Sloppy Joe Casserole

When I think of sloppy joes, I always think of a kid-friendly, sometimes messy, simple dish that can be ready to eat in no time. This version is nice because it is in a casserole form, feeds tons, and can be made ahead of time and popped in the oven when needed! My kids loved this and asked for seconds! My favorite part was the yummy crust on top, but of course, the whole dish was packed with flavor! Nothing says comfort food more then a piece of this sloppy joe casserole, right? : )

1 1/2 lbs ground turkey (or beef)
1 onion, chopped
1 green pepper, chopped
2 tbsp brown sugar
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tbsp yellow mustard
1 tsp garlic salt
1 (15 oz) can tomato sauce
3/4 cup ketchup
2 cups flour
3 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 1/3 cups milk
6 tbsp melted butter
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
In a skillet over medium heat, cook the turkey/beef until no longer pink. Drain fat. Add in the onion and green pepper and cook an additional 5 minutes, or until tender. Add the brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce, yellow mustard, garlic salt, tomato sauce, and ketchup. Mix until all combined. Allow to simmer over low heat while you prepare the topping. In a bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, salt, milk, melted butter, and eggs. Once mixed, fold in the cheese.
Pour meat mixture into the bottom of a 9 x 13 baking dish. Spread dough layer on top of meat, covering entirely. Bake in a preheated oven, 400, for about 35-40 minutes, or until top layer is cooked through and turning golden brown. Remove from oven and cut into desired size pieces!
