This is an easy to make Sloppy Joe Casserole that is perfect for a busy family on the go! If you love sloppy joes, and who doesn’t, this is a way to make them fast!
The thing I like the most about fall is being able to turn on my oven. During the summer months I never turn my oven on. Like never, ever, ever. Nope. Not going to happen. Our a/c blows, and not in a good way so from about May/June till about September/October that sucker stays off. If it’s hot out I’m grilling. While I love to grill I also love to bake, roast and just plain old broil things. So it’s nice to finally have weather where I can turn on the oven and get creative.
Mini-me went shopping state-side last week with boytoy, and his mom. She goes over any Friday she has off from work. I give her a budget to stay within for groceries and she does my shopping for me. Not a bad deal right. I usually requests weird baking items. This is what transpired before the trip!
Mini-Me: I’m going to the states tomorrow so make a list.
Me: Score, making a list.
MM: Essentials mom, stuff we need.
Me: M’kay, essentials only! Got it!

I got nothing! Nada. Zilch. Zip. She came home with essentials. But not my essentials. Dang kid.
Usually she’s pretty good. One time she scored me a really nice cake stand. Sometimes she scores me really cool spices. This time I got squat. She came home with actual groceries. The horror of it all!
One of the things she picked was Manwich. This was odd as she doesn’t eat Manwich. We eat sloppy joes but she’s not a fan. I asked her what was up, and she said it was a really good sale so she grabbed a few. Never one to waste an opportunity to eat a favourite meal from my childhood I decided it was game on. I wanted to shake it up though, make it a bit different.
She had also picked up these really cool Pillsbury Garlic Crescent Rolls. I’ve not seen them in Canada so I just had to figure out a way to use them. One thing led to another and this is what I came up with for dinner. I’ll let you in on a little secret. This flipping casserole is amazing. I mean “eat the whole pan of it in one sitting” good. I could not get enough of this stuff. You must try it as soon as possible. Just make sure you get your stretchy pants on before you strap on the old feedbag. You’re going to need them.

I kid you not people, this casserole is seriously addictive. It’s almost like a sloppy joe lasagna. Oh em gee, now I want a sloppy joe lasagna. I need more Manwich now. In the meantime I’ll polish of the one piece of this I hide so no one else would eat it. You gotta do what you gotta do.
Sloppy, messy and sheer perfection while shoving it into your pie hole as fast as humanly possible. You’re going to love this one. It’s perfect for one of those busy days where you want dinner in under 30 minutes.

Thanks for hanging in there while I took some much-needed time off. I love you guys.
