Sloppy Joes, ah, slop-a-sloppy joes...

If you watched SNL in the '90's then you know what Adam Sandler song I sing when I make these homemade sloppy joes...

But even if you weren't up for staying up late and watching silly nonsense on TV on Saturday nights, everyone can enjoy this recipe.

2 lbs ground beef
2 C ketchup
1/2 C water
1/4 C brown sugar
1T Worcestershire sauce
1T prepared mustard
1t garlic powder
1t onion powder
1 t salt
(and i like to add in 1/4 C dried chopped onions too)
4 hamburger buns

Cook beef over medium heat until no longer pink, drain. Stir in all ingredients. Bring to a boil, them reduce heat; cover and simmer for 30-40 minutes. Serve open-face on hamburger bun. Serves 8.

Looks yummy. I love sloppy joes and have to say I was a huge Manwich fan until they got rid of the packet and only had the can and it isn't so good. For years I have been trying to find a good recipe. Maybe this is the one.
