  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 green bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 can (15 oz) Manwich Original Sloppy Joe Sauce
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 can (8 oz) refrigerated biscuit dough
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup sour cream (optional)
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Optional Additions:

  • 1 cup frozen corn, thawed
  • 1 cup sliced mushrooms
  • 1 tsp garlic powder


  1. Preheat the Oven:
  • Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  1. Cook the Beef Mixture:
  • In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the chopped onion and bell pepper, cooking until they are soft and translucent, about 5 minutes.
  • Add the ground beef to the skillet and cook until browned, breaking it up with a spoon as it cooks. Drain any excess fat.
  1. Add Manwich Sauce:
  • Stir in the Manwich Original Sloppy Joe Sauce and bring the mixture to a simmer. Cook for an additional 5 minutes, allowing the flavors to meld. Season with salt and pepper to taste. If using, stir in the frozen corn, sliced mushrooms, and garlic powder at this stage.
  1. Prepare the Biscuit Topping:
  • In a medium bowl, combine the refrigerated biscuit dough, milk, and sour cream (if using). Mix until a soft dough forms.
  1. Assemble the Casserole:
  • Pour the beef mixture into a 9×13-inch baking dish, spreading it out evenly. Sprinkle the shredded cheddar cheese over the top of the beef mixture.
  • Drop spoonfuls of the biscuit dough over the cheese, covering as much of the surface as possible.
  1. Bake the Casserole:
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes, or until the biscuit topping is golden brown and cooked through. If necessary, cover with foil during the last 10 minutes of baking to prevent over-browning.
  1. Serve:
  • Allow the casserole to cool slightly before serving. Cut into squares and serve warm.

Tips for Success:

  • Use a lean ground beef to minimize excess grease.
  • For a spicier kick, add a chopped jalapeño or a pinch of red pepper flakes to the beef mixture.
  • Ensure the biscuit topping is evenly spread to achieve a uniform golden crust.
