1 pound ground beef
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 can (8 ounces) tomato sauce
1 can (8-3/4 ounces) whole kernel corn, drained
1/4 cup water
1 envelope sloppy joe mix
2 tubes (6 ounces each) refrigerated buttermilk biscuits
2 tablespoons whole milk
1/3 cup cornmeal
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese, divided
Minced fresh parsley, optional
1. Preheat oven to 375°. In a large skillet, cook beef and onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Stir in tomato sauce, corn, water
and sloppy joe seasoning; cook over medium heat until bubbly. Reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes; remove from heat and set aside.
2. Separate biscuits; flatten each to a 3-1/2-in. circle. Place milk and cornmeal in separate shallow bowls; dip both sides into milk and then into cornmeal.
Place seven biscuits around the sides and three on the bottom of an ungreased 9-in. pie plate.
3. Press biscuits together to form a crust, leaving a scalloped edge around rim. Sprinkle with 1/2 cup cheese. Spoon meat mixture over cheese.
4. Bake until crust is deep golden brown, 20-25 minutes. Sprinkle with remaining cheese and, if desired, fresh parsley. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.
