    We loved these and came together so quickly - great recipe as I always have these on hand and can double easily when there are more of us. Flavors are perfect together!

    i used ground venison one time and ground beef another time. My family enjoyed them, the addition of pickle relish and barbecue sauce give it a little extra flavor from your normal sloppy joe sauce. I also liked the fact that not only are they quick to make , all the ingredients are things I always have on hand.
