Tater Tot Sloppy Joe Casserole

Sloppy Joes. We don’t know exactly what is is about these admittedly messy sandwiches that we love so much, but whatever it is, it has us completely hooked. While we typically make these every couple weeks for an easy weeknight dinner, we realized when we got home and were getting ready to cook that we forgot to grab buns from the grocery store. While, yes, we could have turned our dinner into more of a chili, we really had a hankering for sloppy joes that just wouldn’t quit, so we looked in our freezer and decided to improvise…

When we saw that we had a bag of frozen tater tots in our freezer, all the puzzle pieces fell into place and we knew exactly how this dish would play out: a tasty sloppy joe skillet topped with tots and baked to perfection – it doesn’t get better than that! We’ll always love a nice squishy bun with our sloppy joes, but don’t underestimate the power of deliciously crispy potato pillows that perfectly soak up the sauce from the “sloppiness” underneath. This stuff is so good!
