Grandma's Sloppy Joes
20 mins (prep 5, cooking 15)
12 ingredients
6-8 servings
This recipe came from my grandma--one of the few we found written down! I grew up eating these sloppy joes as a kid and now my own kids love them too. Add the oatmeal in small portions and slowly--it doesn't take a whole lot. If you choose, you can also used minced onion to taste--works well if you need to cook more quickly!
