Baked Sloppy Joes

One of my husband’s favorite foods is sloppy joes. I don’t really love buns so I thought I would try something new and put the sloppy joes in biscuits. They turned out delicious and a lot less “sloppy” than the original kind! Hope you like them!

Baked Sloppy Joes

For all of you Sloppy Joe lovers, we put the sloppy joes in biscuits. They turned out delicious and not as "sloppy" as the classic Sloppy Joe!

  1. These came out so amazing! But instead of grands I used Jr. grands. 10 count package of them. 2 packages. I placed ten flattened down on a cookie sheet. Topped with the meat and cheese. And then placed another buiscuit flatened on top of that one, and then pinched the sides together so it came out like a buiscuit bun. :) Amazing recipe that me and my boyfriend loved and will be making again.
  2. Awesome idea, but these (as well as any sloppy joe or sloppy joe variation) are SO MUCH BETTER with homemade sloppy joe sauce, not Manwich in a can (yuck, too many artificial ingredients, preservatives, and chemicals!!) Homemade sloppy joe sauce is surprisingly easy to make, too. Trust - you'll thank me later! =)

    Made these tonight. I had way more sloppy joe mixture than I did biscuits, so I like what Rosey said in a previous comment about using 2 cans (wish I would have read that earlier). Other than that, this is a great recipe! We added sliced black olives and used shredded Colby jack cheese, instead of mozzarella. Delicious! Thanks!
  4. I just made these tonight and used one can of big biscuits. it only made 4 pockets with leftover turkey. i did buy two cans so I can make more though. Is there a secret to keeping the edges together? They cooked nicely, but when I pick them up, They slide apart. I would love to have my little kids (3 and 1) try to feed themselves, but this wouldn't work for them. Hopefully I can make it work someway and make them teeny size for little hands too. Thanks for the recipes...very out of the box!
