When I was growing up I used to LOVE sloppy joes. Each birthday my mom and dad would ask my sister and I what kind of special meal we'd like and I would say "sloppy joes" (and cheesecake!) My favorite was sloppy joes on a toasted onion bun with french fries. I know, real healthy. I loved biting into a sloppy joe and having it slide down my hand as I'd have to clean it up with a fry. The sloppier, the better.
It had been YEARS since I had a sloppy joe, in fact I have a hard time remembering the last time I had one. That is, until I made my own! As my birthday approached in March, I knew the perfect comfort meal that would bring me back. I made homemade ketchup and sloppy joe mix made thick with handmade sausages that were crumbled and fried until golden. It was all served on a homemade bun with oil-free steak fries. It met every sloppy joe desire and made me feel like I was at home again. I made it again tonight to double check the recipe and it's a winner! My husband loves this recipe: "Delicious honey!" This recipe is a craving-buster, comforting meal that makes you feel like mom made it, filling, hearty, husband-approved and totally vegan! I hope you love it as much as I do. From my heart and kitchen to yours! Love, Christa
