Easy Bisquick Baked Sloppy Joe Pie

This Sloppy Joe Pie recipe is an easy twist on the traditional sloppy joes, but this meal is made with the meat mixture baked beneath the bun instead of served between the bread. It’s not quite as “sloppy” as the classic handheld sandwich, but it tastes just as delicious with all of your favorite flavors.

It takes mere minutes to prepare the filling in one pot, transfer it to a pie pan, sprinkle it with cheese, and cover it with a Bisquick topping that bakes light and fluffy. The cheesy crust perfectly compliments the meaty mixture below and creates the best family-friendly bite of sloppy joe flavor baked under the bun!

What is Bisquick?

Bisquick is simply a premade baking mix made of flour, shortening, leavening, and salt. It’s traditionally used to make pancakes or waffles, biscuits, and muffins. It’s a perfect topping for this Sloppy Joe Pie and a fun twist on the traditional recipe.
