Really excellent flavor! I did increase the proportions of sauce ingredients because it was not as juicy as I liked. Several dashes of garlic powder (after tasting as is) made it perfect! Read More

These didn't taste bad but definitely not the "maid-rites" I was expecting. Maid-rites aren't supposed to be saucey as I know them. If these were called "Sloppy Joe's" I would give them a much better rating. Read More

Immediate Hit! Little resemblence to real Maid-Rites but a fantastic sandwich. Even better the next day. Must use mini buns to make 16 sandwiches. Read More

This is quick and very good. I halved the recipe since I only had a pound of hamburger and followed the recipe exactly. I got just a small taste as they were eaten up very quickly! Very sloppy joe-like but different from the Manwich I typically use for a quick meal. Thanks Kendra:) UPDATE I made these again tonight and once again I only had one pound of hamburger. However I forgot to halve the rest of the ingredients and they still turned out great! Since they were extra sloppy we used the potato chips I had made to go with it as scoops. This leads me to believe this would be great over mashed potatoes or wide noodles for a nice change from buns:) Read More

These sandwiches were good! Also very quick and easy and made with ingredients that I have on hand... I used bison meat and it worked well. In the instructions "simmer" seemed a bit misleading to me. In my version there was very little liquid. So I just turned the burner down low for a few minutes after adding the ingredients. (So I made them even more quickly than I'd expected.) Read More

These were a nice change of pace from sloppy joes but I don't know that anyone in my house would ever request them since my son didn't like them and my husband and daughter didn't say anything. I liked that the ingredients are something I always have on hand but I had to almost double the sauce ingredients. When I got to the simmering part the meat tasted a little bland and was so void of liquid it wouldn't hold together. Afraid of it burning while it sat there for 20 minutes I threw in some more of each ingredient and added some garlic powder as well. I would make this again if I needed something to throw together but I don't find myself serving it to company or adding it to my cooking repertoire on a regular basis. Read More

I made these with one pound of ground chicken. I made the whole batch of sauce because I wasn't paying attention but I think that was a good mistake to make. This is great on English muffins. Read More
