There is nothing better than knowing you can make something quick your kids love that’s not from a can or bag. These Sloppy Joes are the quickest meal to whip up, short of pouring it out of a can, and is packed with flavor! I’ll even share a yummy twist I like to do sometimes (or with leftovers)!
OH MY GOODNESS!!! Why do we have to grow up??? With this dish, you don’t have to! You get all the wonderfulness of good ol’ Manwich but better! I remember loving when my mom told me we were having Sloppy Joes for dinner. Something was so fun about getting messy and scooping up the excess meat with some potato chips. Memories are made with Sloppy Joes 🙂 And I’m so excited to make more memories with my kiddos.
Brown & Drain 2lbs. ground beef
Add remaining ingredients and stir until combined. Let simmer on low for about 20 minutes.
Sloppy Joes are seriously that easy… and honestly, if you don’t want to let it simmer, don’t! They’re just as awesome as soon as everything is combined. Altogether, this took me about 30 minutes to make (I did let mine simmer because my husband wasn’t home from work yet). You could easily pull this meal together in 10 minutes.
Here’s the twist, I like to add our leftovers to my Velveeta Mac & Cheese… oh how amazing that is! I had made both Sloppy Joes and Mac & Cheese one night for dinner and my son ended up combining them and said “Mmmmm” so I figured I’d give it a try, and boy am I glad I did! So thank you Reagan for creating that wonderful food mash up 🙂

- 1/4 cup bbq sauce
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- Pinch of red pepper flakes
- Pinch of salt
- Pinch of pepper

- Buns for serving
- Brown & drain 2 pounds of ground beef.
- Return to skillet.
- Add remaining ingredients to skillet and stir until combined.
- Simmer on low for 20 minutes.
- Serve on buns with cheese.
- This recipe could easily take 10 minutes if you don't want to let it simmer (it doesn't really need it).
- In the ingredients, I use tomato paste & ketchup. You could pick one or the other, but I really love the flavor of both. With all ketchup it could get too sweet, and with all tomato paste it could have too much of a tomato flavor.
- Could make 8 servings probably but we like ours overflowing!
- I top ours with only cheese but feel free to add onions, pickles, relish, whatever you want!
- I love to toast our buns, it adds a really awesome flavor.
