  This classic Sloppy Joe's recipe is great for a crowd; kids love these little buggers (I mean, the name alone!) and left-overs freeze wonderfully!
  1 lb.   ground turkey or beef
  1 large   onion, chopped
  2 T.   vinegar
  2 T.   Worcestershire sauce
  2 T.   sugar
  1 tsp.   paprika
  1 tsp.   chili powder
  1 1/2 c.   ketchup
  2 tsp.   molasses, optional
    water, as needed
  8   hamburger buns
  1 (8 oz.) pkg.   sliced cheese
  Brown meats with onion. Add vinegar, Worchestershire, sugar, spices and ketchup. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to simmer. Cook on simmer for 20 minutes before serving. You may need to add water, depending on your desired consistency. Serve on a bun with a cheese slice.

This recipe converts extremely well to a crock pot or slow cooker. Simply put all the ingredients in the crock pot in the morning (you donít even need to cook the meatójust be sure to mash and mix it all up a bit), and it will be ready for you when you get home. Give it a stir and sit down to eat.
