Hi Nancy, Great newsletter, you are a hard worker and it shows! I am in search of a sloppy joe recipe without any tomato products. We were served this at our elementary school in Salisbury, MA back in the 60's & 70's. It had a thick brown gravy for the sauce base, it was the best thing on the menu. Boys would order double lunch on sloppy joe days! Can any of our readers help? Lisa

I hope this is helpful.
I enjoy searching the internet to find untold treasures to share with others.
We had almost the samething in Waltham, MA but it was served over mashed potatoes. It was just a simple ground hamburger meat in a dark gravy. I still make it once in awhile at home. Just break up the ground meat and brown it and drain any grease from it and just add brown gravy and heat it up.
not sure how you like you sloppy joe to taste, but, my mom used to make it this way. 1 # ground beef, brown and drain off fat. 1 pkg. lipton onion soup mix add brown sugar and ketchup to your tastes. i love mine sweet. this is great.
