Once you learn how to make sloppy joes with this easy recipe, you can vary it lots of different ways. Try using a hot and spicy mustard or a honey mustard in place of the yellow mustard. Add chopped green and red peppers (brown with the onions and ground beef). Or vary the type of rolls you use. I like to use potato bread rolls, but Hawaiian rolls are nice, too.
