Western Burgers (Sloppy Joe)

Here is one of my favorite recipes created by Barbara Izetta Thompson, my mother-in law shared with me years ago.

A great fast recipe that everyone can enjoy. I like to make this when we are going to the lake, picnicking or just hanging out at a softball game.

You can spice this recipe up by adding your favorite ingredients.


Coarse Mustard

Horseradish Mustard

BBQ Sauce

A-1 Steak Sauce

Fresh Chopped Jalapeno Peppers

Fresh Chopped Poblano Peppers

If serving a large crowd just double the recipe.

This is great picnic food for any outdoor events. Pop open the Ice chest grab a Western burger and your favorite beverage. Summer food at its best.
