I don't buy many convenience foods, but every once in a while, I find something like Manwich comes to the "quick snack for the grandkids" rescue. The down side is that it can be expensive when feeding a crowd, so I was very happy to find this great "clone" recipe.
TIP: When feeding a crowd, I usually serve these sandwiches, "slider style", on small dinner rolls.
8 ounces tomato sauce
1 cup ketchup
1 tablespoon dried onion flakes
1 tablespoon finely diced green pepper
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon prepared mustard
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon dried minced garlic
1/4 teaspoon celery seed
Mix everything together and add to one pound of (browned and well drained) ground beef. Simmer for 10 minutes then spoon onto buns and serve.
