Wow the entire family with Slow Cooker Bacon Cheeseburger Sloppy Joes! SO EASY, creamy, delicious, and loved by all.
Baseball season is BACK!!! My beloved Royals are fresh off WINNING THE WORLD SERIES and you truly wouldn’t believe how much we STILL talk about it in our family. Well not Pat, because he’s a Cardinals fan (#housedivided). I’ll still get random texts from my brother that say things like “remember when Hosmer bolted home??” or “WE RE-SIGNED GORDO!”. You know, the big moments. Sunday night’s opening game was everything I wanted it to be…and I’d be lying if I said the ceremony stuff didn’t give me a few tears. Just all the family memories associated with their run to win it all, it all floods back. Bonding at it’s best. So let’s celebrate the return of America’s pastime with SLOW COOKER BACON CHEESEBURGER SLOPPY JOES! Because something about these flavors scream Summer, fun, and togetherness. SO GOOD!
These Slow Cooker Bacon Cheese Burger Sloppy Joes are perfect for everyone in the family. They remind me of a restaurant that used to be in Kirksville called Crumbles and Cream. They made “burgers” like this. Kinda gross restaurant name, but sometimes food like this just hits the spot! And you will never believe how easy these are to throw together. Kids love them, adults love them, WIN WIN! Served with fries and a coke poured into a Royals WORLD CHAMPS glass? Now that’s a good lunch.
Happy Baseball season! Hope you love these as Bacon Cheeseburger Sloppy Joes as much as we do.
10 minPrep Time
2 hrCook Time
2 hr, 10 Total Time
- 1 1/2 pounds lean ground beef
- 1 tablespoon minced garlic
- 1 small package (8 ounces) velveeta (or similar product), cut into 1 inch cubes
- 1/2 cup diced onion
- 1 cup cooked bacon crumbles
- salt and pepper to taste
- 6 sandwich buns
- Lettuce, tomato, sliced cheese, and pickles as garnish (optional)
- Cook beef and garlic over medium/high heat in a 12 inch skillet, approximately 8-10 minutes. It will continue to cook in the slow cooker, so it's okay to cook it medium/medium well instead of all the way well done. Crumble the beef while you cook to your liking. Drain the skillet of the oil.
- Add the cooked beef to a non-stick sprayed slow cooker. Add in the cubed cheese, onion, bacon crumbles, and salt and pepper. Stir to combine as much as possible.
- Cook on low for 5-6 hours, or on high for 2 hours, stirring occasionally.
- When ready to serve, fill buns with the beef mixture and top with desired garnishes.
