Sweet Hawaiian Cheesy BBQ Sloppy Joes

These are SO good! It technically started off as a burger, but it was too messy so we tried turning it into sloppy joes. Easier to eat (although still messy!), but just as delicious! It is definitely a regular supper item in our household. The name is really long...but the food is so good, it is worth the long name!

 The recipe makes around 8 sloppy joes, depending on how much filling you use.

1.5 lbs ground beef
2 cloves minced garlic
1/2 yellow onion, minced
1/4 cup shredded Colby Jack cheese
1/2 honey BBQ sauce (maybe a little more if you like it saucier)
Can of crushed pineapple, drained (but save some juice!)
8 slices cooked bacon
1/2 lb sliced cheddar cheese
Kings Hawaiian Original hamburger buns
french-fried onions

Brown the ground beef and onion in large skillet. Drain fat.
Add in the garlic, Colby Jack, BBQ sauce, and some pineapple juice (I don't measure, but I would say a couple Tablespoons worth). Mix well and let simmer.

Split the buns and put them face up on a baking sheet. Put a slice or 2 of cheddar cheese on the top halves. Broil for a couple of minutes, until cheese is melted.

Put meat mixture on bottom half of bun, followed by crushed pineapple, french-fried onions, and a slice of bacon (we use 1 slice broken into 2 pieces). Enjoy!
