This fresh and easy take on sloppy joes is sure to be a delicious family weeknight dinner favorite.

Ingredients

1
lb lean (at least 80%) ground beef
1
cup sloppy joe sauce (from 15-oz can)
1
can (8 oz) Pillsbury™ refrigerated crescent dough sheet
4
slices American cheese
Pickle slices, if desired

Steps

  • 1 Heat oven to 375°F. Spray 8 regular-size muffin cups with cooking spray.
  • 2 In 10-inch nonstick skillet, cook beef over medium-high heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring frequently, until no longer pink; drain. Add sloppy joe sauce; cook until heated through. Remove from heat; cool slightly.
  • 3 On large cutting board, unroll dough sheet; cut into 8 squares with sharp knife or pizza cutter. Line each muffin cup by pressing 1 dough square in bottom and up side of cup. On same cutting board, cut cheese slices into quarters, and place one quarter in bottom of each dough-lined cup; divide sloppy joe mixture evenly into each cup, about 1/4 cup each. Top each with remaining quarter of cheese.
  • 4 Bake 14 to 18 minutes or until dough is deep golden brown and filling is heated through. Cool in pan 5 minutes; using metal spatula, run around edge of each muffin cup to remove from pan. Serve with pickle slices.

Expert Tips

Recipe can be prepped up to 2 hours ahead of time. Just refrigerate until ready to bake. You may need to add up to 5 minutes extra bake time with this method.

If you prefer a “sloppier” version of sloppy joes, warm the extra sloppy joe sauce in the microwave, and serve with your sloppy joe crescent cups.
