Thaw Frozen Garlic Bread
To get started, you’ll need the following ingredients:

Thawing frozen garlic bread is the first step in this recipe. Place the frozen garlic bread on a baking sheet and allow it to thaw at room temperature for about 30 minutes.
Preparing Ground Beef and Onion
For the meaty component of our Sloppy Joe Garlic Bread, you’ll need:
- 1 pound ground beef (lean)
- ½ cup onion (chopped)
- 1 tablespoon of unsalted butter
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C).
- In a skillet, melt the unsalted butter over medium heat.
- Add the chopped onion to the skillet and cook until it becomes softened.
Making Sloppy Joe’s Sauce
The heart of any Sloppy Joe dish is the sauce. You’ll need:
- 15-ounce can of Sloppy Joe’s Sauce
- Once the onions are soft, add the lean ground beef to the skillet.
- Cook the ground beef until it turns brown, and be sure to drain off any excess fat if necessary.
- Stir in the Sloppy Joe’s Sauce, adding salt and black pepper to taste. Allow it to simmer for a few minutes until it’s heated through.

- Place the garlic bread halves on a baking sheet.
- Spread the Sloppy Joe’s mixture evenly over one half of each garlic bread half.
- Sprinkle the grated cheese over the Sloppy Joe mixture.
Baking and Serving
