Baked Sloppy Joe With Biscuits
Blue Ribbon Recipe
This is a fantastic rustic sloppy joe recipe. It's super easy to make the sauce - in fact, you probably have the ingredients in your kitchen. Cooking the biscuits on top is genius. It's wonderful to serve the sloppy joes with a big biscuit on top. As you cut into it with a fork, scoop up some of the sloppy joe, and eat it all together it's a tasty bite. We love the option of cooking over a campfire. An easy camping dinner option. The Test Kitchen

How to Make Baked Sloppy Joe With Biscuits
- After the meat mixture has been browned and drained, add the flour, Worcestershire sauce, ketchup, salt, pepper, and water. If you have a favorite Sloppy Joe recipe, you can certainly use it as the meat mixture for this meal in place of the recipe described to this point. Whatever meat mixture you are using, stir well and bring the mixture to a boil. Be sure the mixture is very moist (but not watery) as it will be baked along with the biscuits.
- Bake, uncovered, according to the directions on the biscuit package until the biscuits are golden brown. If you are cooking outdoors with hot briquets and a 12" camp-style Dutch oven (one that has three legs and a lid that is concave and has a lip to hold the briquets in place), place 8 briquets under the cast-iron Dutch oven and 24 on the lid. Bake, covered, until the biscuits are golden brown. If you have never used your cast iron Dutch oven outdoors with briquets, this is a great recipe for starters. It is very easy to get wonderful results! This can also be made in a 12-inch cast iron skillet or an enamel coated Dutch oven.
