Well folks, another Bengals away game is in the books and another Sunday Funday recipe is in my stomach. As you know, our last experiment with cheeseburger eggrolls was a pretty big flop. I avoided such risky endeavors this week.
Thanks to a Pillsbury commercial, we are back in the good-tasting and appealing-looking food creation world. If you saw the commercial then you know what’s coming… Sloppy Joe Biscuit Thingys. The commercial talks about some Sloppy Joe Pocket things, but the first recipe I came to on their website was for Sloppy Joe Biscuit Cups. Good enough for me. You can find the recipe w/comments and about a thousand other bizarre uses for biscuits here. I’ll just share with you what I did (which is, of course, take out all the nasty crap like onions and peppers)
So here we go… Sloppy Joe Biscuits
¾ lb ground beef
¼ cup ketchup
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 can (16.3 oz) Pillsbury® Grands!® Homestyle refrigerated buttermilk biscuits
½ cup shredded pepper Jack or Cheddar cheese (2 oz)
1. Heat oven to 375°F. In 10-inch skillet, cook beef over medium-high heat until beef is thoroughly cooked; drain. Stir in ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, and brown sugar.
2. Separate dough into 8 biscuits; place each biscuit in ungreased regular-size muffin cups (2 3/4×1 1/4 inches). Firmly press dough in bottom and up side of each cup, forming 1/4-inch rim. If desired, brush tops and sides of biscuits with an egg wash before baking. To make the egg wash, beat 1 egg yolk and 1/4 teaspoon water until well blended.
3. Spoon about 1/3 cup beef mixture into dough-lined cups. Sprinkle each biscuit with 1 tablespoon shredded cheese.
4. Bake 17 to 20 minutes or until biscuits are golden brown and cheese is melted.
All I can say is these little puppies taste pretty amazing. The only thing I would change if I made them again (which I will) is add more ketchup and Worcestershire sauce as my final product wasn’t very “sloppy”. I think I used closer to a pound of ground beef and it threw off the numbers.
Eat and be manly.
