Cheesy Sloppy Joe Pockets - Recipe

sloppy joe recipe

Growing up I hated Sloppy Joe's.  It was very rare that we had them, but when we did I remember whining about it.  I swore I would never make my kids eat them. 

However, that being said, a few weeks ago we were at a friends house and she made these sloppy joe "pockets."  She won me over when she said there was cheese inside of them.  I don't know about you, but I love me some cheesy goodness. 

Here's what you need:

1 lb ground hamburger
1 can Pillsbury grands biscuits
1 can sloppy joe
shredded cheddar cheese

Directions:

Brown meat in pan until cooked.  Drain.  Add sloppy joe mix and heat.


Next you pop open your can of biscuits {& try to startle yourself while doing so, unlike me}.  Take one biscuit and stretch it out to flatten it.  Next you scoop a small amount of the sloppy joe mixture and place on top of the biscuit.  Sprinkle with cheddar cheese. 


Then you fold over the biscuits to make a "pocket."  This is probably the messiest part, but it gets easier the more you do it.  Also?  While it may seem that the pocket looks too small, it's not.  They will get larger when they bake. 

Bake at 350 for 8 minutes, then flip them over and bake for 7 more.

 
And that's it!  What you end up with is this yummy cheesy pocket!


It's soooo good!  I wish Lincoln would even attempt to try it, because I know he'd love it....but he's three ;)

If you try these, come back and let me know what you think!
