    We used this for inspiration for dinner today. I used my own sloppy joe mix and only added the parm cheese not the extra cheese. I reserved some meat and we added that to some of the extra bread. Thanks

    These are excellent Kittencal. My children are eating them as I type this review. I didn't have the refrigerated biscuits, so I had to make my own and added more sauce to the meat mixture. Thanks again for sharing another great recipe.

    Well, Kittencal, yet another recipe of yours that is a hit with my family. With 4 boys between 9 and 15, you can imagine there are varied tastes - with my 2 youngest being quite picky. First of all, I doubled the recipe and used ground turkey as that was already thawed out. I omitted the onion, celery and green pepper and used onion powder instead when I browned the meat. I filled up the 12 muffin compartments first and rolled out half of the remaining biscuits and lined the bottom and sides of my Pampered Chef small deep dish baker (stone). I added the remaining mixture and topped with a couple of tablespoons finely shredded cheddar. I rolled out the remaining half of the biscuit dough and placed over top - pressing the bottom and top dough edges together against the inside of the deep dish baker. I sprinkled about 1 tablespoon of shredded cheddar over the top of the crust as everything is better with cheese. I baked it along with the biscuit cups leaving it in until the crust was golden. It served up perfectly in wedges. All 6 of us had both the cups and the pie. What a great flavor. A huge hit. Thanks so much.

    I didn't make these myself, but I had them at a party where one of the guests had tried this recipe. They were really yummy and a big hit with the kids! I will be making myself soon.
