Easy Sloppy Joe Pot Pie ****

We all loved this!  Big surprise for me, since I'm normally not a very big fan of sloppy joes.  The bread part was good, but the kids really liked scooping up the extra meat mixture with tortilla chips.  I doubled the entire thing, so that I would have plenty of leftovers for our lunch.  Didn't work out as well as I'd hoped, since there were hardly any leftovers!  :) 
ETA: I don't have an ovenproof skillet, so I cooked the meat and onion in my skillet, added the sloppy joe sauce, and heated to warm. I then poured it in a 9x13 glass baking dish, sprinkled cheese on it, and then spread on the batter topping and baked for 30 minutes.  If not doubling the recipe, it would probably be fine in an 8x8 baking dish.


EASY SLOPPY JOE POT PIE
Cyndy (MyPB&Jelly)

1 pound lean ground beef
1 medium onion, chopped (1/2 cup)
1 can (15 1/2 ounces) original sloppy joe sauce
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese (4 ounces)
1 cup Original Bisquick mix
1/2 cup milk
1 egg

Heat oven to 400ºF. Cook beef and onion in ovenproof 10-inch skillet over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until beef is brown; drain. Stir in sloppy joe sauce. Sprinkle with cheese. Stir remaining ingredients until blended. Pour over beef mixture. Bake about 30 minutes or until golden brown.
*Amy's notes: I doubled the recipe and cooked the meat and onion in my skillet, added the sloppy joe sauce, and heated to warm.  I then poured it in a 9x13 glass baking dish, sprinkled cheese on it, and then spread on the batter topping and baked for 30 minutes.

This is a stupid question, but how do I know if my skillet is oven proof? I'd love to make this next week!

Not a stupid question at all! I should have added that in my notes. I'll go update the recipe. I didn't use the skillet in the oven. Since I doubled the recipe, I mixed the beef mixture in the skillet as called for, then poured it in a 9x13 glass baking dish, sprinkled cheese on it, and finally spread the batter on top of that. Let me know how it goes. We loved it! :)

Oh, and if you're not doubling the recipe, it would probably be fine in an 8x8 baking dish.
