Sloppy Joe Biscuit Cups

I’m a busy teacher and mom, so weekday meals with shortcuts are a huge help. I always have to share the recipe when I take these to school. —Julie Ahern, Waukegan, Illinois

    Having this for dinner right now! The only change I made was no peppers or celery as no one in the house likes them. The leftovers make a great lunch for tomorrow.

    Love this recipe, but had not made it for a while, however, I will be real soon. I tweak it just a little bit by using whole wheat pizza dough (Trader Joe's) everything else is the same this is a tastey recipe and easy to put together.

    These are tasty plus easy and quick to prepare. I didn't have celery so I left it out. I recommend barbecue sauce on the side for dipping.

    A 12 yr old boy won a Pillsbury bake-off contest many, many yrs ago with a recipe like this. Didn't have celery. Used barbeque sauce & was called bar-b-cups. They are quick & tasty-

    We really liked these. One thing that helped in preparation: I rolled each biscuit out between the halves of a folded piece of waxed paper. (Those dang biscuits really want to return to their original size and shape!). I was out of cheddar cheese, but mozzarella was quite tasty.
