English Muffin Pizza Joes

 English Muffin Pizza Joes
This recipe is a creation of mine that resembles the traditional sloppy joe sandwich. I like to prepare it whenever I have a crowd to serve, because the recipe can easily be doubled or tripled. My children also love these for quick after-school snacks. I often fix the sauce ahead of time so they can reheat it quickly. —Barbara Gorden, Hanover, Pennsylvania
