Sloppy Joe’s have been one of american’s favorite sandwich. It’s thought the sloppy joe orginated from a cafe’ in Iowa. Back in the 1950’s is was pretty popular to make sandwiches out of loose meat, hence the sloppy joe!
My recipe is a little different than an orginally sloppy joe recipe, because mine is gluten free, and I add beans.

I add seasonings to the sloppy joe meat such as garlic powder, onion powder, parsley, black pepper, and a little salt, it gives a nice flavor to the ground meat. Ground turkey is what I used in this recipe but you could use ground beef as well.
I first brown the meat with the seasonings.
Adding the beans to the ground meat gives this sloppy joe recipe so much more flavor. My favoite beans to use are B&M baked beans that are in a jar, but today I used what was in the pantry.
