This sloppy joe seasoning recipe uses pantry staples. Mix up a batch so you can make homemade sloppy joe sandwiches when the meal plan calls for it!

Not only is this Sloppy Joe Mix recipe less expensive than purchasing a can off the supermarket shelf but you are leaving out all the additives, preservatives, and you have control over the sodium. Having a say in what your family puts in their bodies makes you feel good.

I quadrupled the recipe so I did use the majority of the Paprika but I used less than ¼ of all other spices.  This cost around $1.50 per serving including all dry ingredients and wet ingredients (see below). 

Homemade Sloppy Joe Sauce Ingredients

  • 2 Tbsp, Paprika
  • 1 Tbsp, Onion Flakes
  • 1 tsp, Chili Powder
  • 1 tsp, Dry Crushed Basil Leaves
  • 1 tsp, Dry Mustard
  • ½ tsp, Salt
  • ½ tsp, Pepper
  • ¼ tsp, Celery Salt or Seed
  • 1 tsp, Cornstarch

Homemade Sloppy Joe Sauce Ingredients

  1. Combine all ingredients and stir well.

I made mine right in the container I was going to store it in. The above measurements make one recipe, I usually quadruple it so I have enough for a month or so on hand.

To use, add:

  • ½ cup, Water
  • 1 Tbsp, Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1 cup, Ketchup
  • 1/3 cup, Seasoning Mix

Stir all ingredients in a bowl. Add directly to pan with browned ground beef. Let simmer until thickened.
