Cornbread Sloppy Joe Casserole

I found the basis for this recipe on the back of a “Manwich Sloppy Joe” sauce.  It will work well with just about any type of left over meat or ground beef.  If your going to use ground beef you should figure on at least 8 ounces per person and 2 pounds + 1 large can of sloppy joe = 4 servings.  It is a relatively easy to make recipe and is quite filling.

Ingredients for Cornbread Sloppy Joe Casserole

Serves 2-4 persons

  1. 2 pounds ground beef
  2. 1 medium onion finely chopped
  3. 2 stalks celery finely chopped
  4. 1 large can sloppy joe sauce
  5. 1 bx Jiffy corn muffin mix
  6. 1 egg
  7. 1/3 cup milk
  8. 4-5 Tbs butter


Directions for Cornbread Sloppy Joe Casserole

Preheat oven to 400º

Liberally grease a 9 x9 inch baking pan with the 2-3 Tbs of butter.

In a large saute pan with 2-3 tbs of butter saute the onion and celery until soft.  When the vegetables begin to soften add the ground beef and brown. 

Once the beef is cooked (if the pan is large enough, mix in pan or transfer beef to a large bowl) add the sloppy joe sauce and mix completely.  Pour into the greased baking pan.

In a large bowl combine the muffin mix egg and milk and stir until combined and fairly smooth.  The mix will be slightly lumpy but that’s OK.

Spoon the cornbread over the top of the ground beef covering it completely.

Bake for 25 minutes until the cornbread has risen and is slightly browned on top.
