Not From A Can or Store Bought Mix…Do it Your Way!

I really didn't know Sloppy Joe's didn't come from a can or a store bought mix? Then one day I had a Sloppy Joe carving and there was nowhere to be found a premixed can or packaged mix, I had not been to the grocery in a while? So, what did I do called MOM! She had the fix as usual. So we went down the grocery list and to my surprise I had the ingredients to make mom's special Sloppy Joe's, or they were special to me. I even had the buns. This should produce 4 to 6 Sloppy Joe's according to how much that is put on each bun?


  • 1lb browned hamburger

  • 1cup chopped onion (I normally cook with the hamburger)

  • 1 (10 1/2 ounce) can chicken gumbo soup

  • 1 (10 1/2 ounce) can tomato soup

  • 1cup ketchup

  • 1 tablespoon mustard

  • 1cup brown sugar

Mix all the ingredients together, brown the meat and you are off to an awesome taste treat! Thanks Mom!
