I'm a fan of the Sloppy Joe.
I'm also a fan of casseroles.
I'm also a fan of changing up a classic a bit.
Those things being said...
I introduce you to my version of a Sloppy Joe Casserole.
 This recipe has all the things I require in a favorite...easy and delicious.

Here's what you need:
1 lb ground beef (or ground meat of your choice)
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
2 tubes of crescent roll dough

Brown your pound of hamburger and add the can of Manwich.  
There are some things you can skimp and get the store band on, but Manwich isn't one of them. (Along with Campbell's Tomato Soup, toilet paper and laundry soap.)
I must have the original brand.  
I'm a purist like that.

Anyway, while that is heating up, spray a 11x7" pan with cooking spray.
Unroll one can of crescent dough and press out all the seams so it forms one sheet and goes up the sides of the pan.
You can use a 9x13" pan but you will end up with a shallower casserole.
 Add in your sloppy joe meat mixture.
 Sprinkle your cheese on top.
I also added some fresh ground pepper.
Unroll the 2nd tube of crescent dough, press out the seams and lay it over the top of the casserole.
 Bake at 350* for 20-30 minutes until golden brown.
These are the times I like to use the clear pyrex so you can see the bottom of the casserole to make sure the dough on the bottom is fully cooked.
Really, it doesn't get any easier than that. 
Let it cool for a moment and then slice it up!
One of the reason this casserole is in my rotation so often is because it reheats for lunches really well (an important factor in cooking for one person).

What yummy things did you cook up this weekend?

I shared this recipe on some of these link parties.

    1. You misspelled ruin. It takes all the legitimacy out of your complaint when you misspell words. Moron.

    2. I did not misspell anything, for one. Last time I checked "ruining" was in fact a word. Google it. I dare you.

      Two: I get how you might have thought I was some random chick being a bitch but Jen is actually my friend. Sass. It's what we do. Maybe you'll have to Google that too...

      Oh and three: Maybe you should dig a little deeper next time before you go Kindergarten name calling. Only "morons" do that kind of shit.
