Tailgate Sloppy Joe Muffins

marie V.


My mom gave me this recipe 27 years ago. And is affectionately known as "Sloppy Muffins"
My family loves them and I always double the recipe to make 24 muffins!
They are warm and hearty with gooey, cheesy awesomeness. . Super easy to transport and eat.No utensils required....just pick it up and literally eat it like a muffin "or a savory, meaty cupcake" A fotball sunday or tailgate favorite because they free up your other hand for.....well, lets just say a football sunday " beverage " !!!
