With back to school time here I’m busy putting together a stack of recipes for Easy Weeknight Meals. Once school starts we are always busy and having easy recipes on hand is a must. My family loves sloppy joes and they couldn’t be easier to make, but I wanted a fresh take on a family favorite so I got in the kitchen and started playing with ingredients. The end result was a fantastic recipe for sloppy joe wonton cups that satisfy the tastebuds and leave you without the traditional messy hands that sloppy joes are known to leave behind. The crisp from the wonton cups adds a great layer of texture to the sloppy joes. As an added bonus they are just as quick and easy to make as traditional sloppy joes! These are a great weeknight meal or party food.
First brown one pound lean ground beef on the stove and then drain the excess fat. Then add 2/3 a can of Manwich sloppy joe sauce. I used the Thick & Chunky variety because I didn’t want the filling to be too saucy or the wonton cups would get soggy. Cook over medium heat until sauce is mixed well and thickened up.
While you are making your sloppy joes on the stove, get your wonton cups in the oven. Brush each wonton wrapper with vegetable oil and press into a muffin pan. Cook at 350 degrees for 6-10 minutes until crisp.
Once your wonton cups are done remove from the oven and fill with sloppy joe mixture.
Then top with cheese and put back in the oven for 1-2 minutes until cheese is melted.
Sprinkle with green onions to complete them!
