Sloppy Joe’s are a tasty meal that the whole family usually enjoys. There’s just one problem. They’re so… sloppy. Take one bite and the meat oozes out, leaving you with half the filling on your plate and sauce all over your fingers.
The answer to this dilemma is Unsloppy Joe’s. Only four ingredients, a few simple steps, and you’ve got a yummy meal that doesn’t require a stack of napkins. Pus, it’s so simple that with a little supervision they’re a great way to get kids in the kitchen and learning how to cook.
What’s even better is that these are basically homemade hot pockets. You don’t have to stick with just sloppy joe’s, you can adapt this method to just about any filling you like: Ham and cheddar, beef and swiss, or even something a little fancier (and vegetarian) like brie and apple. You’re only limited by your own creativity!
- 1 can Grands Buttermilk Biscuits
- 1 lb. ground beef
- 1 can Manwich sloppy joe sauce
- 1 C. shredded Mexican blend cheese
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
- In a large skillet, brown the ground beef and drain all excess fat. Add the can of sloppy joe sauce to the ground beef and mix thoroughly. Set aside.
- On a flat surface, using a rolling pin. Roll out each biscuit into a flat disc of dough, approximately 5-6″ in diameter.
- Place each disc of dough on an ungreased baking sheet.
- Once all the dough is rolled out, place two generous tablespoons of ground beef in the middle of each disc of dough. Leave approximately 1″ of dough uncovered around the outer edge of the dough disc.
- Place a tablespoon of shredded cheese on top of the ground beef.
- Fold the dough in half over the filling, and press the edges to seal well.
- Bake for 9-14 minutes, until golden brown. Serve.
