This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Manwich. All opinions are 100% mine.
Growing up we had a lot of quick and simple meals. Hamburgers, pizza, hot dogs, but one of my favorites was sloppy joes. The tangy flavor of Manwich gave our meals a little more pizzazz.
These are the types of experiences I want for my kids. I want quick and easy meals so we can spend more quality time together, plus smiles and laughter during the meal is always a bonus.
Unfortunately my kids aren’t bun eaters. This idea baffles me as well. Hot dogs without buns, hamburgers without buns, and it’s not the easiest to enjoy a sloppy joe without the bun.
Manwich still allows me to give the kids a quick and easy meal, even without the bun. All I need to do to adapt it to my family is put it in a skillet and turn it into something a bit different, though I still make regular Manwich sloppy joe sandwiches whenever I get the chance to entertain others.
Now that I’m back from the store, it’s time to decide which variety of Manwich we’re going to use for dinner tonight! Thick & Chunky, Bold, or Original. My personal favorite is the tangy styles of Original Manwich, so I think that’s what we’ll work with. We’re going to make tonight a Manwich night, although you can make any night a Manwich night!
Manwich Macaroni Goulash is my quick and easy recipe that both pleases my family and shares the tangy traditions with them that I had growing up. You can use any of these three Manwich flavors to make it your own. Have fun trying them all!
Manwich Macaroni Goulash
- 1 pound ground burger, browned and drained
- 1 15oz can Original Manwich
- 2 cups uncooked macaroni pasta
- 2 cups water
- 1 cup shredded cheese (your favorite variety)
- Your favorite toppings (optional) – suggested list of topping ideas listed below recipe
Combine browned hamburger, Manwich, macaroni, and water in a skillet.
Bring to a boil, then cover and reduce heat to medium low stirring occasionally to prevent pasta from sticking to bottom. Cook until macaroni is tender and sauce has thickened.
Top with cheese, replace cover, and cook on low 2 to 3 minutes until cheese is melted.
Serve with topping selections.
Enjoy with your family for a fun meal with lots of smiles and laughter.
