I used to buy store sauce for my sloppy joes, but then we started experimenting with a mix of bell peppers and onions until we found a veggie and meat mix we like. Then, we worked on the sauce until we found a combination of ingredients that we liked for the flavor. Did you spend a lot of time figuring out new ways to make your sloppy joes before you found this one?

My mom used the canned sloppy joes so I used canned sloppy joes while raising my son. I stopped eating sloppy joes about seven years ago when I decided to eat only healthy. Thank you for this recipe. I cannot wait to make this recipe.

I love sloppy joes, but I love recipes that are easy to make and don't require much cleanup even more. I'm putting this recipe on my must-try list for this month!

Sloppy joes are a family favorite. I can't wait to try this recipe for my kids. The ingredients are healthy and it looks scrumptious. We get tired of the same old canned sauce all the time, so this will be a nice change, I might add a little spice to heat up the recipe a little bit. I am always up for good recipe for my slow cooker.

I'm with you two. I don't like buying that canned sauce, with all its ingredients. This will taste great and be much healthier. I will pick up some burger this weekend and make this next week. Thanks for the easy recipe. It's nice to have something in the slow cooker on a weeknight.

I wish I had a good recipe for Sloppy Joes years ago when my kids were younger. I used to make them often, using the bought canned sauces which were full of sodium and other additives. I prefer homemade sauce recipe like this one, where you can regulate the ingredients.#BestIdeaEver.

I agree with you. I wish this had this recipe when my kids were growing up too because I hated giving them the canned one. My oldest actually got some when he went grocery shopping last week because he wanted something different and when he showed me the can I told him there has got to be something better than the can. I love that there is a homemade sauce recipe to go with it with simple enough ingredients.I also like that you can use ground turkey too. Have you tried it yet?
