These are delicious. I got this from my sister a few years back. An easy hot sandwich, a nice alternative to sloppy joes or burgers, AND you can freeze them and make them directly from the frozen state.

1 pound ground beef
8 oz can tomato sauce
1/2 tsp basil
10 soft buns (we usually only get 6 buns, but I use fairly large buns....still, doesn't 10 sandwiches out of 1 pound beef sound a bit skimpy on the meat?)
1/2 tsp oregano
2 T grated parmesan cheese
sliced or shredded mozzarella

(I was thinking today that black olives and/or mushrooms would be good mixed in too! I'll have to try that sometime...if you decide to try it, please add as a comment so my followers know if it was hit or miss. Thanks!)

brown meat, drain
add everything else except mozzarella
put mixture on buns
top with mozzarella
wrap individually in foil

Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes or freeze

to make from freezer, heat to 350 degrees for 40 minutes


  1. We are wanting to eat the same things. I just made these and posted them last week. They are really good and my kids liked them way better than sloppy joes. We called them Pizza Joes.

  2. I saw your post. A little different...actually, yours are even easier!
