This post brought to you by Manwich. All opinions are 100% mine.
There are so many nights when I'm just exhausted after a long day at work. The last thing I want to do is figure out a recipe to make and stop at the store to inevitably get the ONE thing I don't have! That's why I always have one friend in the cupboard for a quick meal fix!
My husband LOVES Manwich! I think it's one of those things that's really reminds him of growing up. His mom didn't have a lot of money and she had four mouths to feed - Manwich is an affordable dinner solution! All you need is a can opener and a pound of ground beef! (Their Manwich TV Ads even say so!)
Our niece was in town and wanted to get in the mix and help out (I never turn down help in the kitchen!). She made dinner all on her own. It's super simple - brown the ground beef, add Manwich - DONE!
There you have it - quick and simple dinner that my husband won't complain about. He likes simple - throw some fries in the oven, add a quick salad and you've got a healthy meal in no time that won't hurt the wallet!
Besides making Manwich the standard way - they have a ton of Manwich Recipes on their site - so you can get a little creative!
We used the Bold Manwich in a dip recipe. It started like regular Manwich...
But then I added cream cheese and it became a great dip!
They have the recipe for the Party Sausage Dip on their site - but I'll share my version below.
There are also multiple varieties - Larry likes the Original while I like the Thick & Chunky! Yum!
So next time you're struggling to find a quick, inexpensive dinner - think about Manwich!
Food Hussy's Manwich Party Dip
1 lb. ground beef
1/2 onion, diced
1 can Manwich Bold Sloppy Joe Sauce
6 oz cream cheese
1. Cook hamburger & onion in a skillet until hamburger is done (no pink).
2. Add Sloppy Joe Sauce and cream cheese. Reduce heat to low; simmer 5 minutes until cheese melts, stirring occasionally.
3. Serve with Tortilla Chips
The original recipe calls for sausage but Larry isn't a fan. This was a great zingy dip and was a great alternative to the normal heavy cheese dip. I hear there is some sort of big game coming up - and the dip is a nice orange color - like a certain Mile High Team!! #GoBroncos
