Sloppy Joes for a Crowd

This is a great recipe for a church supper or when you need to serve a lot of people.  I made a half recipe for 6 people and I didn’t have a lot left.  I think that tells you they were pretty good.

  • 7 pounds lean ground beef
  • 1 1/2 cups finely chopped onion
  • 1 1/2 cups finely chopped celery
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons prepared mustard
  • 6 cups tomato sauce
  • 1/2 cup white vinegar
  • 2 to 3 teaspoons minced garlic
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 1/2 cups (6-oz.) shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • Hamburger buns

In a large skillet, brown beef, onion and celery.  Cook in batches, if necessary.  Drain any fat.  Add all remaining ingredients except last two; cook 10 minutes.

Stir in cheese; cook until melted.  Serve on buns.

Yield:  50 sandwiches
