Greek Sloppy Joes Recipe

A little feta cheese adds a depth of flavor like no other to a Sloppy Joes recipe. Leftovers make a tasty pita filling. — Sonya Labbe, West Hollywood, California
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 25 min. YIELD:6 servings


  • 1 pound lean ground beef (90% lean)

"This was very easy and a nice change of pace from regular sloppy joes. The Greek flavor is subtle though, so add more seasonings and feta if you desire a prominent Greek flavor. We used turkey instead of beef, and added a pinch of cinnamon."

"Not a lot of Greek flavor to this, other than the feta. Next time, I would add Greek seasoning to make it stand out from other sloppy joe recipes. It was easy to make, and did taste good."

"I made this because I happened to have the ingredients and it seemed simple. This was very easy and quick but it was also excellent. I added a dash of hot pepper sauce and a tsp of brown sugar."

"This was a great weeknight meal, which only took about 20 minutes to prepare from start to finish. The feta cheese is what makes this for me - otherwise I tend to agree that it tastes like spaghetti sauce. Next time I'll add some garlic and maybe some souvlaki seasoning to amp up the Greek flavor. Still a great base recipe to keep as is or make it your own!"

"Not a keeper. Tasted like spaghetti with meat sauce on a bun, so the feta did very little to the overall taste."

"Pretty good. I used a pre-made (homemade) pizza sauce instead of the tomato sauce and oregano, which made it even simpler, if that were possible. The feta is a nice touch."

this on slider size buns with taco chips.
Added some chopped garlic with the onion and smokey paprika. Kids liked that I added tablespoon of maple syrup"

"It was a little bland. I would much rather have had a Manwich. But, all in all, not bad and certainly healthier."
