If you like Sloppy Joes, try with a little added touch of bacon.

1 lb Ground Beef
1 lb bacon
1/4 C butter
1 medium onion, chopped
2 or 3 8 oz cans tomato sauce
1/2 tsp pepper
1 lb shredded cheddar cheese
8 hamburger buns

 >> In a large skillet, cook bacon; drain reserving fat. Crumble bacon and set aside. Leaving enough bacon grease in the pan to coat the pan, saute the chopped onion until transparent. Add 2 cans tomato sauce and pepper, simmer uncovered.
 >> In a separate skillet brown the Ground Beef, drain before adding onion and tomato mixture. Simmer uncovered for 30 minutes, stir in crumbled bacon and stir for 1 minute. Reduce heat to very low and stir in cheese. A third can of tomato sauce can be added if desired.

Sloppy Joes was not named after any Joe. The word Sloppy comes from the fact that the sandwich is messy to eat and if one eats it like a normal sandwich, there is a tendency to drop the meat and sauce all over the place. And the word Joe refers to the 'Average American', thus giving the sandwich a popular name.
 >> The Dictionary of American Slang defines Sloppy Joes as ‘any restaurant or lunch counter serving cheap food quickly'.
On the other hand, the Oxford English Dictionary defines it as 'a kind of American hamburger in which the minced beef filling is made into a kind of meat sauce'.
 >> The earliest Sloppy Joes recipe that can be found in print was published in 1963. That recipe "required 1/2 lb of Ground Beef, 1 can (1 lb) of beans and barbecue sauce, 1/4 cup ketchup and hamburger buns. To prepare the recipe, sauté while stirring the meat in medium skillet till it loses its red color. To the meat add the beans and ketchup, mix well and simmer uncovered for 5 minutes. Then split and toast the hamburger buns and spread the prepared mixture over them. Your Sloppy Joes sandwich is ready!"
 >> Different parts of the U.S. have their own versions of the Sloppy Joes recipe. In the Midwest, particularly the state of Iowa, the loose meat version of Sloppy Joes is more popular – as in the TV Show ROSEANNE! This loose meat sandwich is called the 'Maid-Rite' and is made only out of seasoned ground beef - the tomato sauce is missing. In New Jersey, Sloppy Joes is a completely different type of sandwich. There are a number of variations to the recipe, but the sandwich there always includes some sort of deli meat - be it turkey or ham or roast beef or sliced cow tongue and is served with cole slaw and rye bread with Russian dressing on it. In parts of Northeast U.S., especially the North Eastern part of the state of Pennsylvania, Sloppy Joes are also called 'WIMPIES'. On the other hand, in some places in South Western Illinois near St. Louis, they are also referred to as 'YIP YIPS'. A Sloppy Joe served without a bun is called a 'SAUCY BEEFEATER'. And a Sloppy Joe made out of ground turkey instead of ground beef is called a 'SLOPPY TOM'!
 just imagine Ernest Hemingway hanging out at his favorite watering hole. The place is a party waiting to happen since 1933!
