Sloppy joes my Mom made for the Women's Club suppers when I was in grade school. This recipe can be made ahead and reheated, it can also be doubled. Serve on crusty buns and garnish with sliced tomato, lettuce, and dill pickles, if desired.

This was very easy to get together and perfect for a quick meal. It was tangier and had more of a zing than the typical sloppy joe by using chili sauce since it is made with horseradish. I did add a few sprinkles of brown sugar to cut down on the acidity of the tomato sauce. We did not like it with the suggestion of dill pickles tomato & lettuce but it was very good with coleslaw.

2 cups of chili sauce is way too much. We put in half of that and that was still a bit on the hot side. We also substituted fresh garlic for powder. Otherwise not bad. Read More
