You will need:

  • Sloppy Joe meat
  • 8 slices of bread
  • 8 slices of mild cheddar cheese
  • 2 tbsp softened butter

SUBSTITUTIONS AND ADDITIONS

CHEESE: We love to make these with mild cheddar cheese, but you can substitute your favorite kind. Some popular choices include Pepper Jack (for a little extra spice) or Provolone (for a milder taste).

HOW TO MAKE THIS GRILLED CHEESE SLOPPY JOE RECIPE

STEP 1: Heat a skillet over medium heat.

STEP 2: Lightly butter your bread slices and put one slice in the pan, butter side down. Add cheese.

STEP 3: Allow the cheese to melt slightly and then spoon on the sloppy joe meat. Top with cheese and another slice of bread, butter side up.

PRO TIP: Don’t rush this step! Melting your cheese a little bit will help keep your whole sandwich together when it’s time to flip it.

STEP 4: Carefully flip the sandwich and cook for an additional 2 – 3 minutes, or until the bread is golden brown.

Grilled Cheese Sloppy Joes Getting Too Sloppy? Here’s How to Keep It Together:

If you find that your filling keeps falling out of your sandwich, try melting your cheese more before adding your filling. Melting the cheese will help the whole sandwich stick together. And if you still have too much mess, try adding less filling or more cheese.

Make Your Own Sloppy Joes Meat

It’s hard to beat homemade Sloppy Joes meat, and this recipe tastes great with leftovers. Save time by making a big batch of Sloppy Joes Meat, freezing it, and using leftovers to make these sandwiches.

HOW TO SERVE

These sandwiches don’t need much on the plate with them, but they go perfectly with some chips and veggies. A classic coleslaw or simple Caesar salad are both light options that go well with grilled cheese sloppy joes.
