Easy Sloppy Joe Squares

Easy Sloppy Joe Squares

Happy Monday everyone! I hope you are having a great day so far! Last night we decided to try putting the babies into their own separate cribs to see if that would help them sleep better. As they get older they are starting to disturb each other more often. I think it worked good for one of them, he only got up once during the night! Of course it took me an hour and a half to get him back to sleep after eating, but at least he slept until morning after that. 

The other little guy decided to be difficult the whole night. But here we are, it's morning and it's going to be an awesome day! I'm making coffee right now and trying to remember what I had on my menu plan for the week...I accidentally threw it away yesterday after we did the grocery shopping. This meal that I'm posting today is one that I really like to make because it's so easy and quick. It's very kid-friendly so if you have children you should definitely try it out!

Easy Sloppy Joe Squares (adapted from Life as a Lofthouse)
  • 1 pound Ground Beef
  • 1 Tablespoon Minced Onion
  • 1 cup Ketchup
  • 1/2 cup Water
  • 1/4 cup Brown Sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1 Tablespoon Red Wine Vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons Chili Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon Black Pepper
  • 2 cans Pillsbury Big & Buttery Crescent Rolls
  • 2 cups shredded Cheddar Cheese
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Brown ground beef in a large skillet adding in the minced onion. Drain the grease. 

2. Add in ketchup, water, brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce, vinegar, chili powder, salt and pepper. Stir until combined and simmer for 20 minutes.

3. In a 9x13 pan, roll out one can of crescent rolls to cover the bottom of the pan. Pour the sloppy joe mix over the bottom crust and spread evenly. 

4. Sprinkle the cheese evenly over the sloppy joe mixture and cover the top with the second can of crescent rolls. 

5. Bake for 30-35 minutes. Let cool for 5-10 minutes before serving. 

Keep an eye on the top crust while baking, if it looks too brown before the 30 minutes is up, you can cover it with a piece of foil. This is what I should have done, but I was distracted and didn't pay attention to it. Yours should turn out slightly lighter in color than mine did because of this.

I hope you like it!
