Freezer Meal Recipes: Homemade Manwich Sloppy Joes
Copycat Manwich Sloppy Joe Recipe
You can often get canned Manwich Sloppy Joe sauce for cheap with sales and coupons. But you can make it at home for cheap too! Homemade is better for you, still easy and quick to make, and it freezes well too!
This is not a sweet sloppy joe sauce, but it is not really spicy either. It is full of tangy flavor! We all really like it in my family. Apparently, a lot of other people like it too. Hence, you can buy Manwich at nearly every grocery store and it has been around for a while.
You can ditch the can though, mix up your own tangy sloppy joe sauce with simple ingredients, and still have dinner on the table in less than 20 minutes. I love an easy dinner! This sloppy joe sauce only needs to simmer for 10 minutes before serving.
I usually use frozen chopped green peppers in this recipe since I don’t have fresh green peppers around regularly. Most of the other ingredients are easy to keep in the pantry, like the dried seasonings and tomato sauce. Even the buns can be kept on hand in the freezer for a little while without drying out too much.
To make this TERRAfit-friendly, use a low-sugar ketchup and serve with a whole grain bun or eat it without a bun!
We love sloppy joes because they are easy to make and our families eat them up. All of the sloppy joe fillings freeze well too! So, here are some more of the sloppy joe recipes that we have posted over the years…
