When you were a kid did you have sloppy joes that came from adding hamburger meat to a can of sloppy joe mix? It may not have been the healthiest thing to eat, but to a kid it was so good. For the longest time I never realized all that goodness came from a can.
These little sloppy joe biscuits certainly do not come from a can. Well, ok the biscuits do so scratch that first thought. They do have some frozen veggies in them too but that’s alright because they come from a bag.
Now it’s almost Super Bowl time and Valentine’s Day so I’m incorporating both with this dish. The little muffin tin style would work well for a Super Bowl party. The ones made in the silicone heart shape muffin tins would be cute for the kiddos for V-Day. And the ones in the small casserole dishes are more along the lines of what the Pillsbury chefs had in mind with the name of the recipe. Either way you make them, they will be gobbled up.
Note: the cute little casserole dishes came from Michael’s and were only $3 each. I’m thinking I need some more.
