Hi everyone! I’m back today with the Sloppy Joe Hot Pocket recipe I promised you all this week. There is just something so delicious that happens when buttery biscuits get packed with tangy, sweet meat and veggies. The sour cream adds a rich creaminess to the sloppy joe filling. Feel free to get creative with your filling adding potatoes, sausage, different veggies, and sauces.
This basic recipe is one I created in college when I was a poor, starving student that wanted a Healthy Hot Pocket made with real ingredients. It’s not fancy but I love it and it is totally ok to eat this meal with your hands. For those wondering, yep, I still sing the “Hot Pockets” commercial in my head as I make them.
I love eating these fresh out of the oven, but they also freeze very well when individually wrapped and stored in a sealed bag or container.
SLOPPY JOE HOT POCKETS (print it!)
- 1/2 lb lean ground beef or turkey
- 1 small onion, diced
- 1/2 green bell pepper, diced
- 1/2 tsp garlic salt
- 1/4 tsp black pepper
- 1/2 cup ketchup
- 1/4 cup fat free sour cream
- 8 refrigerator biscuits ( I use these Trader Joe’s Buttermilk Biscuits)
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a medium nonstick pan with nonstick spray. Place on medium heat and add the ground meat, onion and bell pepper. Cook until browned, about 6-8 minutes. Remove from heat.
- Sprinkle mixture with garlic salt, black pepper. Stir in ketchup and sour cream until combined.
- Lightly flour an area to roll out the biscuits flat. Roll each biscuit until it’s about 1/4 inch thick. Scoop 1/3 cup sloppy joe mix in the middle. Fold over and use a fork to seal both edges. Use a sharp knife to cut a small slit in the top. Repeat until all biscuits are filled.
- Place on baking sheet and bake until golden, about 12-14 minutes.
