Grilled Cheese Combines With A Classic Sandwich For A Meaty Mashup
You can’t go wrong with a good grilled cheese, but if you’re craving a meatier, heartier meal make a grilled cheese and sloppy Joe mash up.
The grilled cheese’s melty magic is taken to new heights when fused with the rich, savory meat and tangy tomatoey sauce of sloppy Joe filling all served on crispy, toasted bread.
Start by making your sloppy Joe meat mixture with onion, tomatoes, and any other veggies you like from rustic bell peppers to spicy jalapenos or umami mushrooms.
Top it off with a rich sauce featuring cayenne, paprika, or chili for spice, brown sugar for caramelized sweetness, and BBQ or Tabasco sauce for a bit of smoke.
Pair your meat mixture with a versatile cheese like cheddar, Gruyère, gouda, or mozzarella. Then, build your sandwich on a bread that’s sturdy enough to hold all your toppings.
