Easy Sloppy Joes

My darling middle child loves sloppy joes. She’s just a tiny little thing, she’s not a big eater, but there are some meals she loves. Sloppy joes are one of them. The other night she requested them, and Momma forgot to make them. Not to worry though, I got it covered, I made them and she just loved them.

All you need is ground beef, and three other ingredients make up this easy recipe. You know, beside the buns of course.

  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1/4 cup mustard
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 a medium onion, diced (optional)

How to make these Easy Sloppy Joes:

Grab your large skillet and get to work. I also used onion, but I add onion to my ground beef whenever I brown ground beef.

Once you have browned your ground beef thoroughly, add the three ingredients – ketchup, mustard, and brown sugar – and mix well.

The beauty of sloppy joes is that you can pair it with almost anything. It is like a BBQ food, goes with everything. We often do home fries – regular potatoes or sweet potatoes, and fresh veggies like carrots or cucumbers. But it also is perfect with salad of any kind on the side.

Sloppy joes are a fun food to make for your family.
