Sloppy joes are a fun, delicious, family friendly meal, but they tend to be scary messy, with all the meat and sauce dripping out of your bun.  After making these scrumptious cheeseburger cups, I started thinking about what else I could bake up in a cute and easy little biscuit cup, and I decided sloppy joes would be perfect served in a biscuit.

There’s nothing fancy about this recipe, you can use the canned sauce like I do, to go with your choice of ground beef or turkey, or use your own favorite recipe.  The only difference, is instead of putting the meat on a bun, you dish it into a tidy little biscuit cup… Although then technically they’re not “sloppy” anymore.  😛

1 to 1 1/2 pounds ground beef or turkey, cooked thoroughly and drained
1 15 to 16 ounce can sloppy joe sauce (I like Hickory flavor)
1 can small or junior size biscuits (10 count)
