Pineapple Sloppy Joe Sliders

Pairing pineapples with anything is always an instant hit in our house and an easy way to simply make a meal more extraordinary.I love making my weeknight meals as easy as possible to prepare since dinnertime is incredibly hectic for us with swim team practice, homework, and early bedtimes with young children. I like a meal I can whip together and have ready to serve in under 15 minutes.

Enter Manwich for a super quick easy meal solution. What kid doesn’t love Sloppy Joes?

Check out our yummy Pineapple Sloppy Joe recipe to turn you case of the Mondays into a Case of the Mandays with this easy weeknight meal your entire family will adore. Calling this a recipe is even a stretch as it is just literally a touch of creativity to sweeten your ordinary Sloppy Joe into something extraspecial and sweet the children will devour. We even made a gluten free version for Kyle as we served his Sloppy’s Joe’s on his special gluten free bread.

Honestly, I was able to make this dinner in under 15 minutes – this included all prep and cook time. Incredibly easy for something so yummy and healthy for my kids.
