Sloppy Joe Cheese Melts

I made some sloppy joe in the crock pot and then realized we didn't have any buns.  YIKES!!  So I  improvised and it turned out great.  It was a nice change from the normal sandwich.
Sloppy Joe Cheese Melts
adapted from Betty Crocker
2 cups Bisquick mix
1 cup milk
1 egg, beaten

Meat mixture or use 1 batch Crockpot Sloppy Joes
1 pound hamburger
1/4 cup chopped green peppers
1/4 cup onion
1 Tablespoon brown sugar
1 1/2 cups ketchup

2 cups shredded cheese

Heat oven to 350 degrees.  Spray a 9 x 13 pan with cooking spray.  In a large bowl stir Bisquick, milk and egg until well mixed.  Pour and spread into the pan.  Bake 15-17 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.  Top will not be brown.
If using the crockpot version, just spread it on top. Skip this step. One less thing to do.
Brown hamburger with the green peppers and onion.  Drain. Stir in ketchup and brown sugar and cook until everything is hot.
Spread hot beef mixture over baked bread base. Sprinkle evenly with cheese.
Return to the oven and bake about 5 minutes longer or until the cheese is melted. Cut into squares.
Hubby was a bit skeptical, but admitted he really liked it!!
Wishing you all a very Happy Mother's Day!!

  1. I wish I had your improvisation skills!!!

  2. Quick thinking! I like it-Happy Weekend:@)

  3. This is just the kind of meal that my kids would like. I like the cheese just covering the top too. Looks delicious. Joni

  4. What an awesome way to reinvent the sloppy joe! I think I saw a recipe for a sloppy joe pizza and this is almost what that is.

  5. I haven't made anything like this in so long! It looks wonderful, and I'm sure my family would appreciate a delicious and fun meal like this. Thanks for the recipe - and it even looks easy!

  6. Oh, can I just remember how MANY nights I look in the fridge, to find out I ran out of hamburger buns.. This is PERFECT for when I'm struggling for an idea for dinner some night. I've always got ground beef in the freezer, and ketchup and shredded cheese in the fridge.. They're pretty much basic staples 'round here, so I really like this recipe!! I'm betting Dear Son will love this too, so thanks for sharing the recipe!.. Happy Mother's Day to you, and have a great weekend! ~tina

  7. Great save! Biscuits, sloppy joes and cheese sounds like pure comfort food.

  8. I like to use bisquick when I cook. I like the looks of the sloppy joes. I think I'll make it too. I am following your blog now. Check our blog out sometime.


  9. Nice! I make a vegetarian sloppy joe, this would work great with it :), Miriam@Meatless Meals For Meat Eaters

  10. Oh looks awesome~ I'm a cheese it even more when it melts..

  11. What a great idea! Now I want to play around with my Angel Biscuit dough and create this yummy dinner. In this house, Honey loves sloppy joes. This should make him happy. thanks.

  12. What a GREAT idea, Tiffanee! I bet that Bisquick layer soaked up all that Sloppy Joe goodness.

    Thank you so much for sharing...Wishing YOU a wonderful Mother's Day!!!

  13. Great idea! It sounds delicious and would make sloppy joes less sloppy as I am always the one to end up with the meat down my shirt :)

  14. Sloppy Joe sounds very delicious, great sharing!
    Happy Mother's day!

Crusty Italian Bread

Do you ever picture yourself eating a slice of Italian bread you know the type with the crunchy outside and soft and delicate inside. Well this is the recipe for you and I have found the secret to getting the perfect crust!! Crusty Italian Bread makes 2 loaves 1 1/3 cups warm water 2 1/4 teaspoons yeast 1 Tablespoon brown sugar 1 1/2 teaspoons salt 1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil 4 cups flour Place warm water, yeast and brown sugar in mixing bowl. Stir and let stand for a few minutes until it start to bubble and foam a bit.  Add olive oil and salt.  Mix and add the flour gradually.  You want to add enough that the dough comes away from the sides of the bowl.  You want to mix it with the dough hook for a few minutes.  Cover and let the dough rise until doubled about 30 minutes. Punch down dough and divide in two and form into two loaves (I doubled the recipe this time.) Cover with a damp cloth and let rise until doubled. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Beat

Blueberry Cream Cheese Bundt Cake

One word for this one: DELICIOUS!!  It is so moist and easy to make.  It did not last long around our house.  My daughter finished the last little bit for breakfast  (she was afraid it would not still be there when she got home). Blueberry Cream Cheese Bundt Cake 1-8 oz. package cream cheese, softened 1/2 cup vegetable oil 1 package white cake mix (mine was vanilla) 1- 3 oz. package instant vanilla pudding mix 4 eggs 2 teaspoons vanilla 2 1/4 cups fresh or frozen, thawed blueberries powdered sugar Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Lightly spray a 9 inch bundt pan with cooking spray. Combine the cream cheese and oil in a medium bowl and beat with a mixer until smooth and creamy. Add the cake mix, pudding mix, eggs and vanilla. Beat at medium speed until blended. Fold in the berries. (Dough will be thick and sticky).  Pour into the prepared pan. Bake for 60 -65 minutes until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean.  Cool the cake on a wire rack for 20 minutes.   Remov

Chicken Cordon Bleu Bundles

Everytime I go to Costco I have been picking up a rotisserie chicken.  I shred all the chicken off the bones and it makes for great easy quick meals. This were the perfect use of it.  They were quick, easy and very delicious!! Chicken Cordon Bleu Bundles Inspired by Dessert Now Dinner Later 2 cans of  crescent rolls 1 package of thin sliced ham (lunch meat)  slices of swiss cheese  2- 2 1/2 cups shredded cooked chicken Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Open the cans of crescent rolls. Separate and unroll the triangles.  You can either work on them all at once or in groups.  I made them in groups of 4. Lightly grease your cookie sheet. . Layer one or two slices of ham, 1 slice of cheese.  Then add a small amount of shredded chicken on top.  Fold the edges of the ham around the cheese and chicken. Starting at the fat end of the triangle, roll the crescent dough around all the fillings as tight as you can and continue rolling to the point of the triangle.
