I got this recipe from a food forum member a while back and as I tend to do when I see a recipe I like the looks of, I made it. And on my recipe sheet I wrote "excellent!", so I must have liked it
From the looks of things I halved it, used homemade fries, fresh tomatoes in the mixture, left off the relish and in my notes I wrote down turbinado sugar. I guess I didn't have any brown sugar on hand. Basically it looks like any of your favorite sloppy Joe mixture will work. So here you go
