    I grew up in North Brunswick and Piscataway.. but I've also seen them on menus in the midwest listed as "New York Sloppy Joe"

    No, and I don't eat hamburger helper or Miracle Whip either.

    I had these tofu sloppy joe alternatives a few months ago.

    Worst meal ever. It was just plain disgusting.

    A tofu sloppy joe sounds like an abomination.

    What the hell is that? Was it invented by the Nazi's?

    Seems plausible - I'm sure tofu sloppy joes were invented by the vegetarians

    Count me in for another lover of sloppy joes. In fact, it sounds so good I may stop at the grocery store on the way home from work today and get the stuff to make them for dinner tonight!

    Ah, sloppy! I can still do this from memory - -


    1 lb. ground beef
    1 packet McKormick's Sloppy Joe mix
    6oz. can of tomato paste
    1-1/4 cups of water

    Brown the beef, add the next three items and stir. Heat to boiling, reduce heat, simme for 10 - 13 minutes.

    Turn on television, start channel surfing because dinner will be ready soon. [​IMG]

    Yummo.

    Never had one. Is the flavor like chili or something? They always looked like leftover spaghetti sauce on a hamburger bun to me.
