Family Recipe Friday - Mom's Sloppy Joe's

For today's Family Recipe Friday post, I am sharing my mom's recipes for Sloppy Joes.  I will always remember my mom cooking supper in the kitchen, waiting for the hour when my dad would walk through the door.  I was lucky enough to grow up in a house where we were able to sit down at the dinner table together just about every night.  To this day, whenever my brothers and I need some comfort food these sloppy joes are what we ask for!
*Please note: June Cleaver had nothing on my mom! She always looked this great when she was cooking dinner!

Mom's Sloppy Joes

2 lbs. Hamburger
2 cans Chicken Gumbo Soup
2 T.  Catsup
1 T. Mustard

1. Brown Hamburger
2. Add soup, onion, catsup, mustard, and simmer for at least 20 minutes.


  1. I am going to try this Lori. I never heard of adding chicken gumbo soup. Is it still made??? My sloppy joe recipe comes from Manwich.....lol

  2. Just found this entry. Yea! Another family that makes Sloppy Joe's with Chicken Gumbo. This is the best and so easy. I still make them this way today for my family.
