Sloppy Joe Pot Pie

This sloppy joe pot pie is perfect for busy nights when you want to get something on the table that you know your kids will devour!

Can we talk about something that is near and dear to my heart?

Sloppy Joes.

I know. Such a weird thing to love as fiercely as I do, but I think it has something to do with the fact that I was DEPRIVED AS A CHILD.

Sure, I had a nice house, warm clothing with all the right labels, and more toys than one kid could need, but my mother never, not once, made me a sloppy joe for dinner.

In fact, I was an adult the first time I ever ate a sloppy joe. Grown, married, and with a child of my own.

Y’all. Sloppy joes are a thing in my house. I am making up for lost time. We eat them regularly and my kids obviously love it. What kind of kid doesn’t love sweet, tangy beef on a sandwich bun?!

Anyway, I love the flavors in traditional sloppy joes so much that I like to experiment with new ideas a bit. Take my sloppy joe dip for instance. Or my sloppy joe stuffed peppers. Orrrrr, how about my sloppy joe casserole with a cornbread base? I’m obsessed.

So, I took things a step further and made this sloppy joe pot pie. It’s good stuff.

My kids love it and it’s perfect for those nights when you’re craving a sloppy joe but you don’t have any sandwich buns on hand. I mean, who doesn’t have canned biscuits sitting around in the back of the fridge for emergencies? (If you don’t, give this a try with my dad’s famous homemade biscuits – they turn out perfect every time!)

Okay, friends. Go forth and feed your kid sloppy joes. I insist.
