I think a lot of people have a special place in their hearts for Sloppy Joes 😉 They’re such a childhood favorite, and they bring back lots of good memories. I mean, as a kid, it’s not often that you’re encouraged and even expected to be messy with your food!
While most of us are used to making Sloppy Joes in a skillet, this Sloppy Joe Casserole recipe starts out that way, but then the meat mixture gets combined with tomato sauce, brown sugar and seasonings in a temp-tations 4 quart baker. In fact, you can make it ahead of time, then refrigerate or freeze it, and bake it when you’re ready!
But here’s the really fun part – the meat mixture gets topped with toasted, buttered and salted hamburger buns and then baked until bubbly. It’s really too cute!
Just be sure to have three more hamburger buns toasted, buttered and ready to go – because this generous Sloppy Joe Casserole feeds six.
Want to add a little color and crunch? Top each Sloppy Joe with fresh slices of avocado, and serve with kid-friendly celery and carrot sticks on the side. You’ll get a thumbs-up from everyone at the table.
