I was invited to the Disney Social Media Mom’s Conference for their land and sea celebration. We spent 3 nights at Walt Disney World and then 3 nights on the Disney Wonder Cruise line. I took my husband for a little fun and relaxation. We got home late last night and now I feel like I need a vacation from my vacation.

Do you ever feel like that after a big trip?

Luckily, I’m well equipped with one skillet dinner recipes on my site, which are perfect for Mondays and the day-after vacations.

I made this delicious casserole style skillet before we left on our trip and my kids (including my husband and myself) thoroughly enjoyed this one!

I created a delicious sloppy joe base and then topped it all with some frozen tater tots and popped it in the oven.

Now, if you don’t have an oven safe skillet, you can definitely transfer the sloppy joe mixture to a casserole dish and go from there. But I HIGHLY recommend investing in a cast iron skillet. They’re not too expensive, but they are definitely versatile and great for cooking with.

Once your tater tots are browned and crispy, you’ll cover the whole thing with cheese and then pop it back in the oven till it’s nice and melty.

The sloppy joe sauce has the perfect sweet and savory combination, and I’ve pumped it full of onions and peppers to give it some extra veggies. You could even throw in some frozen peas to add even a little more if you want!

      To EG: To Shawn’s recipe, I added an 8 oz can tomato sauce, upped the Worcestershire to 1 Tbs, and added 1 Tbs apple cider vinegar. It was very moist and not too sweet.
