About a week ago, we tried our hand at sloppy joe turnovers. I found a recipe on Little Birdie Secrets and decided it was a great time to try them. I ended up not liking them as much as I thought I would. The kids ate them and were much less messy than usual! Next time we will use a sloppy joe seasoning mix or Mamwich instead of making it from scratch. It just didn't have the zesty flavor of our usual sloppy joes.

To make the from scratch version of sloppy joe turnovers, you need:
1 lb. ground beef
10 oz. can refrigerated flaky biscuits
1/4 c. onion
1/2 c. ketchup
1/4 c. sour cream
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. garlic powder

-Heat oven to 375 degrees. Brown ground beef and onion in a skillet. Add ketchup, sour cream, salt and garlic powder. Simmer for 2 minutes. Roll out biscuits (just stretch them out a bit with your hands). Place a heaping spoonful of meat mixture in the center of each biscuit. Fold over the biscuit to cover meat and seal the edges with a fork. Cut a slit on the top of biscuit. Bake turnovers on a cookie sheet for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown on top.

If you want to do it the way we are going to next time, you need:
1 lb hamburger
1 can mamwich/pkg of sloppy joe seasoning
10 oz. can refrigerated flaky biscuits

- Prepare the biscuits the same way as above. Brown burger and add seasoning (follow directions on can or bag). Spoon meat mixture onto biscuit and fold over, pressing the edges together with a fork. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden on top.
