A school lunch throwback that's sloppy and good

There's no school lunch revival more nostalgic than the Sloppy Joe sandwich. You can do a lot with basic pantry ingredients and a pound of ground beef, but few recipes are easier than this. The classic is (barely) contained in a burger bun, but feel free to experiment with various rolls and other types of bread.
