Texas Toast Sloppy Joe’s

Rather than using regular burger buns, these Sloppy Joes are served on Texas toast. You can find this ingredient in the frozen aisle of your local grocery store. Texas toast is simply a fancy way to say extra-thick bread slices, so feel free to use thick slices of any bread you happen to prefer if you can’t find Texas toast or if you have a loaf to use up. You can also serve these on burger buns if that’s more your jam, or even spooned over mashed potatoes or rice.

The Sloppy Joes are made with beef, onion and bell pepper, and the flavor comes from the addition of ketchup, sugar, Worcestershire sauce, garlic, and mustard, ensuring a very tasty result. You can omit the bell pepper if you want, or even use a red one instead. This makes a delicious dinner and is Texan-inspired comfort food at its finest.

Can You Make It Ahead?

You can make the Sloppy Joes mixture ahead and keep it refrigerated but don’t add the cheese or cook the Texas toast until just before serving.

Storage Instructions:

Keep leftover Sloppy Joes covered and refrigerated and eat within 3 days.

Variations and Substitutions:

Feel free to tweak the recipe, using buns or even mashed potatoes in place of the Texas toast, if you prefer. You could also try using ground pork or half pork and half beef. Any other type of sliced cheese would work too. You might want to have American sliced cheese on top of the bread and then another kind (maybe cheddar) on top of the Sloppy Joes.
