Sloppy Joe Casserole

Get ready for a laid-back trip down memory lane with our Sloppy Joe Casserole. This isn’t your grandma’s recipe – we’ve just made it a bit neater and easier. It’s the kind of meal that takes you back to the simple, good times around the family table.

Imagine all the familiar flavors of Sloppy Joes, but in a tidy casserole form. No mess, no fuss, just pure comfort on a plate. And the best part? It won’t take forever to make.

Start by browning a pound of ground beef in a pan. Toss in some onions, bell peppers, and garlic until they’re nice and soft. Then, stir in ketchup, tomato paste, brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, chili powder, salt, and pepper. Let it all simmer until it thickens up.

While that’s bubbling away, grab a can of refrigerated biscuit dough. Cut it into pieces – no need for perfection here. Now, transfer the Sloppy Joe mix into a baking dish. Sprinkle some shredded cheddar cheese on top, and artfully arrange the biscuit pieces.

Pop it all into the oven for about 20-25 minutes, or until the biscuits are golden and the cheese is doing that gooey dance. Once it’s out, let it chill for a bit – like, 5 minutes. This isn’t a fancy affair, just enough time for the flavors to settle.

And that’s it. No culinary acrobatics, no high-stakes drama, just a down-to-earth Sloppy Joe Casserole ready to bring a smile to your face. Serve it warm, share with loved ones, and enjoy the uncomplicated joy of good food.
