This is a great kid-pleasing casserole. The sloppy joe meat and cornbread go well together. I think I might make this next time with left over chili instead of sloppy joe meat, because I love chili and corn bread.
Sloppy Joe Casserole
1 lb ground beef
1/2 cup chopped onion
15 oz can tomato sauce
1 tablespoon brown sugar
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon yellow mustard
1, 6.5 oz pouch Betty Crocker cornbread mix
1/3 cup milk
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 cup shredded cheese
Preheat oven to 350.
Cook beef and onion in a skillet until browned and cooked though; drain. Stir in tomato sauce, brown sugar, Worcestershire, and mustard. Cook 2-3 minutes until boiling; keep warm.
In a bowl combine cornbread mix, milk, oil, and egg just until moistened (batter will be lumpy). Spoon hot beef mixture into an ungreased 8" square baking dish. Sprinkle with 3/4 cup cheese. Spoon cornbread batter evenly over the top.
Bake 25-35 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center of topping comes out clean. Sprinkle remaining 1/4 cup cheese over hot casserole.
