A Sloppy Joes recipe starts with refrigerated biscuits pressed in muffin cups and filled with Manwich meat mixture, then sprinkled with cheese after baking

  • 1 pound ground chuck beef (80% lean)
  • 1/2 cup chopped yellow onion
  • 1 can (15 oz each) Manwich® Original Sloppy Joe Sauce
  • 1 pkg (12 oz each) refrigerated Texas-style buttermilk biscuits
  • 2/3 cup shredded Cheddar and Monterey Jack cheese blend
  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Heat large skillet over medium-high heat; cook beef and onion 7 minutes or until beef is crumbled and no longer pink, stirring occasionally. Drain. Add Sloppy Joe sauce; cook 1 minute more or until hot.
  2. Meanwhile, press 1 biscuit into bottom and up sides of each medium muffin cup, being careful not to tear dough. Place 1/4 cup meat mixture in each cup. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until biscuits are golden brown.
  3. Sprinkle cheese evenly over top of each cup. Let stand 1 minute or until cheese softens. Carefully remove from pan.

I made these the other night, they came out really delicious, minus the fact I used butter flavored biscuits. Regular would be better. I decided to mold the biscuits onto the bottom of the pan and cook them that way, then reversed it and filled the cups and continued baking them. Was very good.

I molded the biscuit dough over the bottom of the muffin pan and baked them, then added the sloppy joe filling and cheese. I put it back in the oven to melt the cheese. My family loved it!

I was disappointed. Found it nearly impossible to keep the dough up the sides of the muffin pan, Used less tha 1/4 cup meat mixture, and it still spilled over. Didn't care for how the biscuit dough came out. Will go back to sloppy joes on hamburger buns.

I haven't tried the recipe. I've seen this method making cookies on the bottom side of cupcake pans & this adds new ideas to the savory recipes.

I tried the recipe and it didn't turn out like the picture. I followed the instructions and after the food finish baking the biscuit dough rows up and the meat was just sitting on top of the biscuit it didn't stay at the bottom at the other biscuit. The biscuit were good, but I was a little disappointed they did not turn out like I would preferred them too.
