Sloppy Joe Casserole

This Sloppy Joe Cornbread Bake is a weeknight staple at our house. It is crazy good!! We could not stop eating this yummy casserole. Sweet cornbread topped with sloppy joe meat and cheese. I mean, what’s not to love? I’m not even a big fan of sloppy joes and I gobbled this up! We ate this for dinner and finished off the leftovers for lunch.

How to Make Sloppy Joe Cornbread Casserole

This casserole is SUPER easy to make. Start with making the cornbread base. Mix together Jiffy mix cornbread, creamed corn, eggs, milk, and a little cheese. Pop that in the oven to partially bake and prepare the sloppy joe meat. I browned some ground beef and used a can of Manwich sloppy joe sauce. Remove the cornbread from the oven. Top with the sloppy joe meat and cheese. Place the pan back in the oven and bake until the cornbread is done.

You can assemble this casserole up to the point of spreading the sloppy joe meat on the partially baked cornbread and freeze it for later. To bake the casserole after freezing, thaw completely and bake at 400ºF for about 30 minutes until the cornbread is fully baked. Freezer meals are such a timesaver!

You can also freeze any leftovers for a quick meal later. To reheat leftovers, thaw completely and heat until warm in the microwave or oven.

    1. You will have to replace it with something. The liquid is needed in the cornbread. You will just have to play with the recipe.
