Sloppy Joe Pie
Total TimePrep: 30 min. Bake: 20 min.
- 1 pound ground beef
- 1/2 cup chopped onion
- 1 can (8 ounces) tomato sauce
- 1 can (8-3/4 ounces) whole kernel corn, drained
- 1/4 cup water
- 1 envelope sloppy joe mix
- 2 tubes (6 ounces each) refrigerated buttermilk biscuits
- 2 tablespoons whole milk
- 1/3 cup cornmeal
- 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese, divided
- Minced fresh parsley, optional
- Preheat oven to 375°. In a large skillet, cook beef and onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Stir in 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.
- Separate biscuits; flatten each to a 3-1/2-in. circle. Place milk and cornmeal in separate shallow bowls; dip both sides into milk and then into cornmeal. Place seven biscuits around the sides and three on the bottom of an ungreased 9-in. pie plate.
- Press biscuits together to form a crust, leaving a scalloped edge around rim. Sprinkle with 1/2 cup cheese. Spoon meat mixture over cheese.
- Bake until crust is deep golden brown 20-25 minutes. Sprinkle with remaining cheese and, if desired, fresh parsley. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.

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!

Delicious and more filling than normal sloppy joes. Was even better tasting as leftovers! My friend who is a VERY picky eater even enjoyed this!

I'm sorry to say this wasn't enjoyed by my family when I made it in summer, 2009. I threw out the remainder.
