Hello, sloppy joe!  Are you a sloppy joe fan?  I am fairly certain that every single person I know has had a sloppy joe at one point in their life.  If you're like me, sloppy joes are a memory from your past.  A can of sloppy joe sauce and some ground beef was all Mom needed to get dinner on the table in a flash.

Sloppy joes taste like childhood, don't they?

There was quite a long time there that sloppy joes were out of my life.  Somehow, I had simply forgotten about them and it never dawned on me to add them to our dinner rotation.

It wasn't until recently that I decided to give the good old sloppy joe a try again.  I was in the process of brainstorming what I was going make with the ground beef I had in the refrigerator (that wasn't burgers, tacos, or spaghetti) when I came across a sloppy joe recipe.

I was like, yes!  Sloppy Joes would be a welcome break from our normal ground beef meals and they could be on the table lickity split.  I was excited to bring back this classic to our dinner table because I had a hunch that not only my husband would like them, but the kids would likely go for them, too.  I was right!  Everyone was on board with this delish sloppy joe recipe.  Total win!

If you keep a stocked pantry, you probably already have everything you need to make these easy sloppy joes.  The surprise ingredient is a can of tomato soup, which might seem odd, but trust me, it works.  The soup gives the sandwiches a nice rich tomato flavor and adds to the sloppy of the sloppy joe!

If you've been stuck in a ground beef rut and are looking for even more ground beef dinner recipe inspiration, here are a few more of my favorite ground beef meals from the archives:





My family loves these sloppy joes and I hope yours will, too! If you decide to try this recipe, I'd love to know what you think in the comments below. Enjoy!
