Sloppy Joe Under a Bun Casserole

posted by Julie Evink on July 24, 2013

Sloppy Joe Under a Bun Casserole ~ Sloppy Joe Meat hidden under a layer of cheese and topped with a "bun"! via www.julieseatsandtreats.comYou know what “us” food bloggers hate? Ugly food. There I said it.

Do you know how hard it is to take a picture of a casserole. I know I love them and I love to share them, but honestly it’s a picture that gets you guys to come back all the time or click through to my blog on Pinterest for you Pinterest fanatics.

It’s not the thought of “Oh, Julie I bet has an awesome recipe!” Although maybe there are a few of you out there like that. A.K.A. My mother. Bless her heart. She doesn’t care if my pictures are pretty. She keeps coming back for more.

You guys on the other hand are a little bit more critical, so here’s my best picture of this yummy casserole. I wanted to be able to show you that layer of saucy meat, the cheese oozing out of it an then topped with the layer of “bun” with sesame seeds. Did I accomplish it and make it look some what appeasing? I sure hope so.

Otherwise I’ll never see you again. And that would, well, just break my heart! So take my word and go try out this casserole if you are looking for an easy and fun twist on your typical old Sloppy Joe!

    pic looks great… and even if it didn’t, I for one would still come back and look for yummy recipes!

    • Julie Evink

      YAY I have two loyal readers…you and my mom 🙂 Thanks Amy!!!

  • Jocelyn@BruCrew Life

    Your food always looks great!! And sometimes I go mad trying to get the “perfect” food pic!! 😉

    • Julie Evink

      Thanks Jocelyn! That makes two of us 🙂

  • Jen Nikolaus

    I think this looks awesome, Julie!!! In fact, I might make it this week for my family! I feel the same way, though…I’ll make a super yummy dinner and think “how the crap am I going to make this look good?!” I LOVE casseroles but they are so hard to get good pictures of! Anyway, I think you did a great job! My mom is my biggest fan too, lol! Oh, question: is the chobani just plain (non-fat) greek yogurt?

    • Julie Evink

      LOL the problems of a blogger! I’m always going on Foodgawker and searching similar recipes so I get some inspiration! I’m terrible at coming up with different ways to take a picture. I’m scared all mine are going to look the same! And yup Chobani is just a brand of greek yogurt!

  • Lyuba@willcookforsmiles

    This is pretty awesome!! I need to try it soon 🙂

  • Ashley

    It’s true, ugly food really is a bummer. Especially when it’s super delicious and you want to scream for everyone to try it. But your picture makes me want to eat it, so decidedly not ugly. 🙂

  • Tracey @ The Kitchen is My Playground

    I feel your pain, Julie! I even NAMED one of my dishes with ‘ugly’ in it ’cause is was so ugly! … Ugly Buttermilk Baked Chicken. It’s totally yummy, but totally ugly and impossible to photograph well! Oh well, we just do the best we can. 🙂

    • Julie Evink

      Haha that’s awesome! I’ll have to keep that strategy in mind!

  • Joann

    I have a question, can you use sour cream instead of the greek yogurt?

  • Jaylee

    I saw this recipe this morning and could not stop thinking about it all day. I ended up running out to get the ingredients I was missing because I just had to try it! Soooooo good! Thanks for this recipe. It will definitely be going into my regular rotation.
