Sloppy Joes

Lexi's Clean Kitchen

I have this thing with sloppy joes. I’ve always just LOVED them. It’s a unique take on flavor, plus it’s messy. When the bread gets soggy from the sauce… perfection!

This is some seriously delicious comfort food, and a family favorite! Serve them on top of my paleo rolls for a deliciously satisfying meal.

I love how easily these come together! Just twenty minutes, one-pan and BOOM. Comfort food perfection.

I love topping these with jalapeños, roughly chopped lettuce, sliced red onion and tomatoes but these are delicious all on their own as well!
