Sloppy Joe Baskets

Sloppy Joe Baskets - Fun Food for Easter

We’re taking a little break from all of our holiday desserts to bring you a dinner idea.  Crazy, right?  Not so much if you know me.  I just love making fun foods for my kids and with Easter coming up, I thought these Sloppy Joe Baskets would be fun to serve for dinner.

They look like little Easter baskets, right?  Kind of?

They are so easy to make.  The thing you want to remember – divide each biscuit in half to cut the thickness.  Otherwise they will be a thick cup of dough with no filling.

  5. Add a scoop of sloppy joe mix to each cup.
  6. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 12 - 15 minutes, or until golden brown.
  7. Cut your carrot into a thin strip.

    This is an awesome idea and the kids would totally love these. I will have to make these for sure and I love the carrot for the handle. Thanks for sharing.

  2. What a super idea for Easter time, spring time well really anytime the littles would like it. Paired with fruit like you have it makes it a balanced, fun meal. I never thought of things like this when my kids were small – good thing I have grandchildren!
