As we head into the upcoming holiday season, I’ve been thinking about family-friendly meals. You know, those meals that your kids always want to eat. In our house, this Creamy Baked Mac and Cheese is number one on our list… with these sloppy joes being number 2! With two little ones myself, I know ALL too well how frustrating it is to cook a meal and have them promptly turn up their noses and say it’s “gross”. *facepalm*
I’ve always been a fan of classic sloppy joes. There’s something so innately satisfying about the sweet and savory combination and messiness of it all! And I know you all love them too, since I’ve been getting a lot of requests for sloppy joe recipes.
1 pound lean ground beef
2 cups spaghetti sauce more or less, depending on your preference
8 slices frozen garlic toast
1 cup mozzarella cheese shredded
Fresh parsley chopped
Preheat oven to the cooking temperature instructed on the box of garlic toast.
Crumble the ground beef into a skillet and cook over medium-high heat until fully browned. Drain off the excess fat, then stir in the spaghetti sauce. Simmer the meat sauce for 7-10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
While the meat sauce is simmering, bake the garlic toast according to package directions until golden brown on both sides.
Spoon the meat sauce on top of the garlic toast, then top with mozzarella cheese. Serve hot.
