12 turkey cups


  • 1 (16.3 ounce) can refrigerated flaky biscuit dough

  • 2 teaspoons vegetable oil

  • 1 pound ground turkey

  • 1 (1.25 ounce) package taco seasoning mix

  • 1 (15 ounce) can sloppy joe sauce

  • 3 slices Borden® American Singles, cut into 4 small squares


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  2. Separate 6 biscuits into 2 rounds each. Gently stretch each round into a 5-inch circle. Press into cups of a non-stick muffin tin.

  3. Lightly oil a skillet and place over medium-high heat. Cook turkey in skillet, separating into small pieces as it browns. When turkey is no longer pink, turn heat down to medium-low. Add taco seasoning, stirring to combine. Stir in Sloppy Joe sauce; continue cooking until heat through, about 5 minutes.

  4. Fill biscuit-lined muffin cups with turkey mixture.

  5. Bake in preheated oven until browned and hot, about 13 minutes.

  6. Divide each slice of cheese into quarters, and place one-quarter slice on top of each filled cup.

  7. Bake 3 minutes more, or until cheese is melted.

  8. Allow to cool in the pan 5 minutes, then place on a rack until cool enough to eat.

Cook's Note:

Feel free to experiment with toppings or add-ins. Substitute diced pepperoni for the taco seasoning mix, and sub mozzarella or provolone for the American cheese, for a pizza take on the recipe. These are also good at room temperature.
