Recipe: “Skillet Burgers” aka Sloppy Joe’s

This is a recipe that goes way back to my childhood. I used to go visit my cousin, Ali, just about every other day during the summer. Her mom used to make “Skillet Burgers” for us, which is really just a sloppy joe. I thought this would be a good post for my friends with kiddos. Sorry, it’s not necessarily healthy, but they’ll eat it!


  • 1 lb ground beef (I use lean)
  • 1/4-1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1/8-1/4 cup yellow mustard
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • buns

Brown the ground beef and drain the extra grease when finished. Add brown sugar and stir, then ketchup and mustard. Keep adding ketchup and mustard until it’s coated all the beef. The mustard is just there to cut the ketchup taste. Keep tasting throughout until you get it where you want it. I like mine a little sweeter, so I throw in an extra TBS of brown sugar. Serve on a bun.
