Neat Sloppy Joes
October 18, 2007

My picky bunch rarely can agree on a meal, but this was one that pleased my junk food junkie 17 year old, and my not so picky hubby. My 9 year old was not so thrilled with it. I changed things up just a bit. I omitted the celery, used canned tomato sauce instead of soup and substituted real garlic for garlic powder. I used onion powder and instead of salt I used a few shakes of Lawry's seasoned salt to get the celery taste without the chunks. I also cut down on the brown sugar since the first few times it came out a little too sweet. I left out the vinegar and put in a healthy few dashes of A-1 steak sauce. I reduced the ketchup to a few tablespoons and put in a few shakes of hot sauce. Other than that, I toasted the buns and put out shredded cheddar for those who wanted it. I put a few extra dashes of hot pepper sauce in my older son's sandwich since he likes hot and spicy. It's a keeper recipe for me when I need a one dish meal.
