Sloppy Joes are as comforting as chicken soup.  Something about the classic flavor evokes childhood memories & a comfort that is hard to find in many foods.  This is a great meal for a crisp fall night.  It doesn't take long to prepare & is a kid-friendly meal served on these Italian Sandwich Rolls.  Pair this sandwich with a big dill pickle & a side salad or try it with these Sweet Potato Wedges & it's all you need for a good night!
