Mondays are always so hectic around here. Two kids come home from school grumpy and tired, there’s homework to be done and a house to straighten up… The last thing on my mind is making some elaborate dinner that no one is going to eat anyway.
That’s why I’ve replaced our “What’s for supper tonight?” with Manwich Monday (and occasionally Sloppy Joe Saturday, depending on how busy the weekend is.)
Maybe it’s a sneaky mom trick, but when I make Sloppy Joes, I know they take two hands to eat. That means no one is going to be checking their phones or playing with their tablets once supper starts. Manwich is the best way to go for getting everyone to the table for a simple family supper.
I used to love when my mom would make Sloppy Joes for supper. It wasn’t anything special that she did to them, just a plain ol’ hamburger bun with saucy ground beef. She always used Manwich though, and the sweet and tangy sauce made them the perfect supper, especially when she paired them with tater tots!
That’s why I want to share my family’s new favorite recipe – Sloppy Joe Totchos! They’re great on their own as a snack or as a side to Sloppy Joes.
Sloppy Joe Totchos Recipe
