This is a somewhat familiar kind of recipe, and pretty simple, but the biscuit and sesame seed topping has a vaguely fancy feel. It really did kind of taste like sloppy joes on a sesame seed bun (albeit with the addition of the cheese). I made this exactly as written, using mostly 85% grond beef and a little 93% I had on hand, and the cheddar was mild, not sharp.
