For dinner, start with a twist on the classic sloppy Joe with this Jack-O-Latern Sloppy Joe Pie. The recipe originally comes from Taste of Home, but I made a few tweaks of my own.

To make this recipe you'll need:

  • 1-1/2 pounds lean ground beef
  • 1/2 c. chopped onion
  • 2 tsp. all-purpose flour
  • 1 c. salsa
  • 1/2 c. chili sauce
  • 1 c. frozen corn
  • 2 tbsp. brown sugar
  • 2 sheets of refrigerated pie crust
  • 1/2 c. shredded cheese
  • 1 egg

In a large skillet, cook the beef and onion over medium heat until the meat is no longer pink; drain the fat. In a small bowl, combine the flour, salsa and chili sauce until blended. Stir it into skillet, then add the corn and brown sugar. Place one pie crust into the bottom of a deep-dish 9-inch pie plate. Fill the pie with the meat mixture and sprikle the top of the filling with cheese. Unroll the second pastry and place over the filling.

With a sharp knife, cut out a face to resemble a jack-o-lantern and press the edges of the crusts together. Beat the egg and brush over the pie pastry. Bake the pie at 450 degrees for 9-11 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown and filling is bubbly. Enjoy!
