Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delicious spin on a traditional sloppy joe! We really enjoyed the ease of preparing this recipe as well as the flavor meal. Highly recommend giving this one a try if you still have this seasoning on hand. We added some onion onion to the meat as we were browning it and enjoyed the added flavor. A favorite with the kids and grown ups alike and also a great meal to make a take to a friend, new mom, etc.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Added to the dinner rotation! This has become one of my family's new dinner favorites. It literally could not be more simple to make. The sloppy joe casserole is delicious, and everyone has seconds or thirds. No leftovers for my picky family.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Needed for last minute group dinner! Was asked to make a dinner for college group for church at the last minute. Needed to serve 30. Searched and saw this recipe. I quadrupled it hoping that would be enough. They loved it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yummy! I am not generally a casserole fan, but this one works! The Sweet & Smoky BBQ Seasoning was already a favorite, so we tried this out. We are a family of 4 and it made enough for all of us to have dinner, plus me bring leftovers to work for lunch the following 2 days. Will make again for sure!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good taste, and all in one dish! It had a very good BBQ taste to it, and its nice that its all in one dish. Very easy to make. It is a very big portion though. I am thinking that maybe I could cut the recipe in half somehow, next time.
