My mom’s Sloppy Joes!
Mom's Sloppy JoesI typically break out a can of Manwich if I have a craving for Sloppy Joes, but as The Kid so eloquently puts it, “MiMi’s is better”. So, I’m leaving the canned stuff in the pantry and making it the way my mom does!

Guess what… only 3 ingredients!

1 pound ground chuck/beef
1-8oz. can Hunt’s Tomato Sauce (Basil, Garlic & Oregano variety)
2/3 cup water

1. Brown meat and drain off the fat.
2. Add Tomato Sauce and water.image3. Stir and let simmer, uncovered, for about 30 minutes.imageServe on a regular hamburger bun or slider.

That’s it! I also heated up some frozen fries for old time’s sake. Mom used to serve tater tots, but I couldn’t find a bag smaller than the family size at Wally-World yesterday, so we got seasoned curly fries. The Kid was in Sloppy Joe heaven!
This meat mixture freezes well and also makes a yummy spaghetti sauce!
