This recipe is a creation of mine that resembles the traditional sloppy joe sandwich. I like to prepare it whenever I have a crowd to serve, because the recipe can easily be doubled or tripled. My children also love these for quick after-school snacks. I often fix the sauce ahead of time so they can reheat it quickly. —Barbara Gorden, Hanover, Pennsylvania

"This was easy and versatile. I didn't have sausage so I used 2 lbs ground beef. Because I wasn't using the sausage I felt like I needed to add additional seasoning, I used 2 tablespoons Italian seasoning, 1 tablespoon of fennel seed (to bring out that yummy pizza sauce flavor), 1 tablespoons paprika, 2 tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce. I also added a can of tomato sauce because it was too dry with just the tomato paste. Topped with fresh sliced mozzarella and broiled it was a hit!"

"Great! Even my 1 year old ate a few bites..so in my mind this is a def. winner. I also printed out the Pizza English Muffins recipe at the same time and did incorporate some of that recipe - added a little tomato paste and water as it seemed to need to be more saucy. Also, for the sausage I used ground turkey sausage."
