I like to use buns or hoagie rolls for my sloppy joe sandwiches. But that is a personal preference. You can use whatever kind of bread you want.

I like to slightly toast the inside of the cut buns so that the bread doesn’t get too soggy. Again, my preference but you do you!

The first time I made this recipe my wife asked what we were going to do with the leftovers since there were only two of us. She didn’t want to have bread 2 nights in a row so she used the meat mixture to make herself some “chili fries”.
