Sweet Sloppy Joes

Kelli Thomas


This is my Mother's sloppy joe recipe that I grew up with as a kid. I'm not sure where she got it from, but this is by far my family's favorite sloppy joe. There is a hint of brown sugar that makes them sweet and delicious! This is a great quick and easy meal when I have one that needs to go to swim and another that needs to go to dance. :)
