EASY SLOPPY JOE CASSEROLE
This was awesome I left out the ground beef, onion and bell peppers, also I substituted a flatbread for the pasta and mozzarella cheese for the cheddar. I also added pepperoni and anchovies to my pizza…casserole
Sloppy Joes and Tater Tots are the stuff childhood food memories are made of. And when they’re united in one cheesy, sinfully delicious casserole? Well, that’s the stuff dreams are made of. This quick bake is comforting and convenient and it’s just the kind of thing we like to make when we want a meal that we know will taste amazing but is also just kinda fun. Whether you’re a kid of 5 or 99, this Sloppy Joe Tater Tot Casserole will bring a smile to your face. And your stomach.
It was so easy to make and everyone loved it. 🙂 The only thing I did different was taking out the bell peppers and brown sugar. I added everything else and it came out really good. Oh and I add more cheese when it came out of the oven. 🙂 Well I hope everyone enjoys this simple but tasty dish. 😀
It’s a simple thing to throw together. You brown up some ground beef and simmer it briefly with tomato sauce, mustard, sugar, and Worcestershire to make up a quick and tasty Sloppy Joe sauce. Then you just layer up some tater tots, the Sloppy Joe mixture, cheese, more tots, and more cheese in a casserole dish and bake it until it’s bubbly and crispy and melty. It’s hearty, it’s easy, but best of all, it tastes GOOD.
My husband loved it and told me not to lose the recipe. I used Ro-Tel diced tomatoes with green chilis and replaced the ketchup with a can of tomato soup + 1/2 can water. For the peppers, I used some hot peppers we had grown in our garden and frozen.
