Seasoned, sauced ground beef on a bun makes such a great, quick weekday meal that there’s only one way to top these Easy Italian-Style Sloppy Joes: with cheese. The recipe for the beef mixture comes together quickly in one pan and is piled high on soft rolls before being topped with a sprinkle or a slice of cheese. The heat from the meat mixture melts the cheese just enough to make every bite of these Italian-style sloppy joes gooey and delicious—the ideal comfort food. You can also serve the high- protein beef mixture in tacos, over pasta, or use it to make a new spin on stuffed peppers.
