Fix and Forget Friday is brought to you today by Mindy from The Purposed Heart. All of Mindy’s recipes rock my face off, so I know you’re going to LOVE these!

We love sloppy joes at our house.  They’re such an easy and economical meal, and they also happen to be delicious!  Well, except for that time that I thought I would be sneaky and use half ground beef and half ground liver – they weren’t so delicious that time.

I know that liver is good for you and all, but I just can’t get past the taste or the smell of it.  Yuck!  If you like liver – go you!  Eat it up, because it is super nutritious and good for you. 

So besides the sneaky liver sloppy joes, I’ve never had a sloppy joe that I didn’t like.  And this recipe is no exeption!  It’s so easy to through together, and the taste is far better than any sauce that you could buy from the store.

If you have time, you should also try making some homemade buns to go with your homemade sloppy joes!  Stacy has a great recipe for homemade buns that I highly recommend – they’re awesome!  They’ll take you’re sandwiches from yum to YUM!

    That would be so nice to throw together and take to a family in need… for instance, after a baby is born, etc. Yummy!

    I was going to make meatloaf but after reading this, it’s sloppy joe night. I’m going to throw in a little liver though. I grind it up in the food processor to a paste and mix in about 1/4 cup If you start with a small amount you won’t even know it’s there, especially with all the other flavors going on.

    • Stacy

      Whew…we might not see eye to eye on the liver part. ;-)

    We’re making a double batch tonight, half to eat and half to freeze and take with us on my husband’s music tour to California. It’s that good. :)
