How To Make Cheesy Sloppy Joe Cornbread Skillet 

 

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Then in a large skillet over medium-high heat add the diced onions, ground beef, and a little bit of minced garlic. Season the meat with beef bouillon powder, salt and pepper. Cook it until no pink is visible within the meat and then drain off the excess grease. 

 

Sloppy Joe Mixture

Bake at 400 degrees for 20-25 minutes until the cornbread is fully cooked and golden brown. A toothpick should come out clean when you poke it through. Baste the top of the cornbread with butter if desired and allow it to cool for 10 minutes, then serve and enjoy.

FAQ 

 

Can I use Manwich sauce for this recipe? 

  • Yes! You may use it as a substitute instead of making your own.  

 

How do I store leftovers? 

  • Store leftovers in an airtight container and eat within 2-3 days. However, keep in mind that this recipe is best eaten fresh because the cornbread will soak up excess moisture the longer it sits.
