Sloppy Joe's

It seems like lately the recipes Ive been posting havent been so glamorous. What can I say, this is how we eat a lot of the time. Its just how it is with small kids around. Sloppy Joe's is a favorite from my childhood. This recipe is so easy to put together. It takes less than 30 minutes to have this dinner on the table. Plus, the left overs are great for lunch the next day.

1 lb ground beef
1 large can Bush's baked beans (any canned baked beans work fine)
1/2 cup ketchup
2 Tbsp mustard
1/2 tsp garlic powder
salt and pepper to taste
whole wheat hamburger buns

Brown the beef and pour off fat. Add the beans to the meat and mix well. Add ketchup, mustard, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Cook until hot and bubbly. Serve on hamburger buns.

We made these yesterday, and they were absolutely deeeelicious!!! We weren't sure if we would like the baked beans in them, but they added an amazing flavor to the whole concoction!

Very tasty! Sloppy joes are my go-to meal if we're in need of a trip to the groceries, but I'll be sure to use baked beans in them from now on, if we have them on hand.

Thanks for the nice comments! I just use regular yellow mustard.
