  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.

  • 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.

Oh. My. Goodness. I have made these three times now, and I am ADDICTED!! So delicious, and SO simple! I have made a few adjustments... So I made these for my best friend's Bridal Shower that I was both catering and hosting, so I had to make them a bit more dainty. I added red and green bell peppers to the filling, and made them smaller. After prepping 48 of these bad boys,(triple recipe) I have come up with a quick and simple procedure to make these worth the effort. Roll each biscuit flat, then cut in half horizontally. place a piece of cheese (I used sandwich sliced Cojack from Sargento) on each half, diagonally from each other. (I do top left and bottom right) then spoon a small amount of the filling. Fold the uncovered dough over (Top piece goes right to left, bottom piece goes right to left) then crimp very well with a fork and place on baking sheet. Keep going until baking sheet is full. Then baste each picket with egg wash (I just use my finger, it's faster and easier) and then re-crimp with a fork and reshape delicately with your hands. They should look like little clams. Bake until golden brown! These were SUCH a hit at my party, and were the only item I served that had no left overs. I kept a couple reserved for myself, and reheated them the next day in the toaster oven, and they were just as delicious. Thank you for an AMAZING recipe!!! I will be using this again, and again, and again!!


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 sauce, this recipe was a hit in my house. In the future, I think I'll include a very light sprinkling of shredded cheddar to the pocket before sealing it.
