Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spray a 9x13-inch baking dish with cooking spray.

  • Cook and stir the ground beef in a skillet over medium heat, breaking it up as it cooks, until the meat is no longer pink, about 10 minutes. Drain off any excess fat, and mix the sloppy joe sauce into the cooked meat.

  • Unroll a can of crescent rolls, and pinch the triangles together to form a single sheet of dough. Lay the dough into the bottom of the prepared baking dish. Spread the meat and sauce mixture in an even layer over the dough, and sprinkle the Cheddar cheese over the meat mixture. Unroll the second can of rolls, pinch the triangles together to make a single sheet of dough as before, and place the dough over the cheese.

  • Bake the casserole in the preheated oven until the top sheet of dough is golden brown, 15 to 20 minutes.

It was good but I found the bottom crust a little doughy, next time I think I will pre-cook the bottom before adding the meat mixture cheese and top crust. Read More

It was ok. Took about 25 -30 min for the rolls to cook on top. The biscuits took over the taste of the sloppy joe. I would suggest doubling the meat & cheese amount because it wasnt thick enough. I think maybe a better way would be to individually wrap the buscuits around the meat & cook them that way to me it was just too much of a roll taste. Read More

I did not have sloppy joe mix on hand so instead I mixed in 2 small (8oz. each) cans of tomato paste with the browned ground beef along with some frozen chopped onion and a few basic spices - basil oregano and a little salt & pepper. I also baked the bottom crescent layer for about 5 mins. while the filling was cooking to ensure it would not be doughy and then I baked the whole thing about 23 minutes. All in all very tasty!!

Made this into a pie using one can of the reduced fat crescent rolls as the bottom layer. (Pre-cooked for about 5 minutes) Then topped it with ground turkey and just used bbq sauce. To give it a little more substance and to squeeze in some veggies I added a can of kidney beans corn and red pepper. Topped with a blend of reduced fat gruyere and cheddar. My family loved it. There was none left. Read More

I used to make this YEARS ago when my kids were school age (the 80's) and they loved it! When I made it recently I put it on a cookie sheet and used only 1 can of sloppy joe mix. (live by myself) It turned out really nice and I shared with a bachelor neighbor who is a BAD cook (LOL) and he really liked it! Thanks for the memory! Read More

I like this quick and simple recipe. I added more meat because the dough overtook the meat the first time. Other than that it's a great quickie recipe! Read More

I liked this one the first time I made it and so I made it again but the 2nd time I accidentally bought regular crescent rolls instead of the reduced fat and I dont know why but it made a difference to me. I think with the regular ones you get fluffier dough and it was too much. I do suggest making it with the reduced fat crescent rolls and after making it a few more times at my family's request I am already tired of this one and will probably just stick to regular sloppy joes from now on.
