Grilled Sloppy Joe Pockets

My family loves sloppy joes, so this was a new, fun way of making and serving them. They were a hit! In fact they were such a big hit that I might be persuaded to make them like this more often. YUMMY STUFF!!

Grilled Sloppy Joe Pockets
Yield: makes 4-6 sandwiches
8-12 slices heavy bread (homemade, deli, ciabatta buns etc...)
1-1 1/2 c. shredded cheddar cheese
Lay's WAVY potato chips
1 lb ground beef
1/2 lb. ground sausage
1 small jar pizza sauce

Cook ground beef and sausage until done. Drain grease. Add small amount of pizza sauce to meat...enough to mix in with meat but not to make it "soupy"...cook until hot, stirring frequently so that it won't stick. Butter one side of each piece of bread. Place desired amount of meat mixture on NON butter side of bread, add desired amount of cheese and potato chips. Top with another piece of bread, butter side UP. Place butter side of bread down in a HOT frying pan cook for 1-2 minutes until browned, turn over and repeat. Continue with each sandwich until all sandwiches are made. I used my Panini maker to make mine, but frying them in a pan like any ol' grilled cheese sandwich works like a charm.
