When I saw this Hot Dog Sloppy Joes Recipe, I thought, what a cool idea. This recipe is about as basic as it gets. It is very good, but there is plenty of room for improvement. I prepared the recipe as written mainly out of curiosity. If I were to make it again I would add some garlic powder, black pepper to taste, and maybe some chopped green pepper. You could use your imagination and turn this recipe into a very good dish. My wife really enjoyed it; saying that it was good having something simple, and plain, without a lot of seasoning. She liked it a lot better than the store bought version of the Sloppy Joe Mix. I also used all beef hot dogs in this recipe which I think adds something by itself.
So if you looking for a change I am sure this is something the kids would love, or you could turn this into a great game day recipe, or maybe you’re just looking for something simple, and quick; give this Hot Dog Sloppy Joes Recipe a try. It’s simple and good. Enjoy
