We've grown quite fond of these cute little sandwiches.
Toasty Joes are a take on traditional Sloppy Joes (or yip-yips as they used to say in the school cafeteria).
Brown 1 1/2 pounds of hamburger in a saucepan. Drain fat.
1/4 cup chopped onion or some onion powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon mustard
1 tablespoon brown sugar
3/4 cup catsup
1/2 cup bbq sauce
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional)
Stir add-ins into the hamburger and cook on medium until heated throughout--about 10 minutes.
Instead of serving on a bun, we like it on toasted "everything" bread.
Do you have "everything" bread where you live? It's a French bread loaf topped with everything--poppy seeds, garlic, herbs, sesame seeds, and I don't know what all. It's good.
Then add whatever toppings to suit each person. I like shredded cheddar cheese and black olives. You could add sliced onions, green peppers, jalapenos, fries, sour cream. Whatever!
I like that I can crank these out in a hurry for all the hungry loiterers in my kitchen.
