Meaty Sloppy Joe Pockets

“It’s easy to turn sloppy joes into hearty hot pocket snacks. I make the filling ahead and use refrigerated biscuits. I time them so they’re done baking just before kickoff.” —Shelly Flye, Albion, Maine

Instructions
  1. In a large skillet, cook beef, onion, celery and carrot over medium heat 6-8 minutes or until beef is no longer pink and vegetables are tender, breaking up beef into crumbles; drain.
  2. Stir in tomato sauce, ketchup, brown sugar, vinegar, Worcestershire sauce and tomato paste. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, 10-15 minutes or until thickened, stirring occasionally. Cool completely.
  3. Preheat oven to 350°. On a lightly floured surface, pat or roll each biscuit into a 6-in. circle. Spoon scant 1/3 cup beef mixture over half of each circle to within 1/2 in. of edge. If desired, sprinkle with cheese. Fold dough over filling; press edge with a fork to seal.
  4. Place on an ungreased baking sheet. Cut three slits in top of each. Bake 18-20 minutes or until golden brown.
