This Gumbo Sloppy Joes recipe has been a kid favorite for generations.  Taking a simple Sloppy Joe and adding the flavors of Louisiana home-cooking, peppers, onion, garlic, tomato and spices, is what made this recipe so popular- although 20 minutes start to finish doesn't hurt, either!  We add a spoonful of mustard, your grandmother may have added ketchup- try it both ways and see which version of Gumbo Sloppy Joes you like better!


cost per recipe: $6.91

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 medium onion, chopped (about 1/2 cup)
  • 1 can (10 3/4 ounces) Campbell’s® Condensed Chicken Gumbo Soup
  • 1 tablespoon yellow mustard
  • 6 Pepperidge Farm® Sesame Topped Hamburger Buns, toasted


  • Step 1

    Season the beef with salt and pepper.  Cook the beef and onion in a 10-inch skillet over medium-high heat until the beef is well browned, stirring often to separate meat.  Pour off any fat.

  • Step 2

    Stir the soup and mustard in the skillet and cook until the mixture is hot.  Divide the beef mixture among the buns.

    However it’s getting harder and harder to find the Chicken Gumbo. Any help finding a steady supply would be fantastic.

      We know there is a lot of love for our Oyster Stew product. We will certainly let our marketing team know that you would love to see the soup return to shelves. At this time, however, there are no plans to reintroduce that variety.

    My store manager told me that chicken gumbo is a seasonal soup that they only make for a few months, started in August. I suppose all the moms at home are making beef burgers for the kiddos at home, and it has been used up. Supply is gone for awhile.

    I am having a hard time finding the soup too. I use Chicken and Rice soup and a can of tomato sauce instead. It isn't quite as good but it works. I have been making and eating these all my life( I'm over 60) and love them. My grandmother called them spoonburgers. We also add ketchup to them.

    We have always loved this recipe. But, you can’t find the chicken gumbo soup anywhere. Do you have any suggestions for a substitute soup?
