Just wait 'til they sink their teeth into this super kid-friendly ground beef recipe! These fun-to-eat personal-sized English muffin pizzas will score you big points with the kids...with no worries about divvying up the portions!

What You'll Need:
  • 1 pound ground beef (see Note)
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 1/2 cups spaghetti sauce
  • 6 English muffins, split
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded reduced-fat mozzarella cheese
What To Do:
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. In a large skillet, saute ground beef, onion, garlic powder, salt, and pepper over high heat 8 to 10 minutes, or until beef is browned; drain liquid then stir in spaghetti sauce.
  3. Open English muffins and place the halves on a baking sheet; bake 6 to 8 minutes, or until lightly toasted. Remove muffins from oven and spoon beef mixture evenly over them. Sprinkle mozzarella cheese evenly over beef.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

they seem like sloppy joes with a little different spin!!

I do these for myself quite often, it's fun and delicious. They go great on a rainy day with a movie. Yes I toast the muffins 1st also. Baking them turns them into frisbees. I use pizza sauce too.

Loves these, except when I was a kid(now Im 46), we had these in school,except they used to to put them on hamburger buns. I also use the english muffins but I dont toast mine first due to the muffins getting hard. And I use pizza sauce instead of the spaghetti sauce cause the pizza sauce is thicker. We called them "Pizza Burgers". I made these for my kids when they were small and now they make them for their kids. mmmmmmmmm, ohhh sooo goooood!!!!!

I thought these were okay but my husband just loved them. I think it must be a "guy recipe." lol He mentioned several times how much he liked them and that we could have them anytime. So I guess this goes in the keeper file. Definitely a quick and easy dinner!
