Italian Sloppy Joes

It's funny how I'm always talking about how I am not a big fan of sloppy joes. Never ate them growing up blah blah blah but I now find myself making them often and I love creating new variations of this classic sandwich. These Italian Sloppy Joes are so good it's like you are eating a spaghetti sandwich minus the spaghetti!

Italian Sloppy Joes
Serves 4

16 oz. 93/7 ground beef
2 tsp. Italian seasoning
2 cups pasta sauce
4 slices mozzarella cheese
8 slices light texas toast

Brown meat over medium high heat. Drain and add in the Italian seasoning and pasta sauce. Simmer 10 minutes.

Meanwhile bake texas toast. Spoon meat mixture over one slice toast and top with one slice mozzarella. Broil for 2 minutes or until cheese is melted. Top with another slice of texas toast. Enjoy!


  1. What a great idea and such an effortless recipe. I'll definitely have to try this!


  2. You just put an amazing twist on the sloppy joe. Oh my gosh. I want one right now. I will be trying this Linking up from Favorite Things Blog Hop.

  3. This sounds great, what a great meal idea for busy weeknights. If you had a spare moment, I would be delighted if you'd drop this (and anything else you'd like to share) by at the #PureBlogLove DIY and recipe link party! You can find me here:

  4. mmm, Texas toast is a great idea for this sandwich!!
