    Loved the flavor of this. I left out the rosemary, added some Italian seasoning as well as the garlic, oregano and onion powder. I used a good portion of fresh basil instead of dried. My family ate it giving great compliments. This is a keeper: the best sloppy joe recipe I've come across.

    Not too bad and easy to make. I agree that the seasonings gave them a strong taste. I would probably cut back on the rosemary.

    I used a less rosemary, and added crushed red pepper flakes. Great taste & really simple. This is making the regular rotation!

    I made these open face style and lightly broiled them. They were a hit with my husband and I as well as our young children. Will make again and again.
