Slow Cooker Bacon Cheeseburger Sloppy Joes

Sloppy joes


  • 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)


  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Cook on low for 5-6 hours, or on high for 2 hours, stirring occasionally.
  4. When ready to serve, fill buns with the beef mixture and top with desired garnishes.
  5. Enjoy
