As a kid, I grew up eating Sloppy Joe’s as a regular staple. It was an easy meal to cook, and pretty inexpensive to make, so we ate it a LOT. I do occasionally make Sloppy Joe’s for my kids, which they love, but I will still enjoy one myself every now and then.

Not too long ago, I decided to try out a new concept I’d seen around a few times, by combining the ingredients of a Philly Cheesesteak in the form of a Sloppy Joe. Really, this is a spectacular idea, and I’m totally surprised it hasn’t become a huge thing yet! The end result was wildly successful, and absolutely delicious.

All the traditional Philly Cheesesteak flavors were there, but it was an easier recipe to assemble because everything was already combined together before I even got it on the bun. And these cheese just melts right into the ground beef making it oh-so sloppily amazing. I recommend sandwich thins with this recipe in order to cut calories, but you can use any kind of bun you’d like.

When I made this recipe for my photo, I used the only buns I had on hand at the time, which wasn’t the sandwich thins, but you get the idea. :) Enjoy!

  1. I would use less Worcestershire. It made it way too sweet for me. I’l try again but make a few modifications. I also used ground turkey…I think that messed it up.

  2. Delicious! My entire family enjoyed this recipe. I hope you’ll consider adding a print button to your recipes at some point. Your recipes never print properly for me & I always have to write them down. I appreciate the nutritional values so I can quickly calculate WW points since I’m using an older program.

  3. I’m always wishing you had a print button for your recipes…or am I just missing it? I am able to get them printed, but it’s awkward to do. I’ve looked and looked, but if there is one, I just can’t find it. Love your recipes though!

  4. How do you remove the ads that pop up in the middle of the recipe? This is very annoying – especially when these stores are no where around where I live.
