I was so excited when Land O’Lakes contacted me about trying their new Sharp Cheddar American Blend. My family LOVES cheese. All of us. Every. single. one. of. us. loves. cheese. I couldn’t wait to get my hands on their new product and it did not disappoint! My kids have been nibbling on it all day.
I also couldn’t wait to try Sharp Cheddar American Blend in a new recipe I’ve had in the back of my mind for a while, Cheesy Sloppy Joe Bread Bowls. It worked great! LAND O LAKES® Sharp Cheddar American Blend melts smooth like American, but is also bold and sharp like cheddar. It has a great creamy texture and slices beautifully! It would be perfect for everyday sandwiches, but it also would be great in a lot of other recipes such as dips, appetizers, entrees, and more. Sharp Cheddar American Blend comes in yellow or white and can be found at the deli section at many grocery stores so you can have it sliced thin or thick and buy a little or a lot at one time so try a slice next time you’re at the store.
To celebrate their new cheese, Land O’Lakes is offering a great prize for one lucky Snappy Gourmet reader including a panini press, a grilling utensil kit, and coupons for their Sharp Cheddar American Blend!

Let’s get started on these quick, easy, and delicious Cheesy Sloppy Joe Bread Bowls!
First, you’ll need to brown some ground beef in a pan. You could also use any ground meat such as chicken, turkey, pork, or even a vegetarian substitute. Add some chopped onion and green pepper and prepare the homemade sauce. The sauce only takes a few minutes to put together.
Be sure to give the sauce a taste and adjust to your family’s preference. If your family likes spicy food, you may want to add a little more chile powder or you could even throw in a little hot sauce.
While you let the ground beef, veggies, and sauce simmer for about 10 minutes, prepare your rolls. I used 4 pretzel rolls (found locally) but you can use any size or kind of roll you’d like. Slice the top off of each roll and remove the inside of the roll to make room for the filling.
Place a half slice of Sharp Cheddar American Blend in the bottom of each roll (I had to cut each half in half again to get it to fit).
When the sloppy joe filling is done simmering, spoon the filling into the rolls and top each with a slice of Sharp Cheddar American Blend. It should melt if the sloppy joe filling is still hot, but if you’d like you can also place the finished bread bowls in a warm oven or toaster oven for a few minutes to melt it.
These Cheesy Sloppy Joe Bread Bowls are the perfect 30-minute meal but would also make GREAT appetizers or snacks if you use mini rolls. I think I’ll be serving these at some fall football parties! The melted slices of Sharp Cheddar American Blend helps keep the filling inside so these Cheesy Sloppy Joe Bread Bowls aren’t so sloppy. :) Enjoy!
Hope you enjoy!
