Slow Cooker Sloppy Joes from food bloggers, including some think-outside-the-box sloppy joes!

Sloppy Joes are one of those easy and kid friendly meals that everyone ate as a kid, but when I started saving ideas for Slow Cooker Sloppy Joes I discovered there are some pretty adult versions of good Sloppy Joes out there as well.  Here are some different recipes for Sloppy Joes, probably enough to get you through a summer of Sloppy Joe suppers!

Recipes from Food Bloggers for Slow Cooker Sloppy Joes found on
Let's start with Minnesota Sloppy Joes from Kitchen Parade, shown in the photo above.  This recipe sounds like the classic Sloppy Joes I remember from childhood, and Alanna says it's a family recipe.

I love the sound of this Crock Pot Italian Sloppy Joe from Skinnytaste, made with turkey Italian Sausage.

These Crock Pot Sloppy Joes from Food in the Kitchen are a favorite of Gudrun's kids.  The recipe has onion, celery, and red bell pepper as well as some terrific sounding seasonings to flavor the ground beef.

I like recipes that think outside the box a bit, like this Sloppy Joe Meatball Sandwich from Kayotic Kitchen.

Slow Cooker Sloppy Joes from Foodie with Family can be made with ground beef or turkey, and this meat mixture freezes well for a make-ahead meal.

Slow Cooker Sloppy Joes from Bakerette have the classic flavors everyone loves in a homemade sloppy joe!

I promised something for the adults, and these Smoky Spicy Sloppy Joes for Grownups from Coconut and Lime have a touch of bourbon in the sauce, as well as a very grown up collection of smoky and spicy flavorings.

Homemade Sloppy Joes from Simply Sugar and Gluten Free have no added sugar or ingredients containing sugar.

Another think-outside-the-box idea that I love is these Slow Cooker Sloppy Joe Beef Quesadillas from The Perfect Pantry.

Slow Cooker Sloppy Joes from Slender Kitchen start with extra-lean ground beef.

Slow Cooker Sloppy Joes from Lynn's Kitchen Adventures combine ground beef and pork sausage, and the meat also has a chopped green pepper added.

And finally, how about Crockpot Chicken Sloppy Joes from Color Me Pink?  Chicken breasts are cooked on low in  a smoky barbecue-flavored sauce and then the shredded chicken and sauce is served with cabbage slaw.
