i made this up when i wanted something that kids would like as well as adults. you can also add shredded cheese(over the top) at the last few minutes of baking.

This is a great variation to meat loaf. We loved the flavor that the sloppy joe mix added to the ground beef. I added cheese on top as you suggested...wonderful. A quick an easy meat dish to prepare when short on time. Thanks for sharing this, Polly!

I really enjoyed this recipe, as did the family. I made it for Sunday dinner. The sloppy joe sauce adds an incredible flavor, much better than tomato sauce. The only thing I added to the recipe was some cubes of american cheese (about 1 cup), which I add to almost every meatloaf I make. Thanks for posting this Polly, it was excellent.
