This family favorite has been around forever and is a classic dish that seems to be a favorite for many. With that said, I didn't try Sloppy Joes until I was probably twenty five years old while helping a friend babysit. She was making this dish for the kids. To be honest, I wasn't impressed at first and found the ketchupy, sweet sauce a little off-putting. However I did see potential in the dish and wanted to work to create a healthier version at home without all the sugar. I also wanted to add some flavor to the dish which is why I reached for the grill seasoning.
