I love sloppy joes. I love all things barbecued. So when I saw this recipe, which combines those two loves, and then puts them on top of a piece of buttery Texas toast, I was instantly sold.
These are just as delicious as I thought they’d be. They remind me a lot of these burgers, but I think they taste even better. They definitely come together a lot more quickly. The sloppy joes themselves are tangy and flavorful, and when you combine them with crispy Texas toast and gooey melted cheese, it’s the perfect balance of textures and flavors. This one is a go-to, for sure.
