This weekend I whipped up a new recipe.
The cheeseburger balls have been a huge hit. 
In fact, that recipe is the most viewed page in Crafty Home Improvement (Mis)Adventure history and has been pinned to Pinterest over 400 times.

Why not change them up a bit and 
try them with a sloppy joe twist?

You'll need the following:
1 lb ground beef (or turkey or vegetarian substitute)
1 can Manwich (you can get store brand on a lot of things, but Manwich and toilet paper are not in that category)
Velveeta cheese
2 cans of biscuits (I used 1 can of Grands Jr. and just made half the recipe)
Start by browning the meat and adding the can of Manwich. 
Next, simply flatten out the biscuit dough...
 add a piece of cheese...
 add a scoop of meat mix...
 pinch the dough closed and place seam side down on a greased cookie sheet.
 I brushed the top of mine with an egg wash and topped them with a little shredded cheese and crushed red pepper flakes.
Bake at 400* for 16 minutes. 
(Insert misadventure here: notice the hole in the left picture above? It turned into the exploded mess on the right. 
Lesson learned: be sure to pinch any holes closed.)

They were so delicious!
I'm definitely making these again.

  1. Gahhh I love sloppy joes. But the biscuity bread part? Ya no. So what do I do? Stick all that meaty goodness into a hard taco shell. Why am I so strange, why.

    P.S. you should go share that over at This Gal Cooks too. She always has a Monday link up party for recipes and crafts!

  2. Um, YUM. Can you please come cook in my kitchen??

  3. OMG - there are no words for how awesome this sounds...

  4. I use Rhodes frozen bread dough rolls to do the same thing. Yum!

  5. Oh my goodness that looks soooooooooo good. Dinner. Your house. Tomorrow lol.

  6. um wow. and yummy that too!

  7. yum, you have my brain working... I am thinking about how many things I can wrap into a biscuit and bake it!

  8. I would have never, ever though of doing it this way but it looks so freaking yummy!

  9. These look awesome! Thanks for haring at Must Try Monday!

  10. Great idea! This would be awesome for a neighborhood gathering on Halloween. Please share these at my fall/apple blog hop:

    I am so glad to have seen these on Tasty Tuesdays.

  11. three things wrong with this recipe for me.....1 - Manwich : where the heck do I find this awesomeness over here in the UK??? (originally from your neck of the woods, now im stuck in non-Manwich-having hell!! lol) 2 - whats the UK equivalent to Grands???? arggg and 3 - why do I live here now?!?!? Thanks so much for sharing though, seriously, this rocks!

  12. I can see doing this by just adding another biscuit dough on top and pinching closed around it. Gonna try it next sloppy joe night. New follower from the DO linkup. You can find me at

  13. Hi! Found you on Weekend Potluck. My husband, Mr. Picky eater does love him some manwich and this is perfect for gameday eats! Way less messy. I pinned it and explored your site - love it. Your grandmother sounds exactly like my nana. I wish I had gotten that talent like you were lucky enough to. I love it here and will be subscribing! Nice to meet you. Kalamity Kelli
