1 frozen garlic bread loaf (10 ounces), thawed
1 pound lean ground beef
½ cup chopped onion
2 cups shredded cheese (Colby jack recommended)
1 can (15-ounce) sloppy Joe sauce
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
Salt and pepper, tailored to your palate
Preheat the oven to a welcoming 375°F (190°C).
In a skillet, melt butter over medium heat, gently sautéing the chopped onion until it softens into translucence.
Welcome the ground beef into the skillet, cooking until it adopts a rich brown hue. Drain any excess fat, if desired.
Enrobe the beef with the sloppy Joe sauce, a sprinkle of salt, and a dash of pepper, allowing it to simmer gently, infusing the flavors together.
Meanwhile, gently part the thawed garlic bread loaf into two halves, placing them with open arms onto a baking sheet.
Tenderly ladle the sloppy Joe mixture across each garlic bread half, finishing with a generous sprinkle of shredded cheese.
Bake in your prewarmed oven for 15 minutes, or until the cheese melts into a bubbling golden blanket.
Allow it a moment to rest upon exiting the oven, then slice and serve warm, basking in each flavorful bite.
Enjoy the culinary embrace of the Sloppy Joe Garlic Bread, and let it weave its way into your family gatherings and cozy evenings, becoming a heartwarming tradition in its own right. Indulge, share, and revel in the bliss of comfort food reimagined.
