"I used this recipe a great deal because it was so easy and good. It originally came from my grandma's 1950s recipe collection."

I made this it was so good I did not add mustard but I did brown sliced onion to put on top of bun before adding sloppy joes for those who do not like onions.

I love this it tasted like manwich but it home made from what I had in my kitchen I just had to buy the chilie sauce and the hamburger

I had a different kind of chili sauce and turned out very spicy so I have to try this over again with a different chili sauce.But other than that it was tasty!

excellent addition to the onions ,pepper, mixed in 1/4 cup fine chopped celery

Very good can't believe I used to get this stuff out of a can. Also if you don't have everything just mix like half bbq sauce and ketchup with the ground beef. Very good as well

I love this recipe.I did have to change some things to lower the sugar(diabetic). I used half chili sauce and half Heinz reduced sugar ketchup,1 tsp. Splenda brown sugar blend and1 tsp regular...

made this using ground turkey breast. added garlic powder amd pepper while cooking the turkey. turned out great!

I made this for our family reunion and received loads of raves. I did, however, omit the mustard and vinegar, but added diced roasted red peppers. Yummy!!!!!!

This was pretty good. I thought the vinegar was a bit much and will probably leave it out next time. Hubby liked it!
