Easy Sloppy Joe Recipe

When I ran the school lunch business, this was a very popular dish. The kids really liked these Sloppy Joes. I really liked them as well! In my opinion this Sloppy Joe recipe tastes so much better than making Sloppy Joes with the canned sauce. These are super simple to make. Enjoy!
