  1. 5 for taste & 4 for final product. I love the taste of the meat mixture. The only problem I had with the recipe is that the beef didn't stay on the biscuits once they began to rise in the oven. Made for Zaar Stars Tag
  2. Pretty much followed the recipe although I was very generous with the cheddar cheese on top! These made a nice lunch along with a bowl of soup, & we managed to munch on them throughout the day! Addictive, for sure! Thanks for sharing this great recipe! [Made & reviewed in Zaar Stars Tag]
  3. These should be called mini sloppy joes in a muffin! They are wonderful and so easy to prepare. Perfect blend of spices so that everyone could enjoy them. Used for an afterschool snack with some hungry teenage boys and they are all gone! Almost like magic - they waved their hands and they all disappeared!! Thanks so much for sharing a great recipe again WC. Made during Zaar Stars tag game.
  4. These were great to munch on during the football games ion Sunday! I like that the sauce is sweet and not spicy or tangy, reminded me of sloppy joes. Will make these again; may try cutting the biscuits in half and reshaping to use in a mini-muffin pan for an appie. Made for Week 10 Football Pool win 2010.
  5. I grew up not liking sloppy joes (which is what I would call this barbecue mixture) until I realized that what I didn't like was the commercial brand SJ mix (Manwich). As a result I tend to be pretty picky about sloppy joe recipes, but I really liked this one a lot. I cooked the onion with the beef and used dark brown sugar but otherwise made as directed. When it came to filling the biscuits, though, I only used about half the mixture (and will freeze the rest for another time). I also used jack cheese because it was what I had on hand. I liked these a lot and will definitely make again! Thanks for sharing!
