This is my "kid friendly" version of Sloppy Joes. Yes, you might think most Sloppy Joes are already kid-friendly, but the truth is most recipes have celery and onion, two things a lot of kids get picky about.

I've eliminated the celery entirely in this recipe and I've replaced diced onion with onion flakes. The resulting Sloppy Joes have all the nice tangy flavor without those little pieces of onion or celery that kids might pick out.

This is a Sloppy Joe recipe that is perfect for a kid's party since it will pass even the most finicky eater's "safe to eat" radar!
