Seasoned BBQ ground beef served over a cheesy, crunchy, and toasty piece of thick Texas Toast. This is a 30 minute meal that the entire family will love!
I am so excited to be posting easy dinner recipes again! After 12 days of posting sugar & sweets, it feels good to post these easy, simple, and totally delicious dinner recipes.
These Texas Toast BBQ Sloppy Joes are one of our new favorites. You just cook up some ground beef, add some seasonings, and your favorite BBQ sauce and let it simmer. Cook up some frozen Texas Toast and then you’ve got a delicious dinner.
And speaking of BBQ sauce, have you guys seen all the different flavors of BBQ sauce in the stores? Its crazy?! I guess I don’t buy it that often but when I was buying it for this recipe it took me like 10 minutes to decide what one to get. I finally settled on Sweet Baby Ray’s ‘Sweet Vidalia Onion’ flavor and it was delicious. That’s one thing I love about these is that each time you make it you can switch up the BBQ sauce and even the diced tomatoes too.
I used a cheesy version of the frozen Texas Toast but feel free to use any kind you want. If you don’t want to use frozen just buy a loaf of Texas Toast and then spread with butter and maybe some garlic salt (?) and then broil on low for a few minutes in the oven.
These are not technically “sloppy joes” because it’s not the traditional sandwich. Instead you just serve some meat mixture over the toast and then eat with a fork. Or, just pick up the bread and eat it like a sandwich. However you choose to eat these they will still be dee-licious!
Use any variety of BBQ sauce and diced tomato. I've used regular diced & chili style diced tomatoes. There are lots of other varieties so get creative! If you like some spice use the diced tomato w/ green chilies.
- 1 lb ground beef
- 1 onion, finely diced
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
- 1 can (14.5 oz) diced tomatoes
- 1 1/2 cups (18 oz bottle) BBQ sauce
- 1 box frozen Texas Toast, any variety
- pickled jalapenos, shredded cheese for garnish
- Brown ground beef and diced onion in skillet pan over medium-high heat until meat is no longer milk. Drain grease.
- Add in salt, pepper, diced tomatoes and BBQ sauce and stir to combine. Turn heat to medium-low and let simmer for 15-20 minutes.
- Prepare Texas Toast according to box instructions or toast/broil your own.
- Spoon sloppy joe mix over a piece of toast and garnish with pickled jalapeno (found by the pickles in the store) and shredded cheese. The jalapenos were too hot for my kids so they just had cheese.
Don’t forget your meat chopper. This is hands down my favorite and most used kitchen tool. It grounds up the groud beef perfectly and makes cooking ground beef so easy!
