Food Nanny Sloppy Joes

This sloppy joes recipe is great! The sloppy joe meat ends up tasting a little like bbq beef, which I think is fantastic. We had the meat on homemade wheat rolls with Spaghetti Pasta Salad and corn on the cob. It was a hit with everyone and a great summer meal. You can serve this open face with a slice of cheddar cheese over each half of sandwich, then place under the broiler until cheese is melted. Yum.
