We’re twisting it up a bit by preparing Sloppy Joe in a casserole. With the same beefy tomato feeling and a cheesy crust, this recipe makes a quick and satisfying weeknight dinner that everyone will love. It is so easy to make that you can even make a huge batch to serve for taco night with friends.

HOW TO MAKE SLOPPY JOE CASSEROLE

Step 1: Prepare the oven by preheating it to 400 degrees F.

Step 2: Cook the ground beef in a large skillet over medium heat until browned. Add the diced onion and bell pepper. Saute for about 5 minutes until tender. Mix in the brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce, dry mustard, and garlic salt. Then stir in the tomato sauce and ketchup. Mix until well combined. Lower the heat and let it simmer.

Step 3: Meanwhile, prepare the topping by adding the flour, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl. Whisk in the milk, melted butter, and eggs. Mix until all the ingredients are well incorporated. Then, fold in the shredded cheese.

Step 4: Carefully pour the meat mixture into a 13 x 9-inch baking dish. Evenly spread the topping over the meat mixture. Place inside the oven and bake at 400 degrees F for 25-30 minutes or until the crust is light golden brown. Serve immediately. Enjoy!
