Sloppy Junk

My mom used to make this variation of sloppy joes, which our family preferred. It is not for the health conscious, but it is very good. It can be eaten on bread as sandwiches, or served over rice. Top with sour cream or French onion dip. The French onion dip is good if you want a little more zip to it. It is actually even better the second day.

Great recipe for the leftover stuff. It tastes just like it sounds it would. If you like food that goes a long way "cost wise", this is it.

The kids really liked this. It's almost like a version we already did, but we normally add 1/2 can of water or milk, a splash of soy sauce and mix it in with some noodles. I will cut down on the bacon and add a splash of milk next time I make this, as some other reviewers suggested. We also use a similar recipe to this but we top it with frozen tater tots and shredded cheese and bake it in the oven at 350 for 35 min. Oh the things one can do with ground meat and cream of mushroom soup. YUM

My family really liked this recipe. I think that 1 lb of bacon is too much though and will cut it back a little next time. It made it too salty. I also had to add just a dribble of milk to thin it down a little. Otherwise it was very good with enough left for lunch the next day. I will make it again.
