Tips

Sloppy Joes are perfect for busy-day meals and casual dinner parties because the filling is easily prepared ahead. Flavors improve while the filling rests in the refrigerator for up to a day.

Try Sloppy Joe Shortcakes: Bake one 16.3-ounce can Pillsbury® Grands!® Refrigerated buttermilk Layer Biscuits as directed on the label. Split the hot biscuits in half. Spoon the meat mixture onto biscuit bottoms; cover with biscuit tops; sprinkle with shredded Cheddar cheese.

Serve the Sloppy Joe filling over cooked ravioli. Pass the pepper mill and a bowl of freshly grated Parmesan cheese.
