Sloppy Joe Casserole 2

This is the second Sloppy Joe Casserole I’ve made, and my goodness, if I thought the other one was good…this one is just pure heaven. It’s a savory Sloppy Joe with a cheesy dumpling-like crust on top. Everyone agreed, next time I make it I have to make a double recipe. I had to carefully portion out the meager leftovers the next day. ;)

I found this recipe online, and it is credited to a woman named Darlyne Cole. The changes I made to it were minimal: I used ground turkey instead of hamburg, replaced the garlic powder with fresh garlic, increased the Worcestershire sauce, left out the dry mustard, and added carrots. They work so well with this and boost the nutrition.

So, let’s get cooking!

First, dice the onion, green pepper, and carrots (diced small). Mince the garlic.

In a large skillet, brown the ground turkey with the diced carrots, stirring as needed.

After about five minutes, add the onion, green pepper, and garlic, cooking until tender, maybe about five minutes.

Add the tomato sauce, ketchup, brown sugar, and Worcestershire sauce. Stir, turn heat to low, and simmer while you prepare the topping.

Grate the sharp cheddar cheese and set aside.

Now, mix together the flour, baking powder, and salt in a mixing bowl. Add the melted butter, beaten eggs, and milk. Whisk together until just mixed.

Fold in the sharp cheddar cheese. I always use extra sharp for the great taste.

Pour the Sloppy Joe mixture into a 9 X 13 baking dish. You don’t need to grease it.

Stir the topping again just a little bit, and spread on top.

If you had a little extra shredded cheese left over, sprinkle it on top like I did.

Bake at 375° for 25-30 minutes, until lightly browned on top. Enjoy! ~TMMF
