It’s hard to beat these Easy Sloppy Joes for a fast, satisfying meal—or snack, if you make them into sliders—because the recipe comes together in just 20 minutes with a few pantry staples you probably already have on hand. Tomato soup is transformed into a thick, tangy sauce with just a hint of sweetness thanks to the addition of brown sugar, plus garlic powder, mustard, and Worcestershire sauce. Add ground beef, pile it high on soft white rolls, and you’ve got a hearty, filling sandwich everyone will enjoy.


cost per recipe: $7.42

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 can (10 3/4 ounces) Campbell’s® Condensed Tomato Soup
  • 2 tablespoons packed brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 6 Pepperidge Farm® Sesame Topped Hamburger Buns or 1 package Pepperidge Farm® Slider Buns (12 buns)


  • Step 1

    Season the beef with salt and pepper.  Cook the beef in a 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat until well browned, stirring often to separate meat. Pour off any fat.

  • Step 2

    Stir in the soup, brown sugar, Worcestershire, mustard and garlic powder and cook for 5 minutes. Season to taste.  Serve the beef mixture on the buns.

    This is a family favorite. I cut the soup to 3/4 a can and add a teaspoon of worcheshire sauce. You can also add minced onion and green peppers and it is delicious. This is a great party recipe because it's easy to make a large quantity and very tasty!! It is also a great leftover food.

    Make the same recipe as above, just add 1/2 tsp of Brown Sugar...3/4 tsp of wht Vinegar...and 1/4 C of fine diced wht or yellow onions.

    Note: Cook the Ground Beef, drain the oil and Saute the onions for about 2-3 minutes with the Ground Beef.

    Once Grd Beef & Onions are done add all the other ingredients...Simmer for 15 minutes...Serve.

    This is the recipe my mother got from her mother. This is what we love.

    If you do not like onions, don't add any... Or replace diced onions with a tsp of granulated Onion powder...and don't tell anyone.

    I remember my Aunt making Sloppy Burgers. But I didn't remember adding the catsup or how much mustard. This is a change from the Regular Sloppy Joes.
    Haven't made it since the twins were in Grade School, just a few yrs ago, LOL
