Are you looking for something fun and different to make for dinner? Then try these Sloppy Joe Cups! I have two different versions for you today depending on your tastes, give ’em a try 😀

Sloppy Joe Biscuit Cups Recipe

This first one is from

Sloppy Joe Biscuit Cups

Prep Time: 30 Min

Total Time: 50 Min

Makes: 8 servings


3/4  lb lean (at least 80%) ground beef
1/4 cup chopped onion
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1/4 cup chopped red bell pepper
1/4 cup ketchup
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 can (16.3 oz) Pillsbury® Grands!® Homestyle refrigerated buttermilk biscuits
1/2 cup shredded pepper Jack or Cheddar cheese (2 oz)


1.  Heat oven to 375°F. In 10-inch skillet, cook beef, onion, garlic and bell pepper over medium-high heat until beef is thoroughly cooked; drain. Stir in ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, pepper and brown sugar.
2.  Separate dough into 8 biscuits; place each biscuit in ungreased regular-size muffin cups (2 3/4×1 1/4 inches). Firmly press dough in bottom and up side of each cup, forming 1/4-inch rim. If desired, brush tops and sides of biscuits with an egg wash before baking. To make the egg wash, beat 1 egg yolk and 1/4 teaspoon water until well blended.
3.  Spoon about 1/3 cup beef mixture into dough-lined cups. Sprinkle each biscuit with 1 tablespoon shredded cheese.
4.  Bake 17 to 20 minutes or until biscuits are golden brown and cheese is melted.
Now this second recipe is a little different and comes from Heavenly Homemakers.
Sloppy Cornbread Muffins
These are made with CORNBREAD instead of biscuits!! YUM 😀
To make Sloppy Cornbread Muffins you will need:

1 recipe of Cornbread Click here for a homemade recipe or just use Jiffy mix, lol!
1/4 recipe of Sloppy Joes (which is 1/2 pound of meat) Again click on Sloppy Joes for a homemade recipe or you can go with Manwich 😉 or in both cases use your own recipe, it’s up to you!

This will make 12 sloppy cornbread muffins.

Tip: These freeze and reheat very well…which means you may want to make a double batch!


1. First preheat your oven to 400°  and  spray your muffin tin with cooking spray.( I know, above they are in liners, but they tend to stick to those so I advise going without.)

2. Fill your muffin cups half full with cornbread batter.

3. Spoon about a Tablespoon or two of Sloppy Joe meat into each muffin cup.

4. Bake in oven for 20 minutes.

Now for an EXTRA BONUS today, I have for you a Dairy & Soy Free version of this recipe. If that’s what you need then go HERE.

Happy Friday everyone and let the weekend muffin tin fun begin!! 😀
