  2. Prepare Sloppy Joe Filling:
    • In a skillet, brown the ground hamburger meat over medium heat until fully cooked.

  4. Add Cheese and Sloppy Joe Filling:
    • Sprinkle a generous amount of freshly grated sharp cheddar cheese onto each flattened biscuit.
    • Spoon a portion of the Sloppy Joe meat onto one half of each biscuit.
  5. Fold and Seal:
    • Carefully fold the other half of each biscuit over the Sloppy Joe filling, creating a pocket.
    • Use a fork to press and seal the edges of the biscuit pocket, ensuring the filling is enclosed.
  6. Bake:
    • Place the prepared biscuit pockets in the preheated oven and bake for 8-10 minutes or until the biscuits are golden brown.
  7. Clean Up Time:
    • While the biscuit pockets are baking, take advantage of the magical oven time to clean up the mess and dishes.
  8. Serve and Enjoy:
    • Once baked, remove the biscuit pockets from the oven and let them cool for a few minutes before serving.

  9. Reheating:
    • If reheating, pop the biscuit pockets back in the oven for about 3 minutes. Avoid using the microwave to maintain the desired texture.

Best Tips to Make Cheesy Sloppy Joe Biscuit Pockets:

  1. Freshly Grated Cheese:
    • Use freshly grated sharp cheddar cheese for the best flavor and meltability. Freshly grated cheese tends to have a superior texture and melts more smoothly compared to pre-packaged shredded cheese.
  2. Sloppy Joe Sauce:
    • Choose a Sloppy Joe sauce that you enjoy. Whether using Manwich or another brand, selecting a sauce with the right balance of sweetness and savory flavors can enhance the overall taste of your biscuit pockets.
  3. Even Biscuit Thickness:
    • When flattening the canned biscuits, aim for even thickness. This ensures that the biscuits will bake uniformly and the pockets will seal properly without any thin or thick spots.
  4. Proper Sealing:
    • Seal the biscuit pockets tightly with a fork to prevent any leakage of the Sloppy Joe filling during baking. Press the edges firmly to create a secure seal.
  5. Cooking Spray:
    • Use cooking spray on the cookie sheet to prevent the biscuit pockets from sticking. This makes for easier removal and helps achieve a golden, crispy exterior.
  6. Preheating the Oven:
    • Ensure that the oven is fully preheated before placing the biscuit pockets inside. This contributes to even cooking and helps the biscuits rise properly.
  7. Cleaning During Bake Time:
    • Take advantage of the baking time to clean up the kitchen. This helps streamline the cooking process and minimizes the post-cooking cleanup.
  8. Monitor Baking Time:
    • Keep a close eye on the biscuit pockets during the last few minutes of baking to prevent overcooking. Baking times may vary, so aim for a golden brown color.
  9. Let Them Cool:
    • Allow the biscuit pockets to cool for a few minutes before serving. This allows the cheese and Sloppy Joe filling to set slightly, making them easier to handle.
  10. Reheating Method:
    • When reheating, use the oven instead of the microwave. This helps maintain the crispy texture of the biscuit exterior and prevents them from becoming doughy.
  11. Customize to Taste:
    • Feel free to customize the recipe by adding other ingredients like diced onions, bell peppers, or spices to the Sloppy Joe mixture, based on your taste preferences.
  12. Serve with Sides:
    • Consider serving Cheesy Sloppy Joe Biscuit Pockets with sides like a fresh salad or coleslaw for a well-rounded and satisfying meal.
