Sloppy joes are a kid friendly dish for sure. It always helps to have a few different versions in your arsenal of recipes to change things up or use what you have on hand. This recipe for simple sloppy joes uses a base of tomato sauce and ketchup along with a few spices you should have on hand. It also makes a great summer meal. Just add some salad and chips and you are ready to go.
Did you know that the sloppy joe is also known as toasted deviled hamburgers, chopped meat sandwiches, or even Spanish hamburgers. Well what ever you ay call them, they are delicious!
Start these simple sloppy joes by browning you beef in a skillet. Then drain off any excess grease. The you mix in tomato sauce, ketchup, mustard, dry minced onion, sage, chili powder, garlic powder, salt and brown sugar. Then give this all about 10 minutes to simmer together and get all those flavors to marry.
Serve this up on your favorite hamburger buns. Some times we even add a slice of cheese. This is a recipe I usually have on the ingredients for.
