Sloppy Joe Stuffed Pumpkins Recipe

A Simple and Delicious Kid Friendly Recipe for Fall

These sloppy joe stuffed pumpkins are so much fun to make with the kids. They make a simple dinner that's ready in no time!

As Fall arrives, I get in the mood for meals my mom use to serve – warm, hearty, tasty that when you come in for dinner time the entire house was filled with the aroma of a great meal.  Now that I have kids of my own I want them to enjoy those same experiences and memories – great, mouthwatering aroma, everyone at the table talking and sharing the news of their day, and a meal that not only taste great but makes memories and fills your heart with love.

I appreciate how quick, easy and parent friendly Manwich is–not to mention, the Original still has that same great taste I loved as a child.  And they’ve now kicked it up a notch with the BOLD flavoring and Thick & Chunky!

Little Man always wants to be helping in the kitchen and these Sloppy Joe Stuffed Pumpkins are the perfect kid-friendly recipe for him to help out with.

Around here we love Fall with all the pumpkins, beautiful reds, golds and orange leaves being outside and enjoying the crispness of the air.  This time of year it’s imperative that we have a super simple meal that we can whip together for dinner.  

Today it is Fall that inspired this twist on a family favorite, these Sloppy Joe Stuffed Pumpkins are so much fun!  I used a simple pumpkin muffin tin to make this dinner kid friendly and fun.   While I was cooking the meat, I had Little Man use his kitchen safety knife to cut each canned biscuit in half and place the half into the pumpkin muffin cups. 

We mixed together the cooked ground beef and Manwich sauce to create the filling.  Then Little Man carefully dropped a spoonful inside each biscuit.  He folded the biscuits shut and we baked them at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes….or until the biscuits were a nice golden brown.

Halloween is my favourite holiday and I believe I remember seeing silicone pumpkin muffin tins at Michael's and trying to convince my husband to get them! lol Now I can do it! lol I am always trying to find fun recipes we can do as a family, we call our daughters "Little Chef" and let them be the sous chefs! =) I think this would be delicious with cheese added! Yummy! Thank you for sharing, I am going to try to go grab that tin now! lol

What a yummy and cute idea! It looks like it could be adjusted for other fillings too. I wonder what else would be good in these?

I've been thinking about what other fillings I can do....I might try a hearty chili or chicken and broccoli next time. :)
