    Meanwhile, in 10-inch skillet, cook beef and chopped onion over medium-high heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring frequently, until beef is thoroughly cooked and onion is tender; drain.
  • 5
    Stir in uncooked pasta and sauce mix (from Hamburger Helper box), milk, hot water, barbecue sauce and corn. Heat to boiling, stirring occasionally; reduce heat. Cover; simmer about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until pasta is tender. Remove from heat. Let stand 5 minutes (sauce will thicken as it stands).

    To serve, spoon sloppy joe mixture onto bun bottoms; top each with 1 or 2 onion rings. Cover with bun tops.

Expert Tips

  • Start cooking the sloppy joe mixture while the onion rings soak, and it will be ready to serve about the same time the onion rings come out of the oven.
  • Toast the hamburger buns, if desired.
  • If you don’t have buttermilk, make your own by squeezing half a lemon (about 1 tablespoon) into a cup of milk.
