All-American Sloppy Joes, what a lot of us here in the states grew up on as a regular meal, basically also called a "loose meat sandwich" which sounds terrifying. It's not, really,To the uninitiated it's a dryer version of beef spaghetti sauce made to fit on a bun: ground beef, Italian seasonings, and tomato paste. Taking it one step further, it feels like a treat to kids and Hubbies (who are really just big kids) as a fancified hand-held pocket sandiwch.
Great for a normal weekend dinner, a children's sleepover, children's parties or anytime you just want to do something a little extra special without making yourself crazy!
From scratch is always best but I will tell you that the Sandra Lee version is even easier if you're short on time and patience: thawed bread dough from the supermarket, ground beef, cheese, and jarred Sloppy Joe or Manwich sauce. Nobody will know the difference and you look like a hero! But. Sometime do do the from scratch verion, you'll be glad you did and surprised at how easy it is. I promise.
