Sloppy Joes is one of those comfort foods beloved by both kids and adults (especially runners). Most of us were introduced to this dish in the school cafeteria (before Michelle Obama got involved). There are many things to recommend it. It is easy to prepare, it’s a frugal meal, and it is packed with protein and other nutrients, depending on what you choose to add to the mix. Yes, you can sneak in those veggies that kids ordinarily shun!

This particular recipe is a twist on the original given that the meat mixture is spooned into “volcanoized” biscuits. An added benefit is that the delicious leftovers can be refrigerated and then packed in plastic baggies to take for lunch.

The Preparation and Cooking Procedure

  1. Preheat the oven to 375°
  2. Separate the biscuits and place them on a greased (or sprayed) baking sheet.
  3. Use the bottom of a glass to make a cup in the center of each one; be careful not to push all the way through. Set aside.
  4. Brown the meat with the peppers and onions. Drain the fat.
  5. Stir in the mustard, barbecue sauce and 1 cup of the cheese
  6. Stir and cook on low heat just until the cheese melts, about two minutes.
  7. Spoon the mixture into the biscuit cups, slightly domed; refer to image at top of article.
  8. Bake for 15 minutes or until the biscuits are slightly browned.
  9. Sprinkle with remaining cheese and onions and bake for 3 more minutes.
  10. Remove, serve, and enjoy!
