We all love eating as much as we love camping and catching up with friends. What isn’t so much fun might be cooking and cleaning up from feeding everyone. That’s when a crockpot filled with good old sloppy joes comes in handy.
We’ve all grown up with this favorite. You can make it with browned burger, pre-canned sauce, slather it on a burger bun and add a side of chips. Every camper from young to old will eat this favorite and then you only have one pot to clean up afterward.
If you want to make your own you can brown the burger along with some chopped onion and green bell pepper. Then add a mix of ketchup, a smidge of mustard and some brown sugar. Salt it to taste and let it simmer for as long as you need.
Some people like to spice theirs up with a little garlic or even add some jalapeno. It’s really up to you and guided by the likes of your family. We know you want to spend as much time as possible enjoying each other when you’re camping so we like to help get you in and out of the kitchen in a hurry.
In fact, we’d suggest you make a double batch of this when you’re cooking dinner because it can be quickly warmed up for lunch in a day or two and how easy it that? Another suggestions we’d make is that you might consider cooking the whole double batch at home and freezing it in two separate containers. These frozen containers can serve double duty by helping to keep others foods cold in your cooler and then you can thaw them on the day you plan to eat them. Pretty smart.
We look forward to seeing you at the campground this summer and hope it’s your best summer of all.
