Rather than eating sloppy joes on a bun, like one typically does, my boys prefer to deconstruct their sloppy joes and eat the meat with a spoon.
Since they also love cornbread, I figured this was an opportunity to try something new!
And thus, sloppy joe pie was born.
The cornbread and sloppy joe mix blend together beautifully, plus I love the gooey cheese layer in between! The only thing I missed was the pickles – and those are best added at the end anyway!
Sloppy Joe Pie
1 cup sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
1 (8.5 oz) package cornbread mix, prepared
Pickles, to serve, optional
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
Pour the sloppy joe mixture into a pie plate and sprinkle the shredded cheddar over the top. Carefully spread the cornbread batter over the top.
Place in the oven and bake for 10-12 minutes or until the cornbread is cooked through and the sauce is bubbling around the edges. Cut into wedges and serve.
