A twist on classic Sloppy Joes, these delicious (and not so sloppy) Italian-style mini-sandwiches are a fabulous game day snack. Everyone I've served them to has raved, even people who don't like traditional Sloppy Joes! Because the sauce is thick and chunky and the sandwiches are small, there is no need to worry about them creating a big mess. Enjoy!!
