Easy Sloppy Joe Cups #Recipe
I find myself getting bored with our usual recipes. I mean you can only eat chicken so many ways before your just BLAH. So I decided to venture out and make something new. Funny thing is I have NEVER made Sloppy Joes for my boys even though I enjoyed them growing up. So I figured I would make them tonight with a twist. I hid some pureed carrots and onions in the recipe and my youngest knew no different. Check out my recipe below.
Easy Sloppy Joe Cups
1 Can of Pillsbury Country Style Biscuits
1 Pound of Extra Lean Beef
1 Large Carrot Grated or Pureed
1 Small Onion Pureed ( or diced depending on your family’s likes)
1 156ml can of Tomato Paste
1 Pack of Club House Sloppy Joes Seasoning Mix
1 Cup of Water
1 Cup of Shredded Cheese
- Preheat Oven to 350F.
- While the oven is preheating, toss the carrot, onion and meat into a large skillet and cook until the meat is no longer pink. This takes between 7-10 minutes. I used extra lean ground beef so I had no extra fat to drain. But if you use a different fat content, be sure to drain the meat of any excess fat.
- Add the packet of Club House Sloppy Joes Seasoning Mix, water and tomato paste to the skillet. Bring the mixture up to a boil and then let it thicken. ( Roughly 5 minutes)
- When the meat mixture is cooking take a biscuit and flatten out with your hands. Then press it into the bottom of a non stick muffin pan.
- Take a large tablespoon of the meat mixture and place into the biscuit in the pan. They will look like little tarts.
- Bake in the over for 12-15 minutes or until the biscuit itself is a nice golden brown.
- Remove from oven and sprinkle some cheese on top of each cup. Set it aside for 1-2 minutes or until the cheese gets all soft and gooey.
My boys just LOVED this recipe. They have been planning what else I could make in the biscuit cup and also taking the Easy Sloppy Joe Cups for lunch when they return to school. I love that I could sneak in some extra veggies and my youngest or hubby had no idea. This will for sure be a favourite in our house.
