There was a time when I used to buy my Sloppy Joe mix out of a can from the grocery store. Not that that’s a bad thing, but I’ll tell you what…once you make your own (which doesn’t take much more time than opening a can), you’ll never go back!

And, what better way to serve your homemade Sloppy Joe’s than over than a homemade cornbread waffle? Of course, a bun is good too…but why not give your family a little something unexpected? It’s a fun meal that is sure to please the entire family!

Thanks for the Homemade Sloppy Joes Over Cornbread Waffles, Mom!!

  • As a weeknight time saver, why not consider making the waffles on the weekend when you have more time and then freeze them to use during the week?
  • To reheat, just pop them in the toaster or place them on a baking sheet which has been fitted with a rack and put them in a 325-degree oven to warm while you’re making the sloppy Joe’s. Dinner will be ready in minutes! I hope you’re hungry!! 🙂

To make this meal of Homemade Sloppy Joes Over Cornbread Waffles even more kid-friendly, (yeah, I’m helpful like that), you might want to drizzle some maple syrup and melted butter over the cornbread waffles (not mentioned in the recipe) before topping with the sloppy Joe’s, for an extra layer of flavor.

I LOVE that idea and wish I would have thought of it sooner. LOL  Ah well, next time…Or at least that’s my story (book humor), and I’m sticking to it!
