Sloppy Joe Cornbread Casserole

Sloppy Joe Cornbread Casserole


  • 1 package ground beef
  • 1 can Manwich (I used the original flavor)
  • 1 can corn, drained
  • 1 package Jiffy cornbread mix
  • 1 egg and milk (as per the Jiffy cornbread package instructions)
  • Shredded cheese (as desired)


Preheat the Oven:

  1. Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C).

Prepare the Cornbread Base:

  1. Prepare the Jiffy cornbread mix according to the package instructions, which typically involves adding an egg and milk to the mix.
  2. Once your cornbread batter is ready, fold in the drained canned corn and add shredded cheese. You can adjust the amounts based on your pan size and personal preference.
  3. Pour the cornbread mixture into a greased baking dish. The size of the dish can vary depending on how thick you’d like the cornbread layer to be.
  4. Bake the cornbread base in the preheated oven for about 10 minutes. This will help set the base before adding the Sloppy Joe topping.

Prepare the Sloppy Joe Topping:

  1. While the cornbread is in the oven, brown the ground beef in a skillet. Once cooked, drain any excess grease.
  2. Stir in the can of Manwich (Sloppy Joe sauce) into the cooked ground beef. Let the mixture simmer briefly to heat the sauce and combine flavors.

Assemble the Casserole:

  1. Remove the partially baked cornbread base from the oven.
  2. Spread the Sloppy Joe mixture evenly over the cornbread base.
  3. Top the Sloppy Joe mixture with shredded cheese, as much as you like.

Bake the Casserole:

  1. Return the assembled casserole to the oven and bake for an additional 10 minutes, or until the cornbread is fully baked and the cheese is melted and bubbly.
  2. Once done, remove it from the oven, let it cool slightly, and then serve this delightful Sloppy Joe Cornbread Casserole.

Enjoy your savory and comforting casserole! 😋
