2 pounds ground beef (80/20)
½ cup ketchup
2 cups prepared tomato sauce
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon onion powder

To make sloppy Joe mix: Heat a large skillet on medium-high heat. Saute beef until cooked through, about 10 to 15 minutes. Drain beef and return to skillet.
Add everything from ketchup to molasses. Combine until fully incorporated.
Simmer for 5 minutes on medium-low heat.
Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, melt butter on medium-low heat.
Add garlic and parsley. Simmer gently for 3 minutes. Do not let garlic herb butter burn or turn dark.
Arrange croissant dough to fit the bottom of a casserole dish.
Brush dough liberally with garlic herb butter.
Top with a layer of sloppy Joe mix (about 2 cups). Top with 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese. Repeat three to four times.
Loosely cover with foil and bake for 40 minutes, or until dough is cooked through.
Remove foil and continue to bake for 15 minutes, or until cheese is golden brown.
Pro tip: For a quick, easy recipe, use canned sloppy Joe mix.
