  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 onion, peeled and chopped
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, seeded, cored and chopped
  • 1 can (8 ounces) tomato sauce
  • 1/2 cup tomato ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon yellow mustard
  • 1 tablespoon white vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 package (12 count) Hawaiian Bread Rolls
  • 6 slices sliced Cheddar Cheese
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1 tablespoon Parmesan Cheese
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning


  • In a wide pan over medium heat, add ground beef. Cook, breaking apart with the back of the spoon until it begins to render fat.
  • Drain any excess fat except for about 1 tablespoon. Add onions and bell peppers and continue to cook until softened and meat is lightly browned.
  • Add tomato sauce, ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, yellow mustard, vinegar, and brown sugar. Stir until well-incorporated and sugar is dissolved. Bring to a boil.
  • Lower heat, cover, and simmer, occasionally stirring, for about 15 to 20 minutes or until meat is cooked and sauce is thick and reduced.
  • Season with salt and pepper to taste. Remove from heat and allow to slightly cool.
  • Spray a 9x13 baking pan with cooking spray.
  • Using a serrated knife, cut the rolls in half horizontally and place the bottom slab of bread in the prepared baking dish.
  • Spoon sloppy joe mixture on the bread and spread evenly to cover the surface.
  • Arrange cheese slices over the beef mixture.
  • Place the top slab of the bread over the cheese.
  • In a small bowl, combine melted butter, Parmesan cheese, and Italian seasoning. Brush over the rolls.
  • Cover with foil and bake in a 350 F oven for about 10 to 15 minutes or until hot and cheese is melted. Remove from heat and cut into individual pieces to serve.
