Creating weeknight meals for my family is always a challenge. Especially on Mondays when I am tired from the weekend and from starting the work week. My kids are usually tired on Mondays and don’t want to wait a while for dinner to cook. That is why I usually try to cook something that is both easier and that the whole family will love.
Manwich Monday is a great way to start your week, with a tasty, easy-to-make family meal. Manwich is a hearty sauce with a sweet and tangy taste that is so versatile you can use it to make many meals. The Kid-Stopping Power of Manwich makes meals a messy-licious treat to be enjoyed with both hands – giving moms and dads an easy, quality ingredient to bring the family’s attention back to mealtime and away from everyday distractions.
I really like the fact that Manwich can be used to make traditional sloppy joes or I can use it to create other easy meals as well. Manwich comes in three great flavors: Manwich Original, Manwich Bold and Manwich Thick & Chunky. We like all three flavors and will usually switch it up based on what we are feeling like that day.
I really love how versatile Manwich can be, we have used it to make sandwiches and to add to pasta. I am not the biggest fan of ground beef, so we usually make it with ground turkey, but I really like that you can use whatever ground meat you want.
We have been trying to eat a little better, especially during the week. We have been having trouble getting our kids to eat vegetables, so I thought it would be great to combine the Manwich with zucchini and ground turkey. Plus the kids love the Manwich sauce with the vegetables. I stuffed the Manwich covered ground beef in zucchini to make delicious Sloppy Joe Zucchini Boats.
These Sloppy Joe Zucchini Boats are a great dinner that combines the great taste of sloppy joes with zucchini to make a healthier meal that the whole family will love. To make this meal I hollowed out zucchini halves and stuffed them with a sloppy joe mixture. I used the Manwich Original Sauce combined with ground turkey to make my sloppy joes. I also added some zucchini to the mixture as well. The zucchini boats are then topped with mozzarella cheese.
My kids really like sloppy joes and were happy that they had one of their favorites. They also get really messy with the sauce. I loved this meal because it tasted great but also there was zucchini added to the sloppy joes. My kids wouldn’t eat the zucchini itself but didn’t even realize that the sloppy joes also contained zucchini. This is a great meal the whole family will love and is a great way to make sure to gather around the dinner table and enjoy a family meal, even if it is a Monday night.
