These delicous sloppy joes are made in less than 30 minutes for a simple weeknight meal. The addition of barbeque sauce makes these a little smoky adding a new twist and tang to the standard sloppy joe. Pile this high on a bakery bun and serve alongside creamy coleslaw or pasta salad. To make these a little healthier switch out the ground beef for ground turkey or chicken. Yum!
This is one of those meals that I claimed to hate as a child. There really isn’t anything to not like about a sloppy joe so I was probably just being complicated and dramatic. I’m known to do that sometimes……
