"Loved the flavor of this. I left out the rosemary, added some Italian seasoning as well as the garlic, oregano and onion powder. I used a good portion of fresh basil instead of dried. My family ate it giving great compliments. This is a keeper: the best sloppy joe recipe I've come across."

"Not too bad and easy to make. I agree that the seasonings gave them a strong taste. I would probably cut back on the rosemary."

"I made these open face style and lightly broiled them. They were a hit with my husband and I as well as our young children. Will make again and again."

"This was quick and simple to make. This did have a strong flavor due to the all of the seasonings, kind of unexpected for a sloppy joe. There is a similar recipe out there, with a bit less seasoning, that I might try next time instead of this one."

"I made these for dinner last night and my husband and son loved them! I followed the recipe exactly as written, except I toasted the buns underneath the broiler for a few minutes before putting the sauce and cheese on the buns. Next time I am going to toast the buns; add a slice of cheese to the top and bottom buns; melt that under the broiler for a few minutes before adding the sauce. Very, very good."
