I loaded this Sloppy Joe filling up with extra vegetables to make these a healthy and satisfying meal—suitable for both toddlers and boyfriends alike. The Heinz Chili Sauce adds a nice kick as opposed to regular ketchup, as does the addition of Italian sausage (but feel free to use whatever you have on hand). Hands down the best Sloppy Joes I’ve ever eaten!

Homemade Sloppy Joes! They are husband and toddler approved. :). These are great because they have onion and peppers and garlic in them. To make them healthier for you, omit the brown sugar (or substitute with coconut sugar), and replace sirloin with ground turkey. Also, omit the bun, or serve open faced over half the bun instead.
