You know how the culinary critics will suggest additions or deletions from a star recipe. My suggestion would be don't touch this one! Jason you were dead on! Thanks

These were really good! Used plain sandwixh buns (couldn't find pretzel buns) and Swiss cheese. Also, since a few reviews mentioned they needed some type of sauce, I added a little beef broth & cornstarch slurry to hold them together. Looking forward to having these again when the weather gets cooler!

We really enjoyed this. After reading the reviews, I also thought it seemed a little drier than a sloppy joe type meat mixture, so I added a little flour(2T) and a little beef broth(1/4c), and that made it the perfect consistency for us. I will definitely make this again, maybe even for a big family gathering! VFE

Sounds great, but why provolone? I think I'd like muenster instead, but still nice recipe!

This was a great sandwich! I used homemade sauerkraut and Kaiser rolls instead of the pretzel rolls. I wanted to give it a bit of a Reuben zing, so I baked them without the tops, toasted the tops separately and added a dollop of Thousand Island dressing when the cheese was melted. A definite hit I'll be making again!

We really loved these and made them with fresh bratwurst (removed the casing) and served them on pumpernickel buns with Gouda cheese. Enough cheese holds the filling in the bun but I don't mind eating the bits with a fork. We used pretzel buns for the next batch of Sloppy Ottos.

The flavors of dish were unique and delicious. However, I felt it needed a bit more sauce or something. When we think of sloppy sandwiches - we want a saucy mess :) I ended up adding just a bit of tomato sauce to go with the sausage. I really liked the sauerkraut though!
