Cheesy Garlic Bread Sloppy Joes


For the Garlic Bread:

1 loaf French bread, cut in half lengthwise
4 tablespoons butter, softened
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon chopped parsley
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
For the Sloppy Joes:

1 pound ground beef
1 small onion, finely chopped
1 green bell pepper, finely chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 cup tomato sauce
1/2 cup ketchup
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 teaspoon chili powder
Salt and pepper to taste

Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a small bowl, mix together the softened butter, minced garlic, and chopped parsley. Spread the mixture evenly over the cut sides of the French bread. Sprinkle the shredded mozzarella cheese on top.

Place the bread on the prepared baking sheet and bake in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and the bread is golden brown.
While the bread is baking, prepare the Sloppy Joes. In a large skillet over medium heat, cook the ground beef until browned and fully cooked. Drain any excess fat.
Add the chopped onion, bell pepper, and minced garlic to the skillet. Cook for 3-4 minutes, or until the vegetables are softened.
Stir in the tomato sauce, ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, brown sugar, chili powder, salt, and pepper. Bring to a simmer and cook for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Once the garlic bread is done, remove it from the oven and let it cool slightly. Cut the bread into individual servings and top each piece with a generous portion of the Sloppy Joe mixture.
Serve immediately and enjoy!
