Easy And Kiddos Love It – Crock Pot Sloppy Joe Meat

Well, my friends.  This recipe is messy heaven.  Your family is going to love to prepare their own sandwiches with whatever they’d like. The toppings are endless. The sloppiness is just half the fun! I wanted to try them at home with my whole family so I pulled out my trusted crock pot and made them and boy are they finger-lickin’ good! This is such a genius idea! Include all the veggies and cheese in the sandwich to switch it up and fill your family up with good food as well!

And the kids LOVE it!
