We’re taking the classic summer camp lunch and elevating it to a dinner-worthy casserole. There are few dishes more crowd-pleasing than a sloppy joe recipe, which is why we’re capitalizing on this family favorite and making it even easier to prepare. With its sweet-savory blend of sauce and ground beef, kids are always asking for seconds when this dish is on the menu. It makes us feel great when they ask for seconds, and we love that they’re filling up so that they’ll be energized to tackle the upcoming week. In our homemade sloppy joe casserole recipe, there are a few differences from the typical sandwich—namely, you’ll be losing the buns, and the kids will need to pick up a fork to dig in. It’s just as exciting, though, and it still has all that you remember (and appreciate) about the traditional recipe. It takes what we love about homemade sloppy joes—the flavor, the fun, the easy prep—and turns it into a simple weeknight dinner. The only thing you’ll love more than the reaction from your family is the quick prep time. It brings its own fun to the table. When they’re eating sloppy joe casserole, kids can pretend that they’re at summer camp, even if there’s still geometry homework to do.
