Family-Pleasing Sloppy Joe Sandwiches Recipe

My grandchildren love these sandwiches. I like the recipe because it can be made ahead of time and keeps well in a slow cooker. I've found that it freezes well, too. —Patricia Ringle, Edgar, Wisconsin

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds ground beef
  • 1 large onion, chopped

"My very picky husband said they were very good! My stepson took the rest with him. I followed the recipe exactly. Was worried about the allspice but don't be. They were easy to put together and had most ingredients already at the house except the buns. This is the kind of recipe I enjoy! Thanks!"

"I've been making sloppy joes for years using the recipe I received from my mother-in-law. I've been reluctant to use it since it calls for a can of tomato soup, and I've been trying to avoid corn syrup. I used ketchup that does not contain corn syrup, so I wondered if that would matter. It didn't matter. This recipe turned out excellent, and it will be the recipe I use from now on. Don't hesitate to try it. It's great."
