My husband grew up eating a ketchup and mustard based sloppy Joe. I have been fiddling with it for over 20 years. Yours might just be the one I need to try.

Truthful Mommy said...

I have a confession to make. I've never had a sloppy joe. I saw a great recipe on Aarti Party and I definitely want to give it a try.

Oh, I definitely didn't hold back. I'd say 1/3 of the book is just me ranting. It's going to be a fun read :)

Sloppy Joes are looking deeeeelicious.

I was always a Manwhich-type sloppy joe girl. Last week, I decided I was going to make a homemade version on HOMEMADE hamburger buns. I found a recipe that had rave reviews, added hot dogs (which I thought might be fun for the kiddos). The buns rocked...sloppy joes, not so much. Maybe it is due to my many years eating the sweet stuff from the can, I don't know, but I decided I like sweet sloppy joes MUCH more :) Long story short, I am SO excited about this recipe!!!

Megan said...

I love sloppy joes. I must confess that I have no problem with using a can of Manwich. But it would be fun to make them from scratch too!

Jennifurla said...

Cool siggy - these are on the sweeter side, hence the name ! I hope you enjoy them :)

Rick said...

I used to eat these before soccer practice. The sweeter version is calling me.

Jess--Sugar High said...

I'm gonna be lovin me some sloppy joes, now!

Eliana said...

Awesome recipe! And I'm loving the things you're lovin :)

Truthful Mommy said...

Ok, I have these on the stove simmering. Just to let you know, they smell heavenly. SO, I couldn't resist and took a bite. OMFG! They are so good. I was never a fan of Manwich type sloppy Joe, this recipe may have made a sloppy Joe lover of me finally after 30 + years! Thanks again. My kids are going love these!!!

Clements Family said...

Sad but true...my kids have never eaten a sloppy joe!
This sounds just like the kind my mom used to make!

Jennifurla said...

Truthful Mom, wow you are wuick lady! Glad you like them - thanks for letting me know! My husband took most of them...sneaky man

Reeni said...

I haven't had a sloppy joe in so long! Me wants one! Delicious!

Evan B said...

I can't remember the last time I had a sloppy joe.. I'll tell you what I'm loving right now though.. anything pumpkin! Especially the shot of pumpkin spice I've been getting in my coffee every morning :)

I am all about cuddling too! How cute. And I loved the way you set up your photographs here...very unique and creative. This looks delicious! I could use one of those right about now!

natalia said...

Ciao Jenny ! This sandwich is spectacular !!

shaz said...

Ah, so that is a Sloppy Joe. NEver had one before. Here in Australia, a sloppy joe is something you wear (a baggy jumper) :) Pretty messy if I tried it with this one! Looks delicious.

I'm loving Spring, and imminent birthdays in the family.

Angie's Recipes said...

A delicious looking sloppy joe!

Jenn said...

Simple and delicious..what's not to love???

Cocina Savant said...

This is one fantastic sloppy joe- truly a poster child for summer. I am loving Korean BBQ at the moment.

The Comfort of Cooking said...

Three things we have in common: We use the same paper towels, we have the same tiled countertop (aren't those tiles terrible for rolling out dough?), and we both loooove sloppy joes! This looks like a delish and super-simple recipe... And now you've got me craving them at 9:55AM. Thanks a lot!

Sue said...

This recipe sounds delish!
I'm lovin' all things fall and my family!

Debbie said...

Yum, homemade Sloppy Joes! Your awesome photos make it look not so sloppy though, which is super for me :-)
