Hi everyone! It’s Amy from Little Dairy on the Prairie! I’m excited to share my Easy Cheesy Sloppy Joe Bombs with you today!

Sloppy Joes are a well-liked American dish that can be made using various ingredients or sauces that are easily accessible in modern American homes. A sloppy joe is a hamburger bun-based sandwich made with ground beef and other ingredients. Early in the 20th century, in the United States, the dish first appeared. A quick and simple ground venison recipe, these Venison Stuffed Crescent Rolls are the ideal main meal or hearty side dish made with simple ingredients.

Sloppy Joe Stuffed Crescent Rolls Ingredients

Sloppy Joes are called by a number of different names around the United States including Taverns, Hot Tamales, Barbecues, Steamers, Wimpies, Yip Yips, Dynamites, and Slush burgers, and are available on a number of restaurant menus around the country. They are also one of the most popular items served at American barbecues sauce. They are a good source of protein, carbs, vitamins, and minerals. Sloppy joes can be made healthier by reducing their fat and calorie content while increasing their vital nutrient content.

It is high protein food. (Such as meat, fish, poultry, beans, tofu, etc.) during all of our meals. This is due to the fact that protein not only supports bodily functions like muscular protein synthesis, which is essential for the growth and upkeep of our muscles but also because it keeps us feeling full and pleased.

Fiber is a substance we can eat to increase the feeling of fullness after meals, and it is found in plant-based foods. Consuming fiber may improve your digestion and lower your risk of developing chronic diseases.

Because they are crisp on the outside, delicate on the inside, and never sticky, crescent rolls are irresistible. It’s a delicious, satisfying, and hearty comfort meal recipe. The classic crescent shape is just one of the many shapes they can take, along with rings, envelopes, roll-ups, and pinwheels. They can be filled with an endless variety of delicious things! Occasionally savory with meat, it makes a fantastic starter or afternoon snack. Sometimes they come with a sit-down supper! They might be the top or bottom crust of a dish!

How to Make Sloppy Joe Stuffed Crescent Rolls?

  • Set crescent rolls in a greased muffin tin. Press them into the bottom of the pan so it covers the bottom of each muffin spot. Don’t stress if it looks like it’s not fitting perfectly. It will all work out in the end!
  • Spoon a couple of tablespoons of sloppy joe mix over the crescent rolls.
  • Sprinkle cheese over the top.
  • Pull corners of crescent rolls over the top of bombs. It’s completely fine if there are parts of sloppy joe mix and cheese peeking out of the bomb. Just do the best you can, and everything will work itself out in the oven!
  • Sprinkle with seasonings.

Pop the Easy Cheesy Sloppy Joe Crescents in the oven and bake them for 12-14 minutes. They should be golden brown on the top!

Let your stuffed crescent rolls hang out in the muffin pan for just a few minutes to cool a little then serve them. My family likes Easy Cheesy Sloppy Joe Bombs exactly as they are. I’m a little more adventurous when it comes to garnishes like veggies, sour cream, and parsley than my boys are. No doubt adding pretties to the top takes extra effort and time, and if you don’t have time for that it’s no big deal because these are delicious by themselves!

Variation and Substitution

Gluten Free: If you want to have a healthy, gluten-free sloppy joe, the substitutions are simple for this recipe! Just ensure all of your components are free from gluten-containing fillers and serve your sloppy joes on your favorite gluten-free hamburger buns.

With Ground Turkey: If you want these healthy sloppy joes to be a little lower in fat, feel free to substitute the ground beef for ground turkey. Make sure you add a little fat (like butter or avocado oil) to the pan before browning, since the turkey will stick to the pan and brown poorly without a little extra fat.

On Texas Toast: If you love Texas toast, you can serve your sloppy Joes with Texas toast instead of a bun. You can use a plain version or a garlic bread version for extra flavor.

How To Store?

Ø  Crescent roll leftovers can be kept in the refrigerator for up to five days if they are kept in an airtight container or freezer bag. Eat them cold or microwave them at 15-second intervals to reheat them until they are warm enough to eat.

Ø  They can also be frozen for a period of three months. Make sure to label them so you will subsequently be able to identify them precisely.

Ø  To prevent them from sticking together when they freeze, it is a good idea to wrap each one in plastic wrap separately.

Ø You can microwave them until they are warm enough to consume, leave them on the counter for up to two hours, or place them in the refrigerator for 24 hours to thaw.

Hi Amy,

Im wondering do these reheat well? I would like to make them ahead of time and pop in the microwave later in the day. Thanks,

Hi there – I came across your sloppy joe stuffed crescent roll recipe today. I had a crazy weekend, was so tired, looking for something easy. Happened to have all the ingredients on hand including Manwich in the pantry. I use ground turkey instead of beef so I call them “sloppy gobbles”. Served with a simple side salad, husband loved dinner! So it was a win-win! Thanks for posting this recipe.
