I have quite a few products that I like to keep stocked here in the Mostly Homemade Mom pantry. If you've been following along here, even for just a short time, you know that I LOVE using my favorite grocery store shortcuts in new and exciting ways to get my family eating around the dinner table as many nights as I can. Or, I should say, as many nights as I have the energy to do so! Ha!

One of my must-haves to stock up on with a sale is cornbread mix, specifically my favorite Martha White Cornbread Mix. I just love those little pouches! They don't take up much room at all on my baking shelf, but I can't even begin to tell you how much my kids light up when they see me pull it out to make cornbread muffins to go with dinner. If you have picky eaters and you're trying a new dish, throw together a quick batch of cornbread muffins and serve it with dinner. You'd be surprised at how much more likely they'd be to try a new recipe when they have cornbread to munch right along with the meal!

In fact when I was testing out this recipe on my boys, of course they turned their nose up to the "different" dinner they were watching me make. The second I pulled out that familiar Martha White Cornbread Mix, their little eyes lit up. Both of them declared this as their new favorite dinner. Total Mom win, I would say!

I honestly was inspired to try this recipe the last time I made a batch of regular skillet sloppy joes because I thought it would pair really nice with cornbread and save me the trouble of scooping the meat onto each individual roll. I was right on both points - plus, anything sprinkled with cheese is just more awesome, am I right?!

I served this casserole with a tossed salad, but you could also do steamed fresh or frozen veggies to round out the meal. Next time, I plan on making a second pan and freezing after baking to keep our family stocked on meals for the last minute!
