1 (16 ounce) package
1 1/2 pounds
1 (14.5 ounce) can
canned diced tomatoes
1 (6 ounce) can
1 (1.3 ounce) envelope
sloppy joe seasoning
ground dry mustard
ground black pepper
shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
Made this dish for a serving of 12. Came out pretty good, not a very aasthetic within this recipe. Looks more like dogfood. But the taste is great. A few changes... the mac and cheese part was good, i thought, but a few other people didn't care to much for it. read the other reviews and I suggest use your own recipe. 2/ i would make more sloppy joe than mac and cheese. We made too much pasta and craved more joes, but oh well. This recipe might also work with chili...
Not so good. It sounded wonderful, but I was disappointed with the results. I took the other reviewers' suggestions and made my favorite mac and cheese for the bottom. The envelope mix/sloppy joe topping was horrible. I had to doctor it up considerably to make it edible! I think if I made this using my favorite mac and cheese plus my own sloppy joe recipe this might be better, but I advise against the envelope sloppy joe mix....
Pretty darn good! Next time I think I'll try it with canned Manwich and my own Mac and cheese recipe (which isn't quite as fattening as the one in this recipe!) A very good meal...good combination. Hubby and I had our doubts prior to tasting it, but we were pleasantly surprised!:-) Ally
I make my sloppy joe's with Manwich and I tried this recipe and something about the mac & cheese recipe, the taste just didn't please me so I'm going to try it again with Velveeta Shells & Cheese, TBC....
I GIVE THIS A 5 STAR. I MADE IT PRETTY MUCH TO THE RECIPE EXCEPT I ADDED MORE SPICES,FRESH GREEN PEPPERS AND FRESH TOMAOTES IN MY HAMBURGER MIX. I ALSO ADDED A LITTLE SPLENDA (SUGAR IF YOU ARE NOT DIABETIC) AND THAT TOPPED IT OFF. I LIKE THINGS WITH TASTE AND NOT BLAND SO THE EXTRA SPICES WILL DO THE TRICK FOR THIS DISH. (PARSLEY, SEASONING SALT, A "LITTLE" CAJUN SEASONING. AND FOR THOSE WHO DID FIND THE MAC MIXTURE A LITTLE DRY ADD A EXTRA 1/2 CUP OF HALF AND HALF AND 1/2 CUP BUTTER VERSUS THE 1/4 CUP. ALSO, DON'T SCIMP ON THE CHEESE. ADD A LITTLE MORE AND BE DARING. I USED MOZARELLA AND CHEDDAR. I MUST SAY WE LOVED IT!
Pretty good recipe here! I liked the combination of the two flavors. The leftovers, however, are not nearly as good; best to eat this one right away. Thanks for the recipe!
My husband really liked this a lot but my daughter and I found the mac and cheese part to be pretty dry and not very cheesy tasting. Surprising since there is so much cheese in the recipe. Perhaps the 1/2 and 1/2 is overwhelming the cheese flavor a bit. I think this recipe has great potential, however, and may make it again just using my own mac and cheese recipe and top it with the sloppy joe topping from this recipe.
I simplified this recipe as a time saver. I made the mac and cheese part as it read, but rather than make the sloppy-joe portion, I just used two cans of bean-less chili. Yum YUM! Very heavy dish though. I would say it will feed more like 10-12 if served with a side dish and bread! I used two 8X8 pans and gave one to a friend that just had a baby. I think this would freeze well as well!
