This is one of those Sloppy Joe Casserole recipes that I believe was on the box of a biscuit mix back in the day, as we say. I made it this week one evening when I wanted to use up some ground beef that I had leftover from making this skillet dinner.
Psst. If you have leftover ground beef, be sure to check out my best patty melt recipe.
It is a perfect weeknight dinner recipe that you will want to make often. It's the best flavors of a sloppy joe with a golden-brown crust.
What I love about this recipe is that it is incredibly easy with the help of a sloppy joe sauce. Paired up with a salad and side dish it makes a hearty, inexpensive meal. I also find that the bread layer tastes much better than store-bought buns.
The layers are easy - ground beef goes in first.
Then you top it with some cheese - I use Cheddar.
Then you add the batter for the crust and bake it in the oven.
By the way, this recipe has less carbs than a traditional sloppy joe because there is only bread on one side of the sloppy joe.
This is one of those hamburger casserole recipes that you will want to keep around when you need a quick dinner idea. If you want to make everything from scratch, there is a great recipe for homemade sloppy joe sauce from Ree here.

Yum! I totally love the biscuit batter! And the cheese!
So as for Amazon, I bought a foot peel kit from there. It was amazing, and kinda gross, but mostly amazing.
I love that I can find so many things on Amazon! Gotta check out those pedicure tools!
What a fun way to make sloppy joes! Love the idea of a biscuit topping 🙂
The last thing I bought on Amazon that I loved was probably books, I can never have too many books 🙂
Ha no, you can never had too many books! I love reading your reviews Ashley!

I love that you only have one bread layer. I usually have to throw some away because I don't want all the bread. Can't wait to give this recipe a try!
Thanks Betsy - yes it is definitely less bread-y than the old school sloppy joe's.
