jr. sloppy joe's...

1 lb extra lean ground beef
minced onion
1 15 oz can tomato sauce
1/2 cup ketchup
2 tsp mustard
1/3 cup brown sugar (you can add less)
small rolls or hamburger buns

Brown ground beef and onions and drain off excess fat. Add remaining ingredients and cook over low heat about 10 min. Serve on hamburger buns.

I love to serve these on "dollar" rolls (little 1 oz rolls). Many grocery stores make their own version of these in their bakery. If not, potato rolls or hamburger buns work just fine. There is something about eating a mini version of anything that just grabs my kids (I eat less as well...) Serve these up with a little corn on the cob, watermelon, etc. This is a great recipe for a crowd, the recipe can easily be doubled, tripled, etc.

I'm afraid I'd eat 5 "little" rolls because they are so "little"!
