Sloppy Joe

This classic, also called Beef Barbecue or Boy Scout, is super easy to make with ingredients you already have on hand. The best part, it's better than the stuff you buy in the can.
When I was little, we ate Sloppy Joe on top of spaghetti (all covered with cheese, I lost my poor meatball....Just kidding!). I'm not sure if my mom ever bought spaghetti sauce. Though my husband prefers this served on toast, sometimes I do still make it as a spaghetti sauce for "old time sake." My friend adds a slice of American Cheese to her sandwiches.

1 lb ground beef or turkey
1/4 onion, chopped (or onion powder)
9 oz ketchup
2 tsp mustard
2 Tbl brown sugar
2 Tbl sugar
1 1/3 tsp flour
3/4 tsp salt
3/4 tsp chili powder
1/4 tsp pepper
  • Brown meat in skillet. 
  • Combine the rest of the ingredients with meat.
  • Simmer until the rest of your meal is ready.
