Subject: Sloppy Joe recipe from Ft. Walton Beach, Fl

My name is Kathie and I live in TN. My husband is looking for a recipe for Sloppy Joes from the 
Ft. Walton Fl. grade shool system dating back to the 1960's.
Thank you very much for any help that you can give us.


Hi Kathie,

Sorry, I had no success at all with this. If you can find a Fort Walton Beach message board or forum on which residents and former residents post messages, you might have some success by posting your request there.

I used to make a sausage soup with sweet Italian sausage, Ragu sauce, Brussels sprouts, I think elbow macaroni, 
maybe chicken broth and I don't remember what else. Do you have any idea what recipe this is?


Hello Barbara,
