What is Texas Toast Sloppy Joes?

Texas toast sloppy joes are a delicious and easy way to get your daily dose of health benefits.

Sloppy joes are known for being classic American comfort food. They are typically made with ground beef, tomato sauce, and other ingredients like onions and peppers. But Texas toast sloppy joes take the original recipe and add an extra layer of flavor by using Texas toast instead of regular bread buns. The Texas toast absorbs all the flavors from the ground beef, tomatoes, and spices, so you don’t have to use as much sauce or spice to get the same amount of flavor!

And because Texas toast is made with white bread instead of whole wheat bread, it has fewer calories than regular bread buns but still provides many essential vitamins and minerals that your body needs every day. It also contains no cholesterol (like most burgers), which means that it’s good for your heart too!

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 2 tbsp mustard (or to taste)
  • 1 lb ground beef, cooked and drained

How to make Texas Toast Sloppy Joes

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. While heating up the oven, combine all ingredients except for the ground beef in a small bowl. Mix well until thoroughly combined. Set aside.
  3. In a large skillet over medium heat, add the ground beef and cook until browned and cooked through.
  4. Drain any excess grease off of meat before mixing it with the sauce mixture in the next step!
  5. Add sauce mixture into skillet with meat and stir well until evenly combined (about 4 minutes).
  6. Transfer the meat mixture onto a baking sheet and spread out into an even layer.
  7. Bake for about 20 minutes, or until fully cooked through and edges are crisping up.

Tips

If you’re looking for a way to make your sloppy joes even more delicious, try these tips!

  1. Toast the bread before you broil it. It will help the bread soak up more of that delicious sauce.
  2. Use a thicker sauce—the thicker it is, the easier it will be to spread on top of your Texas toast and enjoy!
  3. Make sure you broil them long enough to get all of those delicious flavors locked in there! You don’t want any of those flavors escaping into the air while they’re cooking!
  4. Don’t forget about that cheese! A little bit goes a long way when it comes to adding flavor to your sloppy joes, so don’t be afraid to pile it on there!

Storage

If you’re looking to store your Texas toast sloppy joes, there are a few things you can do to make sure they stay tasty and delicious.

  • First off, if you’re planning on keeping them for a while, it’s best to store them in an airtight container. This will help prevent their flavors from fading and keep them fresh until you’re ready to eat them again.
  • Another important thing is to make sure that you store the sloppy joes in a cool place. If they get too warm, they’ll start to spoil more quickly than normal food does—and that’s never good!
  • Finally, it’s important not to put any other foods on top of your Texas toast sloppy joes. This could cause bacteria from those other foods to spread onto yours!

Reheating

You can easily reheat sloppy joes on the stovetop or in the microwave.

Stovetop

  • In a small saucepan, heat 1/2 cup (125 mL) of water on medium-high heat.
  • Add in all of your leftover sloppy joes and stir gently to combine.
  • Let it simmer for about 5 minutes, or until heated thoroughly.

Microwave

If you want to reheat Texas toast sloppy joes in the microwave, place them in a microwave-safe dish and cover them with a damp paper towel. Heat for about one minute, then turn over and heat for another minute.
