Sloppy Joe Casserole Filling

  • 1 recipe Homemade Sloppy Joes (or your favorite recipe)
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese (1/2 mixed into filling later and 1/2 for topping)

Low Carb Cornbread Base


Sloppy Joe Filling:

  • Make the sloppy Joe filing per directions. Let cool slightly, then stir in half of the cheddar cheese. 

Cornbread Base:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Liberally butter or oil a 10-inch cast iron skillet.
  • Place the cheeses, eggs, almond flour, baking powder and extract (if using) in a food processor. Process until a thick batter forms.


  • Spoon the batter into the prepared cast iron skillet and gently spread evenly to the sides of the pan.
  • Top the batter with the sloppy Joe filling and bake for 35-40 minutes. Top with the rest of the cheddar cheese and return to the oven until melted.
  • Let the Sloppy Joe Casserole cool for 5 minutes before serving. 
  • Serve with a crisp salad. Serves 8 at 7 net carbs each.


Refrigerate any leftovers and rewarm in the microwave or wrap in foil and rewarm in a 350 F oven.
