How to make cheeseburger sloppy joes:

4 pictures.  1st picture: brown ground beef and onion, 2nd picture: add in broth and seasoning, 3rd picture: fold in the cheese until melted, 4th picture: serve on a bun with your favorite toppings.
  • First, brown the ground beef and onion together in a large skillet. Cook this over medium high heat and make sure to drain the excess grease.
  • Second, add the beef broth, ketchup, mustard, Worcestershire sauce and pepper. Stir this all together.
  • Finally, cook this mixture together uncovered for a few minutes.
  • At the last minute, fold the cheddar cheese into the meat until the cheese is melted.
  • Enjoy!

We serve warm on hamburger buns. Yum! For even more cheese flavor, top each bun with slices of cheese. My kids love cheese so always want the extra slices.

Side dish ideas:

If you want a simple side dish idea, try serving this with Crock Pot Baked Beans Recipe. So good! We also like to grill corn on the cob.

We don’t always serve dessert but when we do, everyone enjoys this Easy Cheesecake Brownies Recipe.

How to make this in the slow cooker:

This can also be a slow cooker recipe instead of using a large skillet. You  can easily throw this in the crock pot for a party!  You don’t need anything fancy, but I sure do like this programmable crock pot.

Which ever crock pot you use, I definitely recommend using crock pot liners. They make clean up a breeze! It’s so nice to just lift that liner right out and not have to scrub a crock pot. That defeats the purpose of a quick meal.

  • Brown the ground beef. If you have a Ninja slow cooker , you can brown it right in the slow cooker. Only one pan to clean in a big plus!
  • Add in the rest of the ingredients to the slow cooker. Stir to combine. Easy!
  • Cook on low for 3-5 hours.
  • A few minutes before serving, add the cheese until melted. Serve on hamburger buns.

More ideas:

  • Sliders. Another idea is to serve this as sliders. I think that would be perfect for parties or to feed a crowd.  We love BBQ Chicken Sliders so I bet Sloppy Joes would be a hit as well.
  • Double the recipe. This recipe is easy to double if you are having a crowd over. Everyone will enjoy it.
  • Freezer Friendly: This recipe will freeze great! Just double your recipe and freeze the left overs. All you have to do is re-heat and you have an even easier dinner in the future.
  • Bacon cheeseburger sloppy joes – Add bacon slices to the buns when serving to change up the flavor.

I hope your family enjoys this Bacon Cheeseburger Sloppy Joes Recipe!

We all love it and it’s nice having a quick meal on the menu plan rotation. I can always count on this recipe to be easy and please everyone.
