Looking to use up some ground beef this week I tried to rack my brain for a recipe we hadn’t had in awhile. When I was younger we used to eat Manwiches often and I loved them and everyone seemed to enjoy them. Though nothing is quicker that popping open a lid I decided I would try to make them from scratch. I had all of the ingredients on hand so in hindsight it was cheaper too than using the canned version. A real favorite of the family is “Spoonburgers” but we’ve had them a lot lately hence the switch up to the sloppy joes, but I promise you will be seeing a recipe for my family’s “Spoonburgers” soon!
