Sloppy Joe Turnovers

This is a totally kid friendly meal!

They can help you make it and that will totally make them want to eat it! It worked for me! My kids helped roll out the biscuits and fill the biscuits up with the filling.

I found this recipe on Babycenter. Again, a trusted place for me to find great, fun, tasty, and easy recipes!

I added a tablespoon or two of BBQ sauce and a tad bit more of sour cream. We made 4 turnovers and 4 muffin variations to see which ones the kids liked best, and they preferred the turnover version.

Sloppy Joe Turnovers

1 lb ground beef (or turkey)
1/4 cup chopped onion (or onion powder)
1/2 cup ketchup
1/4 cup sour cream (lite)
1/2 t salt
1/4 t garlic powder
10-oz can Hungry Jack Flaky
Biscuits (10 biscuits) (larger biscuits work better)

Preheat oven to 375º.

Brown the ground beef and onion, drain. Add the ketchup, sour cream, salt and garlic powder, stir to combine.

Roll out dough to 4” round. Place 1/4 cup (or so) meat mixture in center and fold over top. Seal edges firmly with fork. Bake 15 minutes.

’s notes: I use ground turkey, light sour cream, and reduced fat biscuits (when I can find them). Turn it into a casserole by using two cans of refrigerated pizza dough. Press one can of dough into bottom of casserole dish, spread meat mixture on top. Carefully lay the second piece of dough on top and stretch to cover casserole. Pinch together any tears. Bake at 375º for 20-25 minutes. Make sure center is done. If not, cover with foil and put on bottom rack for another 5-10 minutes. Cut into squares.

To freeze: Whenever I make this recipe I double the filling, and freeze half of it. Then when ready, thaw the filling and make the individual turnovers (or a casserole) with fresh dough. Also makes an excellent pizza topping, with grated cheddar sprinkled on top.

Muffin tin variation: Grease muffin tins and press in biscuits. Fill with 3-4 tablespoons meat. Top with cheese. Bake at 375 degrees for 12 minutes.
