Crumbleburgers

During my Cub Scout and “church kid” years, we all loved it when the moms made “crumbleburgers,” my very favorite food for a summer picnic. I don’t know if crumbleburgers are exactly the same thing as “sloppy joes” or not. More important to me than their aliases is how they tasted. My mom’s approach was simplicity itself – ground beef and Heinz Chili Sauce – simmered together until it was scrumptious.
