Reviews forJack-o'-Lantern Sloppy Joe Pie
"Fun and tasty recipe for Halloween, but could adapt to other holidays. The food coloring to make it more orange wasn't a deal breaker. Would make again without that step."
"Tasted just like a sloppy joe! Very flavorful. I made this with a turkey imprint instead of the pumpkin and did not add in the orange food color."
"wish i woulve had food coloring! :( but it was yummy!"
"Great ingredient combo!"
"What did you use for the "chili sauce"? BBQ sauce? Tabasco? I'm planning on making it for Halloween - such a cute idea."
