Sloppy Joes

The thing about sloppy joes is that they're super easy and are a great way to use up ground beef, even leftover ground beef or burgers. I grew up eating Mamwich out of a can that my mom would doctor up with a few extras. These taste a lot like I remember. Nostalgia plays a big factor in these!

Sweet and tangy and meaty and on a sandwich. What more could you want?

Sloppy Joes
1 pound ground beef
1/2 chopped onion
1 c. ketchup
1/4 c. water
2 tsp worchestershire sauce
2 tsp mustard
1/2 c. bbq sauce
1/4 c pickle relish

Cook the beef and onions in a large saucepan over medium heat until the meat is cooked and no longer pink. Stir in the rest of the ingredients and bring to a boil. Simmer until the consistency is still sloppy but not soupy.

 Serve on GF bread (I like Udi's) or buns with sliced pickles. Cheese is optional, and this is one of the rare occasions that I choose not to add it.
