In a large pan over medium high heat, brown the ground beef until cooked; drain off the fat and discard.  Add Sloppy Joe Sauce Mixture, frozen peas, and hash browns.  Stir together to combine.  Let the Sloppy Joe Sauce just come to a boil and turn the heat down to medium-low.  Let simmer until the peas and hash browns have softened up.

Sloppy Joe Mixture


Split apart one of the biscuit rounds into two circles.  Take one of the dough circles and, using your fingers, stretch the edges of the dough and keep rotating the circle while your stretching the edges until it reaches 3 inches across in diameter.  Place the stretched dough on the baking sheet.

Scoop a heaping teaspoonful of the prepared meat mixture and place in the center of the dough circle.  Sprinkle some shredded cheese on top of the meat mixture.  Fold the circle into a half-moon shape enclosing the filling.  Pinch the edges of the dough together to seal.  If you want to get fancy you can use a fork to press down the edges into a crimped border.  Repeat this process until all the biscuit dough is used up.
