Sloppy Joe Pie
Total TimePrep: 30 min. Bake: 20 min.
Easy to make. My husband loved it!
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.
This is so easy & a nice change from regular sloppy joes or tacos..my family loved it!
