Sloppy Joe Garlic Bread

Sloppy Joe Garlic Bread is a delicious twist on the classic Sloppy Joe sandwich. Here’s a simple recipe to make it:


For the Sloppy Joe filling:

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 1/2 bell pepper, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup tomato sauce
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon mustard
  • Salt and pepper to taste

For the garlic bread:

  • 1 loaf French bread or baguette
  • 4 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley (optional)


  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. In a large skillet, cook the ground beef over medium heat until browned. Drain excess fat if needed.
  3. Add diced onion, bell pepper, and minced garlic to the skillet. Cook until the vegetables are softened, about 5 minutes.
  4. Stir in tomato sauce, tomato paste, Worcestershire sauce, brown sugar, mustard, salt, and pepper. Simmer the mixture for 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the flavors meld and the sauce thickens. Adjust seasoning to taste.
  5. While the Sloppy Joe filling is simmering, prepare the garlic bread. Slice the French bread or baguette in half lengthwise and place it on a baking sheet.
  6. In a small bowl, mix together the softened butter, minced garlic, grated Parmesan cheese, and chopped parsley (if using).
  7. Spread the garlic butter mixture evenly over the cut sides of the bread.
  8. Toast the garlic bread in the preheated oven for about 5 minutes, or until lightly golden and fragrant.
  9. Once the garlic bread is toasted, remove it from the oven and spoon the hot Sloppy Joe filling onto one half of the bread.
  10. Place the other half of the garlic bread on top to form a sandwich.
  11. Slice the Sloppy Joe Garlic Bread into individual portions and serve hot. Enjoy your delicious and flavorful meal!
