The instructions for Manwich say to use ground beef or ground turkey, but it's also good with Boca "burger" crumbles.
It's even better if you add in chili powder and that wonderful frozen "seasoning" mix of diced green and red bell peppers, onions, and celery that I must always keep at least one full bag of in my freezer.
L'Ailee asked, "Isn't the idea of that Manwich sauce that everything you need is in the can, except for the meat?"
I smiled, smugly I'm sure, and asked, "Would you like me to try it that way?", just the way my mom did to me years ago when I wondered aloud whether all her "doctoring" was really necessary.
And just like I did years ago, she replied, "I trust your opinion" and scurried off to watch TV. :-)
