It took a long time for me to come up with this recipe. It tastes just like the ones they made in school. Onions and green peppers, and lots of other ingredients that make this burger so special. After having this, you will never have sloppy joe from the can again, and the ingredients are things you probably have in your kitchen most of the time!!

How to Make School House Spoon Burgers

Step-by-Step

  1. In crock pot, add uncooked ground beef and cook on med heat until almost browned (still has pink here and there.)
  2. Add onions, green peppers and garlic and cook till fully browned. Drain and return to pot. I think it is much better when the onions and peppers are pureed and undrained
  3. Add tomato paste, ketsup, honey mustard, brown sugar, and molasses. mix well.
  4. Add water until the meat is almost fully covered. Reduce heat to med, cover, stirring occasionally, for about 3 hours or until all the water has evaporated.
  5. Serve on a nice soft toasted bun. Once you have these you wont be able to get enough!! Enjoy :)
