This homemade sloppy joes recipe is topped with cornbread by Catherine’s Plates on YouTube that made all in one skillet. I haven’t had sloppy joes in a long time, but I think the combination of cornbread in a casserole form would taste delicious. It’s a nice ground beef dinner meal idea too. It’s a comfort meal that can be served with any side such as baked beans. I love the idea of adding real corn kernels to the cornbread mixture. The cornbread topping makes this a perfect dinner meal without having to make other items too. It’s hearty and filling.
First, preheat the oven to 400 degrees. In a large ovenproof skillet, melt butter and oil over medium-high heat. Saute the peppers and onions until softened. Add the ground beef and cook until brown. Drain any excess fat. Continue to watch Catherine’s Plates tutorial on YouTube for full instructions and details.
Next, pour the cornbread topping mixture on top of the Sloppy Joe mixture. Place the skillet or casserole dish into the oven and bake for 15-20 minutes until cornbread is cooked through. Let it cool for 5 minutes before serving.
Note: if you do not have an ovenproof skillet, cook it on a regular skillet and transfer it into a casserole dish. I love sloppy joes and cornbread, but I’ve never had the 2 together. I can’t wait to try this ground beef recipe.
