  • Cut a hole at the top of each sandwich roll and hollow out the bread leaving about a 1/2 inch shell (discard the extra bread or save for another use). Place rolls on a rimmed baking sheet.

  • Lightly oil a skillet and place over medium to medium-high heat. Cook ground beef and stir to crumble. Cook until no longer pink, about 10 minutes. Use a paper towel to sop up any grease, if necessary.

  • Pour sloppy joe sauce over the beef and continue cooking until heated through, about 5 minutes.

  • Evenly spoon beef mixture into each sandwich roll and top with shredded Cheddar cheese.

  • Bake in preheated oven until cheese is melted, about 10 minutes.

Cook's Note:

The extra bread is great for making homemade croutons or fresh breadcrumbs!

I sometimes use a canned sloppy Joe sauce if I'm pressed for time but when I do have the time I make my own. This is what I did for this recipe. This recipe is very versatile as you really can make the filling that YOU like. I will tell you this it is delicious! I wasn't able to find the Borden mild chedear shreds but I did find their Colby & Monterey Jack Shreds. Both my husband and I loved it! Read More

This was a quick and tasty sandwich to make and the presentation in the scooped out roll kept it fun and neat to eat! I used a mix of half ground turkey and half ground beef and we were happy with the results! Read More
