Easy Sloppy Joe Casserole

Sharing is caring!

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.

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.
This is a great ground beef casserole recipe to make on a busy evening. Full of hearty flavor!
Then you top it with some cheese – I use Cheddar.

Then you add the batter for the crust and bake it in the oven.

This is a great ground beef casserole recipe to make on a busy evening. So tasty and inexpensive too!


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.
