LAUSD School Cafeteria Sloppy Joes

I went to school at Ranchito Elementary school in the LAUSD in the 1970ís. They served the most delicious sloppy joes. 
I have tried many sloppy joe recipes over the years to see if any of them came close and none have. Do you know if that 
recipe is out there somewhere? I would love to make it for my kids and grandkids. 

Thank you,


Hi Marie,

Sorry, I had no success locating any sloppy joe recipe that mentioned LAUSD, Los Angeles schools, or Ranchito Elementary School. There is a school cafeteria sloppy joe recipe on my site, but it does not say what school it is from:


Iíll post this in case a reader can help.
