This easy homemade sloppy joe recipe produces 4 large sandwiches and takes less than 30 minutes from start to finish.

If you use regular sized hamburger buns instead of large sesame buns you could make 5-6 sloppy joes.

To make these sloppy joes, I started by cooking some lean ground beef in a large frying pan over medium-high heat.

I crumbled the ground beef really well as it was cooking.

Once the ground beef was done cooking I drained the excess grease from the pan.

Then I reduced the heat to medium and added some mayo, Thousand Islands dressing, salt, and pepper to the pan.

I stirred all of the ingredients together and then added some diced pickles and diced onions to the pan.

I stirred well again and reduced the heat to low.

Then I opened up four hamburger buns, lay them on a baking sheet and toasted them in the oven.

If you don’t feel like turning on your oven just to toast buns, you could either toast them in a toaster oven or just warm them up in the microwave.

Once the buns were toasted I added some shredded cheddar cheese to the ground beef mixture and stirred it in.

Then I spooned the ground beef mixture onto the bottom buns and sprinkled some shredded lettuce over the beef before placing the top buns on.

    Ya know how you crave the fast food we all grew up eating? And when you break down, buy the burger, and it just doesn’t taste the way it used to? Well this recipe not only satisfies that craving of long ago childhood memories, it actually truly tastes better than the fast food version!

    I Found this recipe, by chance, a few weeks ago. It’s Super easy, super kid friendly, and over the top freaking delicious!!
    I normally tweak a recipe just a bit, so I can feel like it’s my creation. Without question, this recipe is perfect just the way it’s written.
    My family loves it! I love it! And. You. Will.Love.It.Too!!

    These were delicious! I omitted the onion, used American cheese, and only put pickles on mine. Will definitely make again!
