Consider this the elevated version of your ordinary Sloppy Joe recipe. We’ve added just a few extra touches to make this meal over-the-top delicious! Starting with easy-to-find ingredients, this dinner will be done in just 30 minutes.

Ingredients for Texas Toast Sloppy Joes


  1. Frozen Texas Toast
  2. Ground beef – can be substituted with ground turkey or ground chicken
  3. Sloppy Joe seasonings (or your own homemade version if you prefer)
  4. Mozzarella cheese – can be swapped with cheddar cheese or preferred cheese

Optional Ingredients / Substitutions

For additional flavors and preferences, consider the following optional ingredients:

  • Diced yellow onion – or chopped onion of choice
  • Brown sugar
  • Garlic powder
  • Worcestershire sauce
  • Yellow mustard
  • Salt and black pepper
  • Green bell pepper
  • Barbecue sauce
  • Diced tomatoes
Garlic Toast


Begin by lining a baking sheet with foil or parchment paper. Bake the garlic Texas Toast bread according to the directions on the box. Just beware, the smell of this bread baking will spread throughout the house and everyone will start to get hungry instantly.

Ground meat

While the garlic toast is cooking, brown your ground meat of choice in a large skillet over medium high heat. Either beef or turkey works perfectly. After the meat is cooked and drained, add the traditional Sloppy Joe seasonings. As always, you can always use homemade vs. pre-made, therefore, whatever works best for you and your family:)

Sloppy Joe Sauce Recipe

Once both the meat and garlic bread are ready, top each piece of buttery toast with the Sloppy Joe mixture. This recipe calls for 8 pieces of toast. However, you can load up the pieces of toast however you prefer!

After that, top them off with shredded mozzarella cheese and they are ready for the final step! Just like the meat-to-bread ratio, you can add as much or as little mozzarella cheese as you like – I won’t judge:)


Store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 2 days

  1. This looks like a dish to serve my grandkids. They come over every Monday night for supper and we watch an episode of a series we like. I am so fortunate to be able to spend this time with them 🙂
    Just wondering what you think would be a nice side dish to go with this.

  2. I make sloppy Joe’s all the time but now I’m gonna start making it this way .
    may I add . I like to put chopped onions and green bell pepper to give it taste. I also make garlic bread casserole.
