Busy Day Sloppy Joe Hot Pockets

Busy Day Sloppy Joe Hot Pockets

1 pound of ground beef or ground turkey, browned and fat drained
1 (14.5 ounce) can Sloppy Joe Sauce mix
2 cups frozen peas
3 cups frozen hash browns
1 package/tube of premade biscuit dough
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese

Preheat over to 350 degrees F. Line baking sheet with parchment paper or silicon baking mat.

In a large pan over medium high heat, brown the ground beef and drain the fat. Add Sloppy Joe Sauce, frozen peas, and hash browns. Stir together to combine. Let the Sloppy Joe Sauce just come to a boil and turn the heat down to medium-low. Let simmer until the peas and hash browns have softened up.

Split apart one of the biscuit rounds into two circles. Take one of the dough circles and, using your fingers, stretch the edges of the dough and keep rotating the circle while your stretching the edges until it reaches 3 inches across in diameter. Place the stretched dough on the baking sheet.

Scoop a heaping teaspoonful of the prepared meat mixture and place in the center of the dough circle. Sprinkle some shredded cheese on top of the meat mixture. Fold the circle into a half-moon shape enclosing the filling. Pinch the edges of the dough together to seal. If you want to get fancy you can use a fork to press down the edges into a crimped border. Repeat this process until all the biscuit dough is used up.

Place the baking sheet of hot pockets in the oven and bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until the dough is a light golden brown. Remove from oven and let cool for a few minutes. Serve with sour cream or ketchup for dipping.

Makes 4 to 6 servings.
