Looking for a comforting dinner to serve your family on a chilly night? Try my Sloppy Joe Casserole tonight – it’s quick, easy and so delicious.

My family loves Sloppy Joe’s. It’s a quick and easy meal that takes just a few minutes to throw together. Over the years we’ve made a variety of meals with the Sloppy Joe meat sauce. One of our favorites is my Sloppy Joe Goulash and now, this Sloppy Joe Casserole.

It will definitely become a regular on our menu plan!

But, since we’re coming in to the final stretch of our move (we’re expecting to close on our new house in less than a week), we’ve been eating out of the pantry and freezer a lot lately.

I’m trying to empty things out so we don’t have to box up tons of food to make the 5 hour trek to our new home.

Plus, it’ll be kind of fun to stock up our new kitchen.

Anyway, that’s how I ended up with this delicious recipe. I had planned to make my Barbecue Shepherd’s Pie and realized that I didn’t have all the ingredients necessary, so I turned it into this Sloppy Joe Casserole instead.

My family loved it and if you like Sloppy Joe’s, you’re going to love it, too!

Here’s the recipe –
