Cheesy Sloppy Joe Casserole

This sloppy joe casserole is a hearty freezer-friendly dinner for the whole family! A rich and saucy homemade sloppy joe layer is topped with cheddar cheese and crispy tater tots, and baked until bubbly and hot. Perfect for a busy weeknight or casual weekend supper!What’s not to love? The savory/slightly sweet flavor of the saucy sloppy joes topped with gooey cheddar cheese and crispy potato nuggets… it doesn’t get much better!

Plus, the entire casserole can be assembled ahead, frozen, or parts of the recipe can be prepped ahead of time. This saves you precious time on those busy weeknights, and is a lifesaver on those days where you just don’t want to cook but you need to get dinner on the table!

  • 1 lb. ground beef (I use 80/20)
