This dinner is a breeze to put together and no buns required. I adapted this recipe from one I found on Betty Crocker. I thought a pot pie version of a sloppy joe sounded like a nice twist on a classic go to meal. I also usually always have all the items in this recipe on hand.
The recipe is also wonderful because it’s all made in one dish, an oven proof skillet. Now if you don’t have an oven proof skillet, you could just place it in a casserole dish to bake and be just fine. That just means you would have 2 dishes to clean.
My family loved this dish. However, my hubby and boys were all wishing for more meat with the light and fluffy pot pie topping. So next time I make this, I may up the beef to 1 1/2 pounds and mix in a cup of barbecue sauce to compensate for it or you could always half the topping recipe if you want to half an egg to do it.
Sloppy Joe Pot Pie
- 1 lb ground beef (I think ground turkey or chicken would also work well)
- 1/2 onion, diced
- 1 (15 1/2 oz.) can of sloppy joe sauce (like Manwich)
- 1 1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese, divided
- 1 cup baking mix (like Bisquick)
- 1/2 cup milk (I used skim)
- 1 egg
- Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. In an 10-inch oven proof skillet (mine is more like 12-inch), brown the beef and onion together until beef is no longer pink and onion is tender; drain.
- Add sloppy joe sauce to the meat and stir to combine. Remove from the heat and sprinkle with 1 cup of the cheddar cheese.
- In a small bowl, mix together the baking mix, milk and egg until combined. Pour over the beef mixture.
- Place the skillet in the oven and bake at 400 degrees for 30 minutes or until golden.
- Remove fro the oven and sprinkle with the remaining 1/4 cup of cheese. Makes 4-5 servings.
