    Very Good
    Wonderful recipe. My family enjoyed these. Even I liked these, and I've never been a fan of sloppy joes. I put the onion in a food processor to hide the fact they were in the recipe for my non onion eaters in the family. Came out great. - 1/30/17

    I made these tonight and they were fantastic. My family loved them. 4 stars because it had a little too much onion for my taste. - 3/16/16

    I've tried many sloppy joes recipes which were OK, I LOVED this one!! I used buffalo burger. I also added a mixture of chili sauce, Cookies Bque, and ketchup in the 2/3 cup. I usually like adding Busch's Baked Beans but didn't have any at the time. Will try adding next but this is Great as is. - 10/3/12
