Reviews for Buffalo Sloppy Joes
"This is one of my all time favorites.. And, Being a mom of 2 young children I like to find things that are good cold... this is great cold without the bun.. may sound silly but sometimes lunch is whatever I can get.."
"This is a wonderful take on the old Sloppy joe! My kids love these!"
"Instead of ground turkey, which I don't care for, I used ground chicken. The sauce was pretty watery so I had to add a few tablespoons of flour to thicken it up. It also had a bland taste. I don't think I will make this again."
"Really good - I halved the recipe. My husband said next time I should leave out the carrots."
"I wasn't very crazy about this recipe, but my husband, on the other hand, loved it. I did cut back on the chicken broth and increase the hot sauce as others had recommended. I also added some Buffalo Wing Rub I had purchased at Spice Barn.I am willing to try them 1 more time but with ground chicken. I seem to prefer that over ground turkey."
"These are a great quick meal. Not too spicy but you still get the buffalo flavor. We use ranch instead of blue cheese to top."
"Great recipe! We double the sauce and instead of using crumbled blue cheese we use blue cheese dressing."
"Agree this could use a bit more hot sauce and the addition of chicken broth is probably not necessary. They were a bit soupy if simply heated through but I let it simmer a bit to reduce and let flavors develop. Only made half a recipe to test, but will plan to make full batches in the future!"
"My family really enjoyed this recipe and want it prepared again. Because of what I had in the fridge/pantry, I replaced a few items - used 1lb ground beef and 1/2C ketchup, and omitted the celery,vinegar, and broth. It was not soupy at all and full of flavor. Bleu cheese and hot sauce really gave it some zing and made it extra tasty. Thank you for sharing."
