It sounds like you’re interested in a unique twist on the classic sloppy joes by adding garlic toast to the mix. Here’s a simple recipe for “Garlic Toast Sloppy Joes”:


For the Garlic Toast:

  • Slices of bread (white, whole wheat, or your choice)
  • Butter or olive oil
  • Garlic powder or minced garlic
  • Salt and pepper

For the Sloppy Joes Filling:

  • 1 pound ground beef or ground turkey
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1 small bell pepper, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Optional: shredded cheese for topping


  1. Start by making the garlic toast. Preheat your oven to the broil setting.
  2. Mix softened butter or olive oil with garlic powder or minced garlic, salt, and pepper.
  3. Lightly brush one side of each slice of bread with the garlic butter/oil mixture.
  4. Place the slices on a baking sheet with the buttered/oiled side facing up.
  5. Place the baking sheet under the broiler until the bread is toasted and golden brown. Keep an eye on it to prevent burning.
  6. In a large skillet, cook the ground beef or turkey over medium heat until browned. Break it into crumbles as it cooks. Drain excess fat if needed.
  7. Add the chopped onion, bell pepper, and minced garlic to the skillet. Cook until the vegetables are softened.
  8. Stir in ketchup, tomato paste, brown sugar, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, salt, and pepper. Mix well to combine all the flavors.
  9. Allow the mixture to simmer for about 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the flavors meld together and the sauce thickens.
  10. To assemble, place a scoop of the sloppy joe filling onto a slice of the garlic toast. You can optionally sprinkle shredded cheese on top.
  11. Place the assembled garlic toast sloppy joes back under the broiler for a minute or two, just until the cheese melts.
  12. Remove from the broiler and serve your garlic toast sloppy joes warm.
