Directions

  1. Cook and stir the ground beef and onion in a skillet over medium heat, breaking the meat up into crumbles as it cooks, until the meat is well browned, about 10 minutes. Drain the fat from the beef in a colander. Return beef to skillet, and stir in sour cream, ketchup, salt, and garlic powder. Bring the mixture to a simmer, reduce heat, and simmer while you make the pockets.
  2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  3. Unroll the biscuits on a floured work surface, and lightly roll each biscuit out to a square about 4 inches on a side. Arrange the squares on a baking sheet. Spoon 2 to 3 tablespoons of the beef mixture into the center of each square, and fold a corner over to meet its opposite corner, making a triangle. Seal the edges with a fork, and cut three small slits into the top of each pocket.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, 15 to 20 minutes. Brush each pocket with melted butter.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note
  • If I'm short on time, I sometimes use a can of sloppy joe sauce and omit everything besides the beef, biscuit dough, and butter.

Sorry; we didn't like them. The sloppy joe flavor didn't mesh at all with the biscuit flavor. We wound up opening up the pockets and spooning out the meat filling to put on hotdog buns. But e...

my family gobbled these up! i used my own homemade biscuit mix and brushed melted butter over the tops when they finished cooking. i'll be making this at least once a week now! thanks!!!

I only gave this four stars based upon the fact that I used my only sloppy joe sauce recipe. The idea to enclose sloppy joe mixture in biscuit is pretty good. With this idea and my sloppy joe sa...

These weren't easy to make. Maybe I used to much filling. They were awkward to close. They tasted pretty good.

I made these for a small party I had and they were a hit! For being so simple, they were very good. Even my brothers, who were dubious about eating "a hamburger in a biscuit" enjoyed them. T...
