Sloppy Joe Pockets are an easy go-to meal and perfect for using up leftovers!
My family loves sloppy joes. We eat them at least a few times a month and they are just an easy all around meal that all the kids, including my husband, seem to enjoy. I like to make my sloppy joes with homemade sauce. My mom used to buy Manwich and that was my go-to after I married my husband. Throughout the years though I began simplifying our meals and relying less and less on pre-made and store bought foods filled with preservatives and who knows what else.
My homemade sloppy joes are so easy to make and I promise once you try them you won’t go back to the store bought stuff. When I make sloppy joes we always end up having leftovers. I’m not a huge leftover fan but I always try my best to use up what’s in the fridge. I’ve found the best way to use up leftovers is to put a twist on them. My family loves refrigerated crescent rolls and biscuits. Both are great for quick and easy meals that everyone will eat with no complaints. These easy sloppy joe pockets only use three ingredients: cheese, sloppy joe meat and refrigerated biscuits. Try them and I bet you’ll love them.
