One bite is all it will take to realize we've got the best Sloppy Joe recipe around. We got rid of the same old Joe taste and instead used a savory barbecue sauce, mixing in crumbled bacon, for an extra bold flavor. Because our Bacon-Barbecue Joe's are a make-ahead meal, you can easily serve them up in place of the same ol' burgers at your next backyard summer bash!

What You'll Need

  • 5 slices bacon
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 cup barbecue sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 4 hamburger buns, toasted

What to Do

  1. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, cook bacon until crisp; remove to a paper towel-lined plate. Let cool, then crumble.
     
  2. In the same skillet over medium heat, brown ground beef and onion 6 to 8 minutes or until no pink remains, breaking up clumps as it cooks; drain off any excess fat. Add crumbled bacon, barbecue sauce, salt, and pepper and cook 5 minutes, or until heated through.
     
  3. Spoon over toasted buns and serve.

Fun Fact!

There are actually two different versions of how the Sloppy Joe came to be. One story claims that it was born in an iconic club in Cuba, which is named Sloppy Joe's Bar. The second story claims that a line cook named Joe, from Sioux City, Iowa, one day decided to put some tomato sauce on his loose meat sandwich, and the rest is history. Whoever created it, we sure are glad they did!
