My hubby has loved sloppy joes since he was a kid in the 70s so I thought I'd make this for him. We BOTH loved this. It's by far the best sloppy joe recipe I've ever made. I did add one chopped onion to the burger when browning though, and it came out fantastic. Thanks for sharing your recipe Richard! : )
