t win you any beauty contests, but it might just save dinner.Print
