I love to think of little ways to make things enjoyable for the girls and it gives me so much joy in my heart to see their faces when I do! I found this idea in a little Pillsbury Halloween book I picked up. It's called Sloppy Joe Pizza! The original recipe calls for corn, but since I am allergic, I left that part out of ours :-)
1 can refrigerated buttermilk homestyle biscuits
1 lb lean ground beef ( or turkey, which is what I used)
1 can sloppy joe sauce
1 can whole kernel corn (not for us!)
8 slices American cheese ( or how many you need, more or less)
8 small pieces green bell pepper
1) Heat oven to 375 degrees. Separate dough into 8 biscuits. Place on large ungreased cookie sheet; press each biscuit to form 4 1/2 inch round. Bake 10-12 mins or until golden brown
2) Meanwhile, in 12 inch nonstick skillet, cook beef over medium heat 8 to 10 mins., stirring occasionally until thoroughly cooked; drain. Stir in sloppy joe sauce and corn. Reduce heat to medium-low; cook 3 to 5 mins., stirring occasionally, until hot
3) Cut cheese into rounds. (I used a pumpkin cookie cutter) Use knife to do face.
4) Remove biscuits from oven. Spoon beef mixture evenly onto biscuit rounds. Arrange cheese rounds over beef mixture to look like jack o lanterns, Place bell pepper piece on top of each to look like a stem. Return to oven, bake 3 to 5 mins or until cheese is melted. (We just let the heat soften ours :-) )
ENJOY!! Get ready for lots of smiles!
Hope you all have a great night! Hope to get more goodies posted tomorrow. :-)
