I've been eating these my whole life! We do add brown sugar to this recipe. My kids like to eat theirs with ripple potato chips in the sandwich, which adds salt and crunch. It's good, I've tried it!
This is absolutely my husband's favorite sloppy joe recipe. He always asks for it. Sometimes I add dijon mustard if I have it on hand, but regular mustard suits him just fine. I also sometimes add chopped onions if I'm in the mood to chop them. We love this with potato chips and dill pickles.
I have been using this recipe for quite a few years but do not use the mustard. Instead try it with sweet pickle relish (add to taste) or if you have picky eaters like I do just use the juice from a jar of sweet pickles or even (my wife likes this) dill pickles.
