If you load additional meat into the bun, you can enjoy the bits that fall out of your as a dip with salty potato chips– it's practically like a sweet-and-salty nacho.

  1. An upcoming meal idea, I haven’t have one of these in ages 😁👍thank you.

  2. I make it the same way…without the green peppers. I use fresh jalapeños, without the seeds, instead.

  3. You just made my favorite food from years ago!So going to try this.Didnt realize it was so easy!Thanks Nicole!

  4. Big fan of the Sloppy Joe here-but never got my mom’s recipe. I do know she used Chili Sauce rather than ketchup.
    My kids didn’t care for it either. But
    one thing I’ve learned is that for small children who do like it, to make it easier for them to handle–I put the meat mixture in a regular hot dog bun, still sloppy but less so. And always with potato chips. I’ll give homemade a try, thanks!

  5. Potato chips is the perfect call, Nicole! Can’t have Sloppy Joe’s without them! Sure brings back memories. 😘

  6. Mom would make graham cracker pie. Crushed graham crust, vanilla pudding that she would make taste better, and meringue topping. Yummy!

  7. The school’s cafeteria in my hometown used to make sloppy Joe’s served with the best coleslaw I ever ate. It’s been 34 years since I’ve been in school but I still crave it sometimes.

  8. Hey Nicole just a trick…if you did want to remove any grease easily from the meat, use tongs with a folded paper towel and run your tongs through the meat to saturate the fat.

  9. That looks delicious! I’m going to make this sometime this week. Thanks for sharing!
    Also my favourite child hood food was pizza. My mom used to buy the Kraft kits and I would help her put the dough in the pizza pan then add the pepperoni,cheese and spices that came with the kit. Plus she would let us have Pepsi on pizza nights so that used to be very exciting for me. Can you make an awesome homemade pizza???

  10. U covered All the Sloppy Joe “rules”..!! I love it.!😋 1 of my favorites growing up & even still now..

  11. Bringing back memories. You can feed a huge amount of people. I’m going to make this tomorrow night.

  12. Fav food growing up?

    Dad did/still does an amazing smoked salmon with his own brine recipe.

    Not too salty, so you can still taste the fish, which is still tender – even the thin/tail pieces. Has a little kick at the back of the bite.

    No leather-like Jerry.


  13. The men were always the better cooks in my family. I cannot even recall my Mom’s cooking as she hated cooking and it showed. We had chunky half meatball burgers in grease gravy over (I swear my Mom invented) smashed potatoes. Elios pizza. ugh. She could put out a sloppy Joe and her macaroni salad was always good. My Dad however was a cook in the army so he cooked for crowds: Thanksgiving was his day but he made big pots of chili and vegetable soup and potato bake (with cabbage, onions and bacon in an aluminum pan on the grill). Once a month he made a pot roast and occasionally on a Sunday morning he would make pan-wide pancakes. Nostalgic food is wonderful.

  14. My mom left out the green pepper and added a can of cream of chicken soup. My husband had only had the canned sloppy joe product, but he went crazy for my mom’s recipe.

  15. Looks amazing! It’s was always a birthday request from my kiddos when they were young. I know you’re always asking for what we’d like to see you cook next… I have two sons in college, in apartments and no meal plan. Dudes are cookin for themselves. They’re bored with the same ol’stuff and are looking for affordable (ok cheap…college student budget) recipes that are easy and don’t require a lot of prep or dirty dishes. I’ve forwarded some of your videos, like sheet pan dinners, and easy chicken dishes. The only issue is they feed a family, not one person. Typically they cook for two so they have leftovers for another meal, but fridge and freezer space is limited because there are 4 guys, and I’m sure the beer gets prime real estate in the fridge 🤣 I know they can reduce the qty on the sheet pan dinners, but do you have any others up your sleeve for the lazy and poor? 😬🤣
