This is the third “bubble up” recipe from Plain Chicken that I have tried and I think this may be my favorite!  I did use my favorite Salsa Sloppy Joe recipe instead of the original, but I am sure their Joe is great, too. 

This is a quick, easy, and (most importantly) tasty dinner idea.  All you need is a big tossed salad on the side and supper is served.

Sloppy Joe Bubble Up

1 recipe Salsa Sloppy Joe meat

1 can (12 oz.) Pilsbury Jr. Grands biscuits

1 cup shredded cheese of your choice (I used Fiesta mix.)


Prepare the sloppy Joe mixture according to the recipe.  Allow to cool for a few minutes. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and spray a 9×13 pan with cooking spray.

Cut biscuits into quarters and place in medium bowl. Toss biscuits with meat mixture.  Pour biscuit mixture into pan and top with cheese
Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until biscuits are done.

Thanks for joining me today for Book Beginnings.  Join in if you like,  just grab the book your are reading or want to ready.  Jot down the first line or two and give us your feelings about the book.  That’s all there is to it.  Link up at the Book Beginnings party hosted by Rose City Reader and let the fun begin!

My book today is “Milk Glass Moon” by Adriana Trigiani and it is the 3rd installment in the “Big Stone Gap” series.  Here are the first lines:

“The Wise County Fair is my daughter’s favorite event of the year, and I think it’s safe to say that includes Christmas.  Etta has been on her best behavior for the past two weeks, so perfect down to the smallest detail including unassigned chores like making my bed and weeding my garden) that I’m worried.”

I love this series and this author.  Her characters are so real that you think you might be reading about your neighbor down the street or even a relative.  These are people I would love to meet in real life. 

From the first book to the last, Ave Marie seems like she has changed so much, but deep down she is the same scared and vulnerable “strong” woman that we met in the beginning.

I hope you gives these books a try.  Ms. Trigiani’s writing is among the best I have read.
