  1. This is quick and very good. I halved the recipe since I only had a pound of hamburger and followed the recipe exactly. I got just a small taste as they were eaten up very quickly! Very sloppy joe-like but different from the Manwich I typically use for a quick meal. Thanks Kendra:) UPDATE I - Read more ...
  2. Very easy and tasty. Made it without any changes and everyone loved it.
  3. I made these with one pound of ground chicken. I made the whole batch of sauce because I wasn't paying attention but I think that was a good mistake to make. This is great on English muffins.
  4. These were a nice change of pace from sloppy joes but I don't know that anyone in my house would ever request them since my son didn't like them and my husband and daughter didn't say anything.

  5. These didn't taste bad but definitely not the "maid-rites" I was expecting. Maid-rites aren't supposed to be saucey as I know them. If these were called "Sloppy Joe's" I would give them a much better rating.

  8. Very good recipe - easy and delicious. I added a little chili powder and a dash of cayenne to spice it up and honey dijon insead of regular mustard but easy easy easy to do any number of variations or good as is!
  9. Immediate Hit! Little resemblence to real Maid-Rites but a fantastic sandwich. Even better the next day. Must use mini buns to make 16 sandwiches.
