Prep Time:

Total Time: 35 minutes

Servings: 6


  • 1/2 cup onion, chopped
  • 1/2 cup celery, chopped
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 box
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 3/4 cup ketchup
  • 1 tbsp barbeque sauce
  • 1-2 tbsp yellow mustard
  • salt to taste
  • pepper to taste
  • 6 sandwich buns, toasted


Sauté onion and celery in oil for about 5 minutes; then add the thawed crumbles. Cook according to package directions; then add the rest of the ingredients except buns. Mix thoroughly and cook over low heat about 20 minutes or until desired consistency is reached. Serve on toasted buns.

I have seen a lot of recipes for Sloppy Joes but most of them use a prepared sauce or seasoning packet. This recipe is simple, uses stuff you have on hand and tastes great! The mixture can be eaten any time after it is heated through; however, I find that cooking for a little while blends the flavors and improves the final product. You can add a little more water if you want to cook it longer. It also freezes well and reheats beautifully.
