When I was little my mom would cook all sorts of different casseroles, and now as a mom, I completely understand why! You can get all of your major food groups normally into one dish. Pop it in the oven and you are good to go.
One of my kids’ favorite meals is sloppy Joes. They never complain when I make it. But, let’s be real, we can only eat sloppy Joes so many times a month. Hahaha.
So, we tried putting it all together and this beautiful casserole creation was born. My kids are happy and I get to eat something *slightly* different. Talk about a win win situation!
Below are lists of everything you need for this cornbread topped casserole recipe, then make sure to keep reading for the directions!
Ingredients for cornbread casserole with jiffy mix:

- Red onion
- Red bell pepper

- Red wine vinegar
- BBQ seasoning
