Example Picture from Ready Set Eat

“It’s not always like the movies.”  Well, in this case, the example picture is not always like the result picture.  Keep reading and you’ll see why I say this.  I found this recipe in a time crunch on Pinterest (SURPRISE!).  I love how easy it is to find a recipe while sitting in the Publix parking lot (thank you, modern technology).

Sloppy Joe Cups Muffins

Sloppy Joe MuffinsMuffin


1 lb. Ground Turkey

1 can (16 oz) Hunt’s Manwich Bold Sloppy Joe Sauce (I used bold to give it a kick)

1/2 onion, chopped

Shredded Colby Jack Cheese

Pillsbury Grands! Homestyle Southern-Style Big Biscuits


Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Heat large skillet over medium-high heat.  Cook ground turkey for 7 minutes, or until turkey is no longer pink.  Drain.  Combine ground turkey, onion, and sloppy joe sauce and heat on medium for 3 (ish) minutes, or until warm.  Set aside.

Grease muffin tin with non-stick spray (I used coconut oil).  Press 1 biscuit into bottom of medium muffin pan and evenly distribute up the sides.  Continue until all biscuits are placed.  Add 1/4 sloppy joe mixture to each up (After pouring into cup, I used the bottom of the measuring cup to press the meat mixture into place).

Pillsbury Pre-Oven

Bake for 12 minutes, or until biscuits are golden brown.  (I used the time suggested on the biscuits).  Remove from oven and sprinkle cheese. Enjoy!

What I Changed From Guide Recipe

I used ground turkey instead of ground beef.  Usually I hear others saying, “Turkey is too dry.”  Well, I thought that since I was going to cover it in sauce, it would keep the mixture moist (sorry for those who dislike this word.  “Wet” just doesn’t sound right.).  I spiced up the Sloppy Joe Sauce by purchasing the BOLD instead of REGULAR.  This recipe calls for Texas-Style Buttermilk Biscuits, but my Publix didn’t have these.  One quick phone call to Grandma and we determined Pillsbury Southern Style Biscuits would be okay for an equivalent (Grandma knows best!).

What I Would Change

Next time, I would use smaller biscuits to see if they turn out like the recipe I used as a guide.  Although the cups were “poofier” than the example, hubby still ate everything on his plate (and kept it down and NO it wasn’t in the trashcan).  Therefore, poofier = delicious.
