Sloppy Joes

Wow!  These were VERY tasty!  They were sweet, savory, tangy and delicious!  Our 2-year-old daughter had second helpings tonight!  Sloppy joes were a HUGE hit in my house!  These Sloppy Joes were easy to make and packed a lot of great flavor!  I can't wait for you to try them!  WE can't wait for leftovers tomorrow! :)

  1. I have recently started cooking and a coworker of mine gave me a recipe to try in the crockpot, it turned out wonderfully and I was looking for more when my other coworker Holly Davis sent me your blog!! Thanks so much for all of these delicious recipes!!! I am trying the white chicken chili tonight. :)

  2. I'm so happy you're here! Let me know how it turns out!!! It's probably one of my top 2 favorites!!!

  3. It turned out amazingly!! I even brought some to work and it was a huge hit, thanks again!!

  4. Im just wondering if not having the mustard, sausage, and vinegar would ruin the entire dish.. I'd really like to make this! I have vinegar but not the apple cider one.

    1. Yes, you need hose things for his to taste like sloppy joes. :) It would t taste right otherwise. You could sub the sausage for more beef though.
