Sloppy Joe's square Recipe

Pin It
I just can't get past it!  Every time I make Sloppy Joe's I have to sing the SNL song by Adam Sandler.  I was singing it and really jamming to the max enjoying myself as I was cooking up this dish.  My four year old thought I was being so weird.  She told me that they weren't Sloppy Joe's that they were Princess Hamburgers!  Princess Hamburgers just don't have the same ring to it that Sloppy Joe's has.  Plus, how could I sing my favorite cooking song if they were called Princess Hamburgers?  So I convinced her that we could call these beauties Princess Joe's.  The song can still be sung as Princess Joe's so it worked for both of us.  These Princess Joe's turned out super yummy and came together very quickly.  My kids and husband loved it and everyone went to bed with a full belly.  I found the original recipe here.

You will need Ketchup, Chopped Onion, Chopped Bell Pepper, Grated Carrots, Pillsbury Big & Buttery Crescent Rolls, Chili Powder, Canola Oil, Ground Beef, Worcestershire sauce, Red Wine Vinegar, and Grated Cheese.

Add a bit of Canola Oil to a pan over medium heat.  Toss in the Onion, Pepper, and Carrots and saute them for about 5 minutes until they start to soften.

Add in the Ground Beef, season it with Salt & Pepper, and get it good and Brown.  Then add in the Ketchup and Chili Powder.  Lower heat to a simmer and let go about 20 minutes.

Make sure you get the Pillsbury Big & Buttery Crescent Rolls..not only are they 50% Bigger...but...that's what the recipe calls for. 

Grab a 9x13 dish and spread out one of the dough canisters, making sure to pinch together the perforations, and pressing it up the sides.  Do not grease the pan!

When the meat is all done add it to the baking dish.

Top with the Shredded Cheddar Cheese.

Make a tasty crust by placing the last canister of Crescent roll dough on top.  Try not to look at the section on the right...I'm not exactly sure how I mangled it so horrifically.  Bake in a 350 degree oven for 30-35 minutes.

Check about half way through and top with foil if it starts to get too brown.  You don't want the yummy top to burn.

Tasty stuff!

Can you see the ooey gooey Cheese peeking out!  I love Cheese!

1 tsp Canola Oil
1 Onion Chopped
1/2 Bell Pepper Chopped
2 Carrots Peeled and Shredded
1 Lb Ground Beef
1 C Ketchup
1/2 C Water
2-4 TBSP Worcestershire Sauce (I used at least 3)
1 TBSP Red Wine Vinegar
2 tsp Chili Powder
2 Cans Pillsbuyr, Big & Buttery Crescent Roll dough
2 C shredded Cheddar Cheese
Salt & Pepper to taste

Pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees.  Warm a large non-stick skillet over medium heat and add in the Canola Oil.  Cook the Onion, Bell Pepper, And Carrots for about five minutes until they begin to soften.  Add in the Ground Beef and Salt & Pepper and cook until browned.  Mix in the Worcestershire Sauce, Red Wine Vinegar, and Chili Powder.  Stir together well and let simmer for about 20 minutes.  

Grab an ungreased 9x13 baking dish and unroll the first can of Crescent dough.  Place the dough in the bottom of the dish and press together the perforations and press up on the sides.  When the Beef mixture is done add it into the baking dish.  Top it with the Shredded Cheddar Cheese and finish by covering the dish with the final can of Crescent dough.  Bake 30-35 minutes, making sure to check half way through.  If the top is browning too much cover it with a bit of foil and finish cooking.  Let the dish cool a few minutes before serving.
