Another Southern Living recipe that we love. Confession: I don't always serve this on the Texas toast. It is certainly more fun when I do! This recipe is also good with coleslaw served on top of the sloppy joe meat. These are open face sandwiches that we eat with a fork most of the time.
Cheesy BBQ Sloppy Joe Sandwiches
1 1/2 lbs ground beef
14.5 oz canned diced tomatoes
1 cup ketchup
1/2 cup barbecue sauce
1 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
2 Tbsp chopped pickled jalapeno peppers (optional)
1 Tbsp liquid from pickled jalapeno peppers (optional)
1 11.25 oz package frozen garlic Texas toast
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
Pickled jalapeno pepper slices (optional)
Brown ground beef in a skillet over medium-high heat until crumbled and no longer pink, drain fat. Return to skillet and add tomatoes, next three ingredients and jalapenos and liquid, if desired. Cover and cook 10 minutes. Meanwhile prepare Texas toast according to package directions. Serve beef mixture over Texas toast, sprinkle with cheese and pepper slices, if desired. Serve with coleslaw.
