Whether you’re a small child or a big child, the classic version of Sloppy Joe’s will NEVER lose it’s appeal. That dripping messy sandwich is literally one of my favorite childhood memories!

As a family, Friday nights were our “game night,” AND the night when we would have something a little more special. We didn’t get it very often, but when we did, we were always SO excited!

This may not be as good as my older sister’s… but it’s delicious!

As an adult I do sometimes like to be a little more “mature” about some things, so I dress up my Sloppy Joe’s with a little more dignity on a loaded nachos plate or atop a beautifully soft, buttered baked potato.

(Though I must say… both my husband and I have been known to have the messy sandwich at lunch! :D)
