Buffalo Sloppy Joes


  • Sloppy Joe Ingredients
    • 2 lb. ground beef
    • 1 large onion, chopped (1 cup) (we chose to go with the 1 cup measurement)
    • 6 stalks celery, thinly sliced (3 cups) (we just thinly sliced 6 stalks)
    • 1 can (8 oz.) tomato sauce
    • 1 can (6 oz.) tomato paste
    • ½ cup Buffalo wing sauce (we used Frank’s RedHot Buffalo Wings Sauce)
    • 1 Tbsp. cider vinegar
    • 2 tsp. chili powder
    • 18 hamburger buns, split, toasted (we needed less buns than that and we didn’t toast our buns)
  • Blue Cheese Sauce
    • 1 (8 oz.)  container sour cream
    • 2/3 cup crumbled blue cheese (we used reduced-fat blue cheese*)
    • 1 green onion, finely chopped
    • 2 tsp. Buffalo wing sauce (we used Frank’s RedHot Buffalo Wings Sauce)


  1. Take a 3 ½ to 4-quart slow cooker out and spray the inside of it with cooking spray. Take a 12-inch nonstick skillet out and set the heat to medium-high. Add the beef and onion to the skillet, breaking the meat up and stirring occasionally for 8 to 10 minutes or until the beef’s fully cooked. Drain any grease from the skillet and afterwards, add the beef and onion to the slow cooker. Excluding the buns, add the remaining sloppy joe ingredients to the slow cooker, stirring to combine everything together.
  2. Put a lid on the slow cooker and set the heat to LOW. Let the sloppy joe mixture cook for 3 to 4 hours.
  3. Take a small mixing bowl out and mix all the blue cheese sauce ingredients together in it.
  4. When preparing your sandwich, the recipe recommends using 1/3 cup of the sloppy joe mixture per sandwich**, topping it with 1 tablespoon of the blue cheese sauce**.

* Trust us, you won’t even realize it’s reduced-fat, it’s that tasty !

** We know what the recipe recommends for sloppy joe mixture and blue cheese per sandwich but that amount of sloppy joe did not get us to 18 so just put on your desired amount of sloppy joe. The blue cheese sauce tastes too good to only use 1 tablespoon so we applied more and advise doubling the sauce recipe.

Take care everybody !
