School is back in session so easy weeknight dinners that come together in less than 30 minutes are my absolute favorite.

The first thing you’ll want to do is quickly brown some ground beef in a skillet with some onions and green bell peppers.

I used a can of sloppy jo sauce that I had in my pantry to make this dish extra saucy, but I’ve got a great homemade sauce recipe below in case you’re wanting to make your own! I don’t mind using the canned stuff every once in a while though, it’s just so easy.

Once the sloppy jo mixture is ready, you can whip up some Martha White sweet yellow cornbread mix to top the beef.

The I just poured it over the top of that gorgeous sloppy jo mixture and popped it in the oven to bake.

You’ll want to make sure your skillet is oven safe before you start. If you don’t have one, you can just transfer the sloppy jo mixture into a casserole dish and top with the cornbread mix before baking. It’s two dishes, but still worth it.

    I made it for the first time for a potluck dinner at our bowling alley with friends it turned out beautifully everybody loved it it takes the place of putting the sloppy Joe’s in a bun so now you have one meal all in one withthe corn bread

  2. Winnie

    Made this last night and it was a hit and so easy! I love that we have leftovers as well. I couldn’t find that brand of corn muffin mix, but small boxed one I found worked perfectly. Thank you!

  3. Amie

    Made this tonight and it was amazing!! It is impossible to mess up. We even doubled the recipe but used only one can of manwich. Cornbread was perfect and we used the .79 brand in the blue box. Love this!!

    I have NEVER liked sloppy joes, but I eat them when I make them. Until now…….I LOVE this recipe! It’s delicious and there are NEVER any leftovers!! Thank you!!

    Hands down horrible recipe. The corn bread mix just soaks into the mix. You don’t just simply “pour the corn bread mix over it” this is the second recipe I’ve made from Shawn and it’s also the second recipe that has turned out horrible. I will no longer be sharing these recipes and I will no longer be making any of them. For the second time I have wasted money on food and have had to throw away the food because it does not turn out the way the instructions say so. Horrible recipe.

    1. Hi “Mom”, I’m sorry you’re having trouble with this recipe. I’m not sure how you ran into a problem of the cornbread “soaking into the mix?” The only thing I can think of is you added too much milk to the cornbread mix. I make this recipe several times and it always comes out perfect. For the record, my mom has made this recipe and she loves it, so I’m pretty sure this is an imposter. Either way, I hope you give it another try, it really is super good. 🙂

      1. SarahN

        It almost sounds like she just poured the dry mix over the sloppy joe without adding the eggs and milk? I haven’t tried this recipe yet, but I plan too. I’ve tried many of your recipes and I’m a huge fan!

    I make a similar recipe but I do browned & drained hamburger, can drained sweet corn, can of drained light red kidney beans, jar of salsa (mild to spicy your preference) and pkg of taco season mix together then pour cornbread mix (prepared as stated on pkg) over top and bake till cornbread browned.

      1. DeAnne Riley

        Buy a package of cornmeal in baking aisle. It should have recipe for cornbread on the pkg. If not try mfg website or Quaker. Or other internet recipe sites. Recipes with some white flour make a softer, less gritty product.
