Sloppy Joe Sliders are one of my delicious variations of an iconic childhood favorite turned into a fun slider sandwich that’s awesome as a dinner option or even appetizer. You are totally going to love the flavorful homemade Sloppy Joe Sauce that has simple ingredients you probably have in your kitchen now.
Add 2 tablespoons of unsalted butter to skillet over medium heat, once butter has melted, add yellow onion, green bell pepper, celery, and minced garlic. Cook until the veggies are softened about 6-7 minutes. Add the lean ground beef, 97/7 preferred. Cook until lean ground beef is completely browned, breaking up as it cooks. Drain fat if need be.
Add the organic ketchup, cane brown sugar, chili pepper flakes, spicy brown mustard, and water. Stir to combine and simmer for 25 minutes, adding kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper to your own taste. Next, add the organic tomato paste, and the Worcestershire sauce. Taste and adjust your seasonings if desired.
In a pretreated metal or glass baking dish place bottoms of sliders in baking dish, spoon the sloppy Joe mixture on the bottoms of the sliders, add the desired amount of white cheddar cheese on the Sloppy Joe mixture, place tops on slider rolls, brush with the melted unsalted butter, and place in a preheated 350 degrees oven, bake for 15-20 minutes.
Serve while hot with the desired side dish of your choice or as an appetizer.
