Sloppy Joe Pot Pie

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
  1. 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.
  2. Add sloppy joe sauce to the meat and stir to combine. Remove from the heat and sprinkle with 1 cup of the cheddar cheese.
  3. In a small bowl, mix together the baking mix, milk and egg until combined.  Pour over the beef mixture.
  4. Place the skillet in the oven and bake at 400 degrees for 30 minutes or until golden.
  5. Remove fro  the oven and sprinkle with the remaining 1/4 cup of cheese.  Makes 4-5 servings.

  • To print these recipe’s You have about 5 sheets to get the recipe. Can’t you just give the recipe out alone?

    • Mary, if you want a recipe, put your cursor over the beginning of the recipe and drag it down to where the recipe ends. Click Control P at the same time. When the print screen comes up, you will have a chance to print the high-lighted area that way it shouldn’t come out to 5 pages. I hope this works for you!

  • Made this tonight . I would double the sauce because the crust sucks it up when cooking . I added the extra cheese to the crust mixture . All in all not bad

  • I made this tonight. It was wonderful. Everyone enjoyed it, even the picky eaters. I substituted McCormicks sloppy joe seasoning instead of Manwich. Yummy

  • This looks great! I think I will try making this for dinner tonight.

  • This sounds great. Funny one of my daughter’s friends always shows up on the day I fix Manwich…I mean every time. I know she thinks that is all I ever cook, LOL. But this sounds easy and delicious, we love Manwich around here.

  • I already have the sloppy joe meat frozen in the freezer. This will be so easy. Thanks for the great idea!

  • I’ll be making this tonight! I have a pound of ground beef in my fridge that has been longing to find its purpose in life 😉
