Recipe by Danielle K.

An easy not messy way for kids to eat sloppy joes in a matter of minutes. The basic idea was taken from pillsbury.

The refridgerator dinner rolls I bought were more like biscuits and I had to roll them out to get large enough circle to fill the the sloppy joe mix, I don't know what kind of rolls I should have bought, the package just said "dinner rolls". I think these would have been very good with croissant dough (leaving out the egg and sesame seeds). I had made a double batch of the meat mixture and served some in tortillas, and even some on toasted bread.
