Party Sloppy Joes

One rare July 4th when we weren’t having our own celebration, I half-jokingly posted a “Please invite me to your party” message on FB, and got a taker! It was there at Theresa’s party that I first had this super easy main dish and she shared the recipe with me. I later brought it to a work potluck and it was a big hit.


5 pounds hamburger
small chopped onion,
1-quart tomato juice
1/3 cup dry tapioca
salt and pepper to taste

Mix all ingredients together, except tapioca, in a large roaster. With a large spoon, or using your hands, mix like you were making meatloaf!

Bake at 350 for about an hour and a half stirring every 15 minutes or so. When cooked through add the tapioca and cook until thick. Drain grease and serve. Yum!!
