  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 14.5 oz can diced tomatoes
  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 1/2 cup bottled barbecue sauce
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1 box (8 slices) frozen garlic Texas toast
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese or more


  • Brown and crumble ground beef in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
  • Drain excess grease.
  • Return meat to skillet and add in diced tomatoes, ketchup, barbecue sauce,
  • worcestershire sauce and sugar.
  • Give it all a good stir until combined then cover and cook on medium heat for about 10 minutes. While this is cooking, prepare your garlic Texas toast according to package directions.
  • When bread is ready, spoon filling on top of bread and then sprinkle with shredded cheese.


The added sugar is optional in this. I think it helps balance out the acidity of the tomatoes. But if you are using a very sweet barbecue sauce then you may not feel the added sugar is necessary. Just go by taste here.
