  1. This looks delish!! I wish it was one that could cook all day while I am at work! I will have make it over the weekend 🙂 Thanks for posting!

  2. Looks good! I see you spray your crock pot. If you haven't tried the crock pot liners, this would be a good dish to use them on. They can be found in the foil aisle and I will never be without them.

    • Ya know, I have tried those and they are neat. I just don't always remember to pick them up and I always have nonstick spray on hand. They do make cleanup super easy though!

    • Hi Kay! I think anything light would work great since the casserole is very filling. I just served it with some steamed veggies (squash and zucchini) or maybe a salad? I try to get some veggies in though with every meal.

  3. I know before I even make this my husband is going to love this. I'm going to throw some chopped green peppers in it too! Thanks!

  4. YUM! I love sloppy joe! (and cheese, and potatoes…and my crock pot. I think we have a winner!)

  5. That's very close to my shepherd's pie recipe. I use mashed potatoes with some canned veggies (peas,carrots,corn)mixed in , then topped with the sloppy' beef which is then topped with cheez slices,covered and baked @350 for 45min. I put it together in a bread loaf pan or a 9×13 dish. If you want to soup it up add a small jar of mild or medium salsa to the beef.

  6. I struggle with naming recipes too, I desire to have cute names, but the people gotta know what's in the recipe; if they don't know, they're probably not gonna stop by to read it!
    So I'm just gonna say that your recipe is aptly named and looks totally yummy!

  7. I enjoy reading your recipes, and seeing how simple most of them are, and even though I am retired now, I still search for the easiest so I have time for other things in my life. Thanks for sharing all these!

  8. My daughter loves sloppy joes and would love this. However, she can not have gluten and the cheddar cheese soup contains wheat. I have never tried it so I'm not sure what to use in it's place. Do you know what I could use in place of the soup?

  9. I didn't have any type of hash browns in hand, so I totally used a small bag of French fries lol. It's still cooking so we'll see what happens. P.S. I like the name, it's informative and it rhymes!

  10. @Melissa Corson – If you are a regular crock pot user, you will probably find a lot of recipes that call for "cream of" condensed soups.
    Those soups are just a basic white sauce with stuff added, like cheese or mushrooms. You start by melting butter in a pan on a medium heat – try 1/2 a stick. Don't let it get too hot. Once it melts, quickly whisk in some flour – maybe 1/8 cup to make a paste. Then immediately add milk and keep stirring til it's the right consistency. Add more milk as needed. You can add more starch if needed – just whisk it in so it doesn't get lumpy. Turn it off and take it off the burner as soon as it gets thickened enough. You can interchange ingrediants, so instead of the flour you can use any kind of starch, like rice flour or rice starch. Or you could probably use a gluten free alfredo sauce if you can find one in a bottle, which is just a twist on the same basic formula.

  11. Delicious… I used the McDonald's style hashbrowns and broke them into small pieces. Plus, it tastes just as good as a leftover.

  12. I apologize if someone already asked this, but is the egg a must in this recipe? I have this thing about cooking with eggs…I'm always afraid I'm going to find bits of scrambled egg in the dish and it'll be gross. (I sound like I'm five, don't I?) It sounds DELICIOUS and I plan to try it this week, but I'd love to leave out the egg.

  13. How about calling it….No Sandwich Manwich Casserole? I've made it and even my fussy eater husband loved it. When I was mixing it up….he turned up his nose at it…but ended up eating to plates full. Thanks for posting.

  14. I have done something like this on my own using 6lbs.thawed ground turkey, 2 cans of Bold Manwhich and potates O’Brian. mixed it all together raw turkey meat and all put it in the crock pot on low of 8 hours and it was great.
