Sloppy Joe Bake

Servings 12 servings


  • 14 Rhodes Yeast Dinner Rolls, thawed to room temperature
  • 2 1/2 pounds lean ground beef
  • 1/2 cup minced onions
  • 2 (15oz) cans sloppy Joe sauce
  • 4 cups grated mozzarella cheese
  • chili powder


  • Spray countertop lightly with non-stick cooking spray. Combine 8 rolls and roll into a 10 x 14-inch rectangle. Cover with plastic wrap and let rest.
  • Brown ground beef and onions and drain well. Add sloppy Joe sauce and let simmer for a few minutes.
  • Remove plastic wrap from dough and place the dough in the bottom of a sprayed 9 x 13-inch baking pan. Poke dough several times with a fork to prevent bubbles from forming and pre-bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 15 minutes.
  • While crust is baking, combine remaining 6 rolls and roll into a 10 x 14-inch rectangle for the top crust. Cover and let rest.
  • Sprinkle 2 cups grated cheese over baked crust. Spread meat mixture evenly over cheese. Top with remaining 2 cups cheese.
  • Remove plastic wrap from the top crust and place it over the cheese. Cut slits at regular intervals in the top crust. Sprinkle lightly with chili powder.
  • Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 20 minutes or until meat mixture is bubbly and top crust is golden.
