What's for Dinner: Sloppy Joseph

You just have to serve something sloppy on Halloween! Make these sandwiches for your trick-or-treaters, then follow them up with some Spooky Spiced Cider and Compost Cookies -- you'll find recipes in the Serve With links below.

Servings: 6


  • 1 1/2 pounds lean ground beef
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup chopped green bell pepper
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 (10-ounce) can tomato soup
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1 teaspoon poultry seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 6 hamburger buns


In a large skillet over medium-high heat, brown the ground beef with the onion and green pepper in the oil.

Add the remaining ingredients, bring to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer for 15 minutes. Serve on hamburger buns.

Notes: You can easily double or triple the recipe to make ahead and serve to a crowd. Keep warm in your slow-cooker for buffet service.
