This Sloppy Joe Casserole is a favorite from my childhood. That sweet and tangy beef gets baked between two layers of flaky pastry with some gooey melted cheese. It's freaking awesome.
Total Time:30 minutes
Yield:4-6 servings 1x
1pound ground beef
Salt and pepper
1 can sloppy joe sauce
1 can crescent rolls
4 slices American cheese
Preheat oven to 375 F (190 C) and lightly spray a 8x8 baking pan with nonstick spray.
Put a large skillet over medium high heat and add the ground beef. Break it up with a wooden spoon and season it with salt and pepper. Continue to cook until completely browned, then drain off the fat and return the meat to the pan. Stir in the can of sloppy joe sauce.
While your beef is browning, unroll half of your crescent roll dough and spread it out on the bottom of your pan. Trim the dough if you need to in order to make it fit. Pop the bottom layer of rolls into the oven to bake while the meat is cooking. Ten minutes is plenty of time. You want them to be just ever so slightly browned.
Take your parbaked layer of rolls back out of the oven and spread the sloppy joe mixture over the top. Arrange your four slices of cheese on top, and then add the other half of the crescent rolls on top.
Put the whole thing in the oven for about 12 minutes or until the crescent rolls are golden brown. Allow to cool for about five minutes before cutting and serving.
