Smokey Sloppy Joe and Provolone


  • 2 lbs ground beef, cooked and drained
  • 2 cans sloppy joe sauce (Del Monte or a brand with a smoky BBQ flavor)
  • Liquid smoke (optional, if your sauce doesn’t have a smoky flavor)
  • 2 boxes Texas Toast garlic bread with cheese
  • Shredded mozzarella cheese or sliced provolone


  1. Preheat the Oven:
    • Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. Prepare the Meat Mixture:
    • In a skillet, brown the ground beef until fully cooked. Drain any excess fat. Add the sloppy joe sauce to the cooked beef. If the sauce doesn’t have a smoky flavor, you can add a little liquid smoke to achieve that smokiness. Simmer the mixture for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  3. Prepare the Garlic Toast:
    • Place the Texas Toast garlic bread with cheese on a cookie sheet. Bake in the preheated oven for 5 minutes to lightly toast.
  4. Assemble and Bake:
    • Remove the toasted garlic bread from the oven. Spoon the smoky sloppy joe mixture onto each slice of garlic toast. Top the meat mixture with either shredded mozzarella cheese or sliced provolone.
  5. Final Bake:
    • Return the cookie sheet to the oven and bake for an additional 7 minutes or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
  6. Serve and Enjoy:
    • Once out of the oven, let it cool for a few minutes before serving. Serve the Smokey Sloppy Joe and Provolone hot and enjoy!

Optional Additions:

  • Customize your Sloppy Joe by adding your favorite toppings, such as sliced onions, pickles, or jalapeños.
