These are a classic Rhode Island treat. So delicious in a soft sub-roll with a little salt on top. My toddler loves to dip chips in it too. This can also be cooked in a slow cooker.

I searched for a Dynamites recipe to surprise my husband who is from Rhode Island. When I found this one it looked easy enough for an amateur like me to try. It was - easy and fantastic! Thanks! Read More

Some things I wanted to mention: Firstly there is no salt in the recipe so you'll probably need to add some if you use salt in your cooking. I do but the older people in my family don't want it in there. Also I say 6 servings because you can't stop eating these things they're so good. But really it makes about 8 medium sized sandwiches (or 6 really big ones!) Read More

I personally like celery in my dynamites so I add that and season my hamburger with salt pepper and garlic powder. Other than that this is a great recipe. Made it several times serve dynamites on a hoagie bun with a side of potato or pasta salad and chips. Good stuff Read More

These were ok but needed more seasoning to make them 5 star. The kids liked them a lot but the adults thought they needed some more spice to them. Not sure I will make them again since we have a sloppy jo recipe that we love and find more flavorful. Read More

3 1 17... http://allrecipes.com/recipe/186860/dynamites/... Hadn't heard of Dynamites till now. 'Reminds me of sloppy joe's or "Manwhich" (but much better tasting). I added a half t salt. Upping the red pepper would've been fine. It isn't spicy just tastes good. Should I have drained the meat? I was feelin' reckless & the recipe didn't say I should. Well I did what I could with that orange oil. I will drain next time or mostly drain. Thanks for the recipe! A couple days later I pressed boy 19 for a review & got at thumbs-up. Fair enough.;D Read More
