This hearty sloppy joe casserole is the stuff of weeknight dinner dreams. Plus, with fall weather peeking around the corner, my kitchen is officially ramping up for casserole season.
In a skillet, sauté the ground beef and veggies. Next, add the sauce ingredients and seasonings into the pan.
Stir in some water and bring the sloppy joe mixture to a simmer. Let it cook through to thicken.
Once the sloppy joe filling is ready, transfer it to your greased baking dish. Go ahead and layer on those tater tots (in a single layer).
Next, you’ll bake the casserole to get the tater tots crispy and golden, before adding the cheese.
Place the casserole into the oven for about 25 minutes, or until the tater tots are a nice, golden brown.
Take the dish out and add a generous sprinkle of shredded cheese, then return your casserole to the oven for another few minutes.
When the cheese is all golden and melty, it’s time to serve!
