Sloppy Joe Biscuit Casserole

More comfort food to share with you all today. Growing up I actually did not like Sloppy Joe’s because they always had pieces of green pepper in them that I just did not like. Now though I can make homemade Sloppy Joe’s and put in whatever I want and leave out whatever I want. This means no green peppers in mine! Yay! The recipe I actually use is for Neat Sloppy Joe’s from AllRecipes that I found quite some time ago. I pretty much go by that recipe except that I usually add a minced up carrot in it as well and last night I added some spicy tomato paste too for an extra kick! Oh and I sauté the onions, celery, and carrot in a bit of olive oil before I put in the ground beef because that way they are soft. I’m not sharing an actual recipe for the Sloppy Joe part though because you can use any version you and your family like.


Start with preparing your favorite Sloppy Joe recipe. You do not want it super wet though so cook it down a bit more if you need to. Place in casserole dish.


Sprinkle some sharp cheddar cheese over the top. I used maybe 1/4 of a cup (if that) here. You do not want to go overboard because it will make it greasy.


Now top with your favorite uncooked refrigerator biscuits. I used Pillsbury Grand Biscuits last night because Hubby likes those. You can really use any kind of those little canned biscuits you like though.


Sprinkle with a little more sharp cheddar cheese on top. I used less than 1/4 cup here also. Now bake according to the package directions for the biscuits but add on another 4-7 minutes so that the biscuits cook through from the bottom also.


That is all there is to it! Hubby said he liked it this way better than on a regular hamburger bun even. You can adjust the amounts to whatever you need for your family size.


I did a Sloppy Joe Braid a while back too that you also might like. Same kind of concept, but you use a sheet of refrigerator dough and put the Sloppy Joe mixture on it and then criss-cross the dough over the top.

I served our Sloppy Joe Biscuit casserole with tator tots (Hubby’s favorite but I do not eat them at all) that I cooked in my AirFryer, plus some steamed edamame.

Would your family enjoy this casserole? What would you serve it with?

I think we would like the casserole. The biscuits and cheese on top make it extra appealing. I would serve it with a big green salad.

Yep who doesn’t love cheesy bread?

I think that would be good. With a beer! The hubster would turn his nose up, however. The prince does not eat cassaroles as a rule, you see.

Not even sloppy joes? My my your prince is quite picky! My Hubby would agree with you on serving this with a beer!

Oh yes, casseroles are banned. Mostly because they would have corn, peas, beans – all forbidden veggies. It’s hard to feed him sometimes.

Well he might like this then – no corns, peas, or beans in it! :-)

My whole family would eat this. Thank you for showcasing the recipe.

We would give it a try! We like sloppy joes but I dont make them much. They are sloppy! I would skip the carrot in it and I would up thee onons! I would likely serve this with a winter vegetable mix (te kind with cauliflower broccoli in it) we have been on a cauliflower kick.

10 Robyn Wright April 7, 2014 at 9:13 pm

Since this is an eat with a fork dish they become much less sloppy for sure. Wow – that’s a lot of onions! I like the winter mix veggies too and we love cauliflower. I’m making a warm cauliflower salad this week and will be sharing the recipe here on my blog – stay tuned!

I would love to try this using homemade biscuits. I’ve only made sloppy joes on buns so far.

OOH! These look delish! I bet they’d be good with crescent dough on top too!
