Sloppy Joes for a Crowd Recipe

Publisher Photo
My mother-in-law created this recipe in the early 1950s. She prepared it many, many times before she was happy with the end result. Our family likes these satisfying sandwiches served with pickles and potato chips. -Sharon McKee, Denton, Texas

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 20, 2008

"With all of the good ratings, I was very surprised to find I did not care for these. With the tomatoes and spices, it had more of an Italian sauce feel than I prefer for my sloppy joes."
