Easy Recipes: Sloppy Joe Potatoes

Manwich to the Rescue

Hello, Delivered Ones! Between taxes and car repairs, editing and book reviews, I didn't get a lot done with paid surveys this week, but I did play around with the oven a bit. So, instead of the usual Sunday wrap-up, this week I'm sharing with you a simple and tasty recipe.
Many of us love sloppy Joes. But what if you have a family member who doesn't care for buns or bread? If they like potatoes, it's simple!
You will need one potato per person and one pound of ground meat per two to three people. I tend to use ground turkey because it's less greasy than ground beef, but any kind of ground meat will work in this recipe.
Put the ground meat in your slow cooker with one can of Manwich per pound of ground meat and set the slow cooker to High.
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Wash one large potato per person and wrap each potato in a foil jacket.
Every oven is different, but I find that about an hour and 20 minutes is necessary to properly bake a large potato.
While the potatoes bake, the Manwich mixture is cooking in the slow cooker. On the High setting, the Manwich should be done at the same time as the potatoes.
When the potatoes are done, simply cut them in half and top with the Manwich mixture. Serve with a salad or a cup of soup, a corn cobette, or just as is.
If you prefer a vegetarian option, stir some favorite vegetables such as broccoli, cauliflower, or baby corn into the Manwich sauce. You might also consider Tofu or Seitan. 
The restaurant I deliver for used to have a pulled Jackfruit sandwich. I found the Jackfruit to be a good substitute for pulled pork, but we didn't sell enough of the sandwiches and they were taken off the menu. I have never cooked Jackfruit myself, but if you have experience with this option, you might want to give it a try.
Bon Appetit!
