Cook the Beef
In a skillet over medium heat, sauté chopped bacon and finely chopped white onion. Cook until the onion is translucent and bacon is and golden. Then add ground beef to the skillet. Cook until it's browned and crumbled.
Sprinkle smoked paprika, ground cumin, chili flakes, and garlic powder into the skillet. Stir well to infuse flavors. Add ketchup, tomato paste and Worcestershire sauce. Mix to incorporate, creating a rich base. Let the mixture simmer for about 10 minutes, allowing flavors to meld and develop.

Bake and Melt
Preheat the oven to 180°C. Slice burger buns in half and toast them lightly. Spoon the savory beef mixture onto the bun bottoms. Sprinkle shredded cheese over the beef mixture. Complete your Sloppy Joes with the bun tops.
Melt a tablespoon of butter and stir in your favorite herbs. Lightly brush the tops of the burger buns with the herby butter. Bake the Sloppy Joes until the cheese melts and the buns turn golden. Enjoy!

Experiment with your favorite herbs for the melted butter finish. Parsley, thyme, or chives can bring unique flavors to the dish.
Choose buns that hold up well to the hearty filling. Brioche or whole-grain buns can add extra texture and taste.
Before you get started, toast your buns. Toasting the bun makes ALL the difference, and only takes a few minutes.
Adjust the amount of chili flakes to match your preferred spice level. Feel free to omit them for a milder flavor.
Swap the shredded cheese with your preferred type – cheddar, mozzarella, or a blend of cheeses for added depth.
I recommend to don't assemble the sandwiches you don't eat and store the meat mixture and buns separately. Store in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
