Are you looking for an easy Slow Cooker Sloppy Joes recipe? Sometimes there isn’t anything better than spending time with family and enjoying some comfort food that you can make in your crockpot!
When I was a kid I remember that I enjoyed sloppy joes. It was a food that was good and if you dropped some on your shirt or had some left on your face it was okay, it was from a sloppy joe and it was okay to get messy. Things haven’t changed, I still love my sloppy joes!
I will admit that most time that I make sloppy joes, the sauce comes from a can. This is one of the foods that I consider “easy” meals and something that I don’t put that much time into making. Since I do love to cook from scratch and am always looking for a reason to use my slow cooker, I decided to make sloppy joes in it!

Have you tried this recipe with turkey burger? I wonder if it would still taste yummy?
