Homemade Sloppy Joe

DivasCanCook's picture
Homemade sloppy joes are so easy and fast to make. There really isn't a need to by the canned Manwich stuff. Serve these bad boys up on some toasted potato buns and bam! A delicious, hearty, filling dinner. I like to served sloppy joes with tater tots or bake fries with a salad or corn on the cob and of course ice cold southern sweet tea just completes the meal!
