Sloppy Joe Baked Potatoes

Sloppy joe baked potatoes! 🤤😋
So simple and cheap just a baked potato with butter, shredded Colby cheese, sloppy joe meat. For mine I just use a can of sloppy joe or manwich sauce! Make as little or as much as you want

Sloppy Joe Baked Potatoes


  • Russet potatoes (1 per serving)
  • Butter, unsalted
  • Shredded Colby cheese
  • Sloppy Joe meat (using canned Sloppy Joe or Manwich sauce)
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Optional toppings: sliced green onions, sour cream, chopped fresh parsley


1. Prepare the Baked Potatoes:

  • Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C).
  • Scrub the potatoes thoroughly under running water to remove any dirt.
  • Pat the potatoes dry with a paper towel.
  • Prick the potatoes several times with a fork or knife to allow steam to escape during baking.
  • Rub each potato with a little bit of olive oil and sprinkle with salt.
  • Place the potatoes directly on the oven rack or on a baking sheet lined with foil.
  • Bake the potatoes for 45-60 minutes, or until they are tender when pierced with a fork.

2. Prepare the Sloppy Joe Meat:

  • While the potatoes are baking, prepare the Sloppy Joe meat according to the instructions on the canned sauce. Typically, this involves browning ground beef in a skillet, draining excess fat, and then adding the sauce to simmer until heated through.

3. Assemble the Sloppy Joe Baked Potatoes:

  • Once the potatoes are baked, remove them from the oven.
  • Carefully make a slit lengthwise in the center of each potato, fluffing up the insides with a fork.
  • Add a pat of butter into each potato and season with salt and pepper to taste.

4. Add Sloppy Joe Meat:

  • Spoon a generous portion of the prepared Sloppy Joe meat over each potato, allowing it to seep into the fluffy interior.

5. Add Colby Cheese:

  • Sprinkle a generous amount of shredded Colby cheese over the hot Sloppy Joe meat. The heat from the meat and potatoes will melt the cheese beautifully.

6. Optional Toppings:

  • If desired, garnish the Sloppy Joe Baked Potatoes with sliced green onions, a dollop of sour cream, and a sprinkle of chopped fresh parsley.
