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

Easy Sloppy Joe Cups

Ingredients:

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

Easy Sloppy Joe Cups

Directions:

  1. Preheat Oven to 350F.
  2. 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.
  3. 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)
  4. 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.
  5. Take a large tablespoon of the meat mixture and place into the biscuit in the pan. They will look like little tarts.
  6. Bake in the over for 12-15 minutes or until the biscuit itself is a nice golden brown.
  7. 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.
  8. Enjoy

Easy Sloppy Joe Cups

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.

What is your go to recipe?

    I love this recipe, can these perhaps be frozen and reheated another day do you think?
