Whether you’re feeding a hungry family, need a quick lunch for company, or feeding a group of always hungry teenagers. . . my Sloppy Joes are the answer! They are so fast and easy, on the table in 25 minutes or less! Sloppy Joes from a mix or a can never enter my house. These are just as easy and so much better. I’ve been making them forever.
I love homemade not just because I know what’s in them, but because I can customize it to suit different needs. If I’m making them for little kids, I will omit the crushed red pepper. If I want them a bit sweeter? I’ll add a smidge more sugar. If I want a bit more tang? I’ll add another teaspoon or two of vinegar. Spicier? More crushed pepper. You get the idea. You can add some cheese after you’ve scooped it on a roll if anyone would like that. Add a slice onion or lettuce if you want. Why not? Sloppy Joes served on small rolls make wonderful Sliders for parties.
