When you are busy getting ready for the holidays and taking part in so many pre-holiday festivities, it’s always nice to have a recipe on hand like sloppy joes for an easy dinner.

It’s even easier when they can be made in the slow cooker, like this recipe from the new book “365 Slow Cooker Suppers” ($24.99, softcover, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt) by Stephanie O'Dea, creator of the food blog http://www.crockpot365.blogspot.com/.

The book offers recipes for a year’s worth of slow cooker suppers, including this one that gets a little sweetness from the addition of a cup of Dr. Pepper.

O'Dea also includes instructions on how to convert the recipe to gluten-free.
