Italian Sloppy Joe's Grilled Cheese Recipe

1 pound ground round or use ground turkey
1 can whole tomatoes put through food processor
1 chopped Italianelle sweet or hot pepper or  use bell pepper
3 cloves finely minced garlic
1 teaspoon granulated garlic
11/2 tablespoons Worchestire sauce
1 teaspoon mustard
2 tablespoons sugar

For the bread:
Italian bread sliced for as many sandwiches you're going to make
Olive oil
Granulated garlic

Cheese to use:
Slices of thick cut cheese either extra sharp provolone, cheddar, mozzarella or a mixture

Brush both sides of the bread with olive oil and sprinkle with garlic. Set aside.

In a medium frying pan, add 3 tablespoons olive oil, garlic, beef and peppers, fry until pink is gone. Add all the rest of the ingredients down to the sugar. 

Using a griddle or clean frying pan, spread the cooked meat on the inside of the sandwich placing the garlic oil side of the bread down. Put the cheese on top of the loose meat, top with another slice of bread oil side up. Grill each side on low heat until the cheese melts.

Serve with my homemade marinara sauce to dip it in or plain is perfect too!
