Spicy Sloppy Italian Joes!

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by KPD123

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!

Loved this! Made a nice change to normal sloppy joes. Flavour was great and this was easy to make and delicious!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Bake Texas toast style garlic bread slices per package directions. (I like the kind with cheese!).
  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. Add dry sloppy joe packet and spaghetti sauce to meat mixture. Stir well to combine.
  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. I serve these open-faced, so spoon sloppy joe mixture over baked garlic bread pieces and top with parmesan cheese.
