Making these from scratch was just as easy as popping open a can, but they have more nutrition from using fresh ingredients (and the more fresh veggies I can sneak into dinnertime, the better!).

    Oh, this looks delicious! I think I'll make this tomorrow night- after I hit the corn stand! Thanks for sharing! Lori

  2. We make a sloppy joe recipe pretty similar to this, but we don’t use Worcestershire sauce. That sounds delicious, and like it would add a lot more flavor! We’ll have to try that next time!
