Recipe: DIY sloppy joe mix

I showed my DIY sloppy joe mix on instagram a few weeks back.
As promised, here's the recipe.

It's so simple, no need to buy those little packets from the grocery store again. :)

Dried mustard in a ziploc on account of impatience and this project

You'll need:

2 tbsp dried minced onions
2 tbsp paprika
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp dry mustard
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp celery seed
pinch chili powder (or more if you're brave)

Teeny salt shaker tute here.

Mix together the spices.

Brown 1 lb ground beef or turkey.  Drain any fat.  (And don't just pour it down the drain. Ahem.)

Add 1 1/2 cups ketchup, 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce, 1/2 cup water, and the mix to the browned meat.

painted spoon shown here.

Simmer for 10ish minutes and enjoy!

Nice buns. ;)

Did you see my Michelob ULTRA Light Cider review post the other day?  Check it out here.


  1. I love when you post something I should pin while linking to something I should pin!

  2. Made this for lunch today and sauteed a green pepper and onion along with the meat. Great mix and will be repeated.

  3. Made this and added a green pepper and onion to the ground beef. Great mix and will be made again!


Thanks for visiting!
