Who's says you need buns for sloppy joes? Of course, it's not so sloppy on a potato. Still, they are sloppy joes.
My family ate theirs on buns. Plain old white hamburger buns. Mine? On a delicious, hot sweet potato. Not so sloppy this way. Mine tasted better too!
I know, I've been putting a lot of food on top of a sweet potatoes. Get used to it. It's good.
