This was great with some changes, all of which I would recommend again. I browned half an onion (chopped), then added the beef and browned. Then I added 12 ounce of frozen corn and some frozen sweet peppers, a can of hominy (drained), and the sloppy joe sauce, some hot sauce and garlic powder, and some ketchup. Everything went in a 19x12 pan. The biscuits were a small size can (6 ounces), cut in half, and placed cut side down at the extreme edges of the pan. They cooked perfectly. Delicious! A real pantry pleaser.
I've made this 2 or 3 times now. It's cheap, easy and delicious. I too had a hard time with the biscuits. Next time I may just lay them over the top, if they're immersed AT ALL, that part doesn't cook. I added some shredded cheese to the top. The recipe on Pillsbury.com calls for Jr. Biscuits, but I couldn't find any. All in all though...a tasty tummy filler.
Reminds me of when I was a kid. My mom would take half of the biscuits and spread them on the bottom of the greased pan first, then top with sloppy joe mix. She would also place slices of American cheese on top of the sloppy joe mix before putting the other half of the biscuits on the cheese. It made it look like a sloppy joe sandwich casserole. My DH really liked this as he thought it was easier to eat with a fork.
