Hearty and easy to make Sloppy Joe Cornbread Casserole for the whole family to enjoy. Not messy and easy cleanup

I love making casseroles of any kind. Easy to make, you can have more than one meal from it and it’s great for feeding a crowd. There is just something so hardy about a casserole on a cold day. One of my hubby’s favorite is Sloppy Joe Cornbread Casserole.

I must confess. I recently bought my first cast iron skillet by Lodge and I couldn’t be happier. I lived in the south most of my life and never had my own cast-iron skillet.

Reasons why I didn’t purchase a cast-iron skillet before:

  • The skillet wouldn’t cook evenly on my smooth surface stove
  • Hard to keep clean
  • Would rust easily

I was wrong on every count and reasons I shouldn’t have been worried about.

I should’ve listened to my Georgia raised husband in the first place. (But don’t tell him I said that)

This recipe was super easy to make and the ingredients can be as simple as you like. You could make your own Sloppy Joe Sauce and cornbread, but if you are in a hurry, use a box of Jiffy mix and canned Sloppy Joe Mix.

What I love most about this recipe is that it’s not as messy as a regular sloppy joe sandwich. Just serve with a side salad and you have a great meal for the family. With less clean up of not only the table but the kids too.

Sloppy Joe Cornbread Casserole

Prep Time30 mins
Cook Time30 mins
Total Time1 hr
Course: Casserole
Cuisine: American

Ingredients

  • 1 8 1/2-ounce box corn muffin mix
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar divided
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1 14 3/4-ounce can cream-style corn
  • 24 ounce can sloppy joe sauce or homemade, divided
  • 1 pound ground beef or turkey
  • 1/2 onion chopped
  • 1 bell pepper any color

Instructions

  • Heat the oven to 400 degrees. While the oven is heating up, place your 10" cast iron skillet in the oven to heat up.
  • In a medium-sized bowl, add the cornbread mix, 1/2 cup of cheddar cheese, milk, egg, and canned corn. Stir until well combined.
  • When the oven is heated, carefully take out the skillet, pour in the cornbread mixture, and bake for 15 minutes.
  • Dice the onion and pepper and add to a large skillet with the butter. Cook until softened.
  • Add the ground beef to the skillet and cook through. Drain the fat. (I usually use 90/10 percent fat ground beef and there usually isn't any fat to drain off).
  • Add all but 1/2 cup of the sloppy joe sauce to the pan with the meat to warm.
  • Remove the cornbread from the oven and use a fork to prick holes over the cornbread. Pour the remaining 1/2 cup of the sloppy joe sauce over the cornbread.
  • Spoon the meat and sauce over the baked cornbread and top with the remaining cheese. Return to the oven for 15 minutes.
