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!
