Serve on homemade buns for a special kick of flavor or skip the bun and stuff inside a potato instead! I enjoy having a wide variety of options available, it makes the kids feel like they have more of a say in their food choices and it also allows them to “build their own” crockpot sloppy joes!
Put cheese on the top to make a gooey garnish! I like to use shredded cheddar, that way, the kids can sprinkle the cheddar cheese on top of the crock pot sloppy joes and close it with the bun.
Use slices of cheese if you aren’t in the mood for a shredded cheese mess all over your table and floor! This may be the funniest way to put cheese on a sloppy joes, but take my word for it ... It is one of the messiest foods in the world! But that is part of the fun with slow cooker sloppy joes! It’s fast, easy and oh soooo good!
Try crockpot sloppy joes with fresh green beans or grilled corn on the cob!
For a different variation, cut up red peppers into small pieces and add them to the crock pot when cooking. This is a great way to sneak veggies into the mix, and the best part is, your kids won’t even know!
