Baked Bean Sloppy Joes combines two American summertime favorites of sweet baked beans and a classic, messy sandwich of ground beef in a thick, savory sauce. This recipe also adds salty crumbled bacon for an added bonus your taste buds will love! Use this combination in between two buns or as a side dish for a Gluten Free option. Either way you can’t go wrong.
This recipe has been served in my family for years as a side dish at BBQs, potlucks and around the dinner table UNTIL someone came up with the idea of serving it as a sloppy joe!! Genious!!! This protein-packed meal will leave your family satisfied and, well… messy. You’ll want to serve the sandwiches with a fork as well.
If you need a GF option, forgo the bun and serve it as a side dish or in a bowl and scoop it up with Fritos! Hey, I didn’t say it was a healthier option 😉
