Gram's Sloppy Joe Skillet Supper

Over on my families recipe blog we are trying to gather and share as many recipes from our Grandmother as we can. She is passed on and raised her 6 children during and just after the depression. It certainly had a lifelong impact on her cooking. She could whip up a dinner for any crowd stopping in, in no time and seemingly out of nothing!



Our cooking styles may have changed over the years, but documenting family recipes as well as just good old fashioned meals with good basic comforting ingredients really never goes out of style.

Here is one from my grandmothers files and is a perfect way to use those leftover mashed potatoes from a Sunday Meal.
