How To Make Manwich Sloppy Joe Bombs

If you’ve looked at the picture of this easy sloppy joe, I’m sure it made your mouth water just a little bit. If not, you may just be crazy!

Get excited for the savory crunch on the outside and the sloppy deliciousness on the inside. The whole family will go crazy. 

The number of sloppy joes you end up with will be determined by how big you decided to roll them. You can make a few batches if you have a larger family to feed. 

One of the things I like most about this recipe is that you are able to modify it to your liking. Maybe you really like cheese so you add a bit of mozzarella cheese. 

I love being able to take liberties with recipes. If you do change something, you will definitely want to document it so you remember for next time. 

That is where a Recipe Card will come in handy. Add some information to the notes section so your recipe will get better every time.

If you do not believe me, just give the recipe a try. Once you take a bite, you will realize what you have been missing out on. 

Maybe you have never had a sloppy joe before. I promise it is not quite as messy as it sounds, but you are truly missing out. 

This is the perfect way to introduce yourself to sloppy joes. This recipe will top any other sloppy joe recipe you may find. 

You will not need to worry about getting hamburger buns for this homemade sloppy joe either.

You will however need some ground beef and a few stomachs ready to feast. And a little over 20 minutes of cook time.

I use to like using toasted buns for my sloppy joes, but this air fryer version is so much better.

The air fryer is such an important appliance to have in your home. Recipes like this would not be the same without it. 

If you are still not sold, let me give you this little piece of information. This will taste just as good if you eat it for leftovers. 

There are a lot of recipes and dishes that just do not taste good once they have to reheat it, this is not one of them. 

The way to reheat it is super simple and will leave you with a delicious taste in your mouth. 

Did you know that the name “sloppy joe” originated from the cook named joe who made it?

I’m just joking. I have no idea where it came from, but it sounded believable, didn’t it?

Now you can enjoy them the night you make them, and even on the next day. With a big family, having leftovers sure is easier than cooking a new meal each night. 

There are a lot of things you can add that might make the recipe better for you. Maybe you want to add chili powder, red pepper flakes, or bbq sauce.

It is all up to you!

Air Fryer recipes do not stop at sloppy joes, there are so many other options as well. Check out some of my favorites: Popeyes Chicken Tenders in The Air Fryer, How To Make Roasted Garlic In The Air Fryer, and Copycat Red Lobster Cheddar Bay Biscuits In The Air Fryer
