=== Ingredients

1 small white onion, chopped

1 lb. ground beef

2 cloves garlic, minced

1/2 c. ketchup

1/3 c. brown sugar

2 tbsp. mustard

1 tbsp. chili powder

kosher salt

Freshly ground black pepper

4 tbsp. butter

8 slices sandwich bread (such as sourdough)

=== Directions

In a large skillet over medium heat, cook onions. Add ground beef and cook until no longer pink, 6 to 8 minutes. Drain fat.

 

Stir in ketchup, garlic, brown sugar, mustard, and chili powder and season generously with salt and pepper. Simmer until thick, 5 minutes. Transfer mixture to a plate and clean skillet.

 

Assemble sandwich: Butter one side of each piece of bread. Place one slice of bread buttered side down in skillet and spoon over sloppy joe mixture.  Top with 1/2 cup cheddar and one more slice of bread, buttered side up.

 

Cook over medium heat until bread is golden and cheese melty, about 3 minutes per side. Repeat with remaining ingredients.
