Game Day Sloppy Sliders

It's that time again! March Madness is upon us and it's also National Sloppy Joe Day on March 18th. Here are my Game Day Sloppy Sliders. I will be making these on WZZM TV13 this weekend, so tune into the morning show.

Game Day Sloppy Sliders

Game Day Sloppy Sliders



2 lbs lean ground beef

1 red onion, chopped

1 bell pepper, chopped

2 garlic cloves, minced

6 ounce can tomato paste

1 cup water

1/4 cup brown sugar

1 tbsp apple cider vinegar

1 tbsp dijon mustard

1 tbsp worcestershire sauce

1 tbsp adobo sauce

1 tsp salt

1/2 tsp pepper

1 tsp onion powder

1 tsp chili powder

1/4 tsp smoked paprika

1/8 tsp ginger

Hamburger buns, split and lightly toasted (Slider buns, pretzel buns or regular hamburger buns)


French onion dip


Shredded cheddar cheese


Over medium high heat, brown ground beef along with onions, peppers and garlic until meat is no longer pink. Drain off excess fat. Add remaining ingredients to the ground beef mixture and simmer for 10-15 minutes.

Serve meat mixture on toasted buns.


Add shredded cheese or sliced cheese to the bottom bun, then add some sloppy joe mixture. Add some chips for a nice crunch followed by a dollop of french onion dip and finish with the bun top. This is how I eat my sloppy joe!
