  • 1 pound lean ground beef I used 90/10 (or ground turkey)
  • 1/2 yellow onion diced
  • 1/2 a green bell pepper diced
  • 15 oz can tomato sauce
  • 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tsps oregano
  • 2 tsps basil
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 4 hamburger buns
  • 4 slices of mozzarella cheese


  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees
  • In a large nonstick skillet brown the meat with the vegetables until no longer pink and the vegetables wilt. Drain off the extra liquid.
  • Add in the tomato sauce, Worcestershire sauce, garlic powder, oregano, basil, salt, and dash of pepper.
  • Put the bottom halves of the hamburger buns on a baking sheet. Top with sloppy joe mix. Top each with a slice of mozzarella cheese. Put the sheet into the oven (leaving the tops of the buns out) for a few minutes until the cheese is melted. Remove from the oven, top with the tops of the buns and serve.
