How to Store Sloppy Joes on Texas Toast
You should not assemble the sloppy joes before storing them. Instead, store the beef mixture in the fridge in a sealed container for up to 4 days. Then don’t toast the bread until you are ready to serve.
What can I use instead of ground beef?
You can use ground chicken, ground turkey, or even ground pork in place of the hamburger. Just keep in mind that they all taste slightly different, which will influence the final results.
Can I make this recipe without the cheese?
Yes, you can leave the cheese off or use a different flavor of cheese altogether.
Can I make this recipe ahead of time?
You can prepare the ground beef mixture up to 4 days in advance. However, it’s not a good idea to toast the bread until you are ready to serve the sloppy joes.
