Papa’s Sloppy Papi

Everyone loves a Sloppy Joe.

This is different than the ole’ lunchroom sandwich. This takes the traditional and allows you to completely make the sauce from scratch.
It’s so easy and SO much better than “Manwich” ever thought about being.

It’s finished off with 2 VERY important components.
1) Rouses Brioche Hamburger Buns

2) Classic American Cheese. Yes I can hear all y’all now. You just made this sauce from scratch- and now you top it with plastic?
Shhhh… trust papa.
We recently went to New England and they make everything with American cheese and it enhanced my life!!
I walked away wanting to experiment more with it- as long AS IT IS KEPT IN MODERATION.

That is the key, friends.

Now- let’s get to it.
