BBQ Joes

I'm always on the hunt for new dinner recipes. 
Especially ones that don't take me a long time to cook. 
When I came across this one on the Mix and Match Mama, I added it to my menu. 
Not only did it seem simple, but it is perfect for the cooler rainy weather we had last week.  

Results:  A meal we will be making again.  Hubs exact comment was "with beef, bread, and cheese you can't go wrong".  I didn't add the cheese to mine and it was still good.  The only thing I would change is draining the beef after it's cooked, before you add in the tomatoes and BBQ sauce.  Enjoy! 

BBQ Joes

2 pieces of  frozen Texas Toast per person, toasted in the oven per package directions
1 pound of ground beef 
1 (14 oz) can of diced tomatoes, drained
1 1/2 cups BBQ sauce (your favorite)
1 1/2 cups Cheddar cheese, shredded
Pickled jalapenos to garnish, optional
Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO)
Salt and Pepper

In a large skillet over medium-high heat, brown your ground beef in a splash of EVOO.  Once brown, sprinkle in a little S&P and reduce heat to low and stir in your tomatoes and BBQ sauce.  Simmer uncovered about 8 to 10 minutes.

Take your toasted Texas toast and spoon your Sloppy Joe mixture down over the top.  Sprinkle a little cheese on top and garnish with your jalapenos.


  1. Genius! How have I never thought of this before?!

  2. These look amazing! Can't wait to add it to our menu next week!
