Meet the Cook: To be honest, I don't hear many compliments on this dish...folks are always too busy eating! I developed the recipe by grabbing ingredients from my refrigerator and cupboards one "crunch time" when I needed an easy dish fast. Last year, my husband and I retired from the grocery business - we'd run three rural supermarkets. Now, we're back in school as full-time students. -Kathy McCreary, Goddard, Kansas

  1. In a large skillet, cook beef and onion over medium heat until no meat is no longer pink; drain. Stir in the tomato sauce, corn, water and sloppy joe seasoning; cook over medium heat until bubbly. Reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes; remove from heat and set aside.

"I've been making this recipe for about 20 years now.. it's my husband's (and my family's) absolute favorite... the first time I made it for him he told me he knew for sure that I loved him... lol. Great recipe!"

"This is recipe that goes together quickly and can be on the table in well under an hour, so makes for a great weeknight meal. And it's a good "jumping off point" recipe--you can make adjustments to the ingredients and have a variety of tastes. Tonight, I didn't have sloppy joe sauce or mix, so I went with a more barbecue sauce--ketchup, bottled barbecue sauce, chili powder, onion and garlic powder, black pepper, and basil. I omitted the corn, just because that seemed odd to me in such a dense tomato-ey sauce, and I was out of cheddar cheese so I subbed an Italian blend. It was great! I think any thick tomato-based sauce would be good with the cornmealed-biscuit crust."

"I altered this recipe to use what I had in my cupboard: I used the called for ground beef and onion, but I used canned sloppy joe mix and crushed tortilla chips instead of cornmeal. I also put the extra biscuit dough over the top of the meat mixture. Turned out great and my husband said this recipe is a "keeper.""

"This was quick and simple to make .. Loved the twist on bread into cornbread taste for pie crust. This was a good dish made as recipe calls for .. does need a little more umph! for my personal taste. My son and couple co-workers loved this as is ... does yield a large amount & doesn't take much of this hearty pie to fill up! Looking forward to making again and playing w/ingredients just a smidge!"
