One of my favorite meals growing up was sloppy joes. My mom would brown the meat and add the can of sauce. I like to make things from scratch when I can. I feel like it is better for you without all the added preservatives and such.
I am currently on a mission to find meals that I can make quickly because of our busy schedule. I am pretty sure we will add this to our favorites. It was super easy to make and it was a hit!
We like to use Udi’s gluten free buns. Our favorite way to eat them is to toast them on the grill. They get a little crispy on the outside but warm and soft on the inside. Yummo! If you don’t do the bread, you could certainly put this on a bed of lettuce or in a leaf of lettuce to eat like a lettuce wrap.
