    KPD's Note:

    This is my version of open-faced sloppy joes. I probably make this 2-3 times a month...DH loves it so! To make this a fast, weeknight meal I use a sloppy joe packet and frozen Texas toast garlic bread slices with 5 cheeses(of course, you don't have to get the kind with cheese). You could also use a loaf of garlic bread and cut into large pieces after baking if you prefer. Enjoy!

    Serves: 4


    open fa ...

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Bake Texas toast style garlic bread slices per package directions. (I like the kind with cheese!).
    2. 2
      Brown meat (breaking up into crumbles), onion, peppers, and garlic in a large skillet over medium high heat until veggies are soft and meat is cooked through. Drain grease if necessary.
    3. 3
      Add dry sloppy joe packet and spaghetti sauce to meat mixture. Stir well to combine.
    4. 4
      Reduce heat to medium. Let sauce simmer until reduced to desired consistency, about 5-10 minutes (we like ours super saucy, so I only simmer about 5 min).
    5. 5
      I serve these open-faced, so spoon sloppy joe mixture over baked garlic bread pieces and top with parmesan cheese.

      Very good. Made this for two and turned out great. I did add pepperoni to give it a bit more spice.

      Loved this open-faced version of sloppy joes! I had some Texas toast in the freezer I wanted to use up, and this was a great way to do it. I didn't want the result to be too spicy, so I used about a half teaspoon of red pepper instead of the amount called for in the recipe.
