As a child, I grew up eating Sloppy Joes. Sloppy Joes were my favorite for lunch at school. Each week we use to wait for Sloppy Joes day.

I make my version of Sloppy Joes for my kiddos.

No need to buy the sauce in a jar. You will never want to eat the one out of a jar again.

My kiddos cleaned their plates with this one.

Recipe Notes

Typically when I make Sloppy Joes, I use Heinz Ketchup. But this time, I am using an Organic Unsweetened Ketchup by Primal Kitchen.

Primal Kitchen delivers condiments, dressings and marinades, avocado oil, protein bars, whey protein and more.

This Organic ketchup was perfect in my Sloppy Joes. Plus it allowed me to control the amount of sugar that I used in this recipe.
