Best Sloppy Joes

Best sloppy joes (sloppy joes) are kind of a dinner you can quickly whip up and before you know it, dinner is ready. So, if you have ground beef at home and still not sure of what to make for dinner, try this out. You can any type of buns or rolls for this recipe but I prefer to use these soft buns my kids like (except for one that wont eat store bought bread), feel free to use any kind of your choice. The beef also tastes good on rice or pasta. So if you have leftover you can make use of it later not as sloppy joe but as another meal. Let’s get started!
