Description

Manwich in a pastry shell! My mom made these for us while growing up, and I make them now for my family when we are in need of a tasty, quick, filling meal!

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds Hamburger Meat
  • 1 package Velveeta
  • 2 cans Crescent Rolls
  • 2 cans Manwich Mix Or Your Favorite Sloppy Joe Mix

Preparation

This was a recipe my mother found in a magazine over 20 years ago. Originally, it called for making each its own individual filled crescent roll. As a young working mother of three, she thought that was too much work and made changes to it to make it one large “pie.”

I make this every time my brother is around. It is one of his faves!

Brown the hamburger meat (you can use turkey if you like).

Add the Manwich mix or make your favorite Sloppy Joe filling.

Spray a cookie sheet with nonstick spray.

Open one can of crescent rolls and instead of unrolling them and breaking them apart at the perforations, you unroll and push the perforations together to form one large rectangle.

Put this into the oven at the temperature on the crescent roll package, for about 5 minutes or until no longer doughy. The Sloppy Joe mixture will be sitting on this and you don’t want it to be soggy.

The next part seems a little strange. You’re going to do the same thing for the other can of crescent rolls on another cookie sheet (or plastic wrap, but be sure to spray it too). This is so that putting the top part of the “pie” on is easier. You can pop this one in the fridge to make it a little more solid while you put together your pie innards.

After you remove your bottom crust from the oven you want to spoon your sloppy jo mixture down the center of your pie, leaving enough room on the edges for crimping the bottom and the top crust once you’re done.

Slice the Velveeta based on the amount of cheesiness desired and lay it across the top of your Sloppy Joe mixture.

Remove the top crust from the fridge and invert it on top of your pie. Then crimp the edges together with your fingers or a fork.

Some seams may separate a bit, but the cheesy meaty goodness oozing out looks so yummy!

Bake at the temperature on the can of crescent rolls until the top is golden brown.

Slice and serve.

This is usually served in our house with a side salad and some field peas.

Wow, can I tell you what a hit this was with my kids? I did find that I only used about 1 pound of the sloppy joe mixture. I saved the rest for another meal. I liked the trick of making a crust out of the crescent rolls.
