Lazy Man Sloppy Joe’s

Here is another regular favorite at our house.  This is one of the meals I remember my dad making on the rare occasion when he cooked.   It is quick and easy and the munchkins love it.  I also love that I generally have everything I need to make it on hand too!

Ready to give it a try?

Lazy Man Sloppy Joe’s

1. Brown hamburger (@ 1 LB I usual just take out a block I have pre-frozen from freezer)

2. 1 carrot grated (to be honest I probably do WAY more than this)

and let sizzle for about 3 minutes.

3. Add 1 -2 cans of tomatoes soup (add one if it isn’t soupy enough for you add a 2nd can)

4.  Add Ketchup and Mustard to taste (I usually put in 3 big squirts of Ketchup and a little squirt of mustard)

5. Cook until hot.

We like to eat our lazy man sloppy joe’s over Betty Crocker Biscuits.  Add a fruit and vegetable and you have a meal!
