As I’ve mentioned before, I’m not a big sports fan. In fact, I’m not even a small sports fan. Totally uninterested!
But I can appreciate “Game-Day Cuisine” for the big flavors and “calories be damned” attitude. Sloppy Joe Stuffed Biscuits have big flavor and we really don’t want to count the calories, do we?
I happened to have some Sloppy Joes leftover from dinner the other night. So I decided to make a stuffed bread with it, since bread stuffed with meat and cheese is definitely good game-day fare.
I considered putting the leftovers into puff pastry or pie dough to make a meaty turnover. I also considered tucking the Joes into yeast risen Buttermilk Dinner Rolls. I think both of those would be delish. But I settled on my Buttermilk Biscuits as the container because; A-who doesn’t love Buttermilk Biscuits? and B-they’re easy and quick to make.
I use Asiago cheese in the filling because I love the sharp flavor with Sloppy Joes. Mozzarella or provolone would also work really well. Really, any melty cheese would work here.
These biscuits are fairly large, big enough to serve as a entree if you have a veggie and/or salad on the side. You could also use a smaller biscuit cutter (maybe 2″ instead of 3″) and make appetizer-size Sloppy Joe Stuffed Biscuits.
I’ve given a quick Sloppy Joe recipe, but I honestly never really use a recipe to make Sloppy Joe’s. I’ll often throw in any leftover veggies to bulk up the nutrition and reduce the amount of meat per serving. In this batch I added some frozen greens I had in the freezer from my summer farm share. I know this goes against the “calories be damned” attitude, but I like the flavor of the Joes with extra veggies, honestly!
Of course you can use your own recipe or even pre-made Sloppy Joes. Do let the filling chill completely before using so that it’s thick enough to scoop onto the biscuit rounds.
