First, I need to tell you that a close family member will soon be celebrating a birthday. Naturally, that gives me a great reason to host a party! I like to make recipes that are easy, yet tasty and delicious.
Since this party is a “come-and-go” party, friends will stop by at different times throughout the evening. Therefore I really want to incorporate the use of my crockpot. This recipe for easy Maid-Rites fits the bill!
To make Easy Maid-Rites to Feed a Crowd, start by cooking 2 1/2 pounds ground chuck. When the meat is done, drain off the excess grease and place the meat into a 4-quart crockpot. Next, add two 15.5 ounce cans of MANWICH Original Sloppy Joe Sauce.
(*Is Manwich gluten-free? As of the writing of this post, the Rep. I spoke to said the company is working on labeling their gluten-free products. At this time, however, they can not officially state that it is gluten-free. The company currently lists any allergens in their labeling, e.g., dairy, wheat, soy, peanuts, etc…)
Next, add 4 -5 dashes of Tone’s Liquid Smoke. (*I personally called the company and they assured me that this product is gluten-free).
Now add chopped red, yellow, and orange baby bell peppers, onion, salt, pepper, a touch of brown sugar, and dry mustard.
Mix all of the ingredients together and turn the crockpot on low for 2 1/2 hours; stirring occasionally.
When guests arrive, the Maid-Rites will be ready and waiting for them. Yay! I love a great crockpot recipe!
These delicious and easy-to-make sandwiches are wonderful for parties and family gatherings.
- 2 1/2 pounds ground chuck, cooked and drained
- 2 (15.5-ounce cans each) MANWICH Original Sloppy Joe Sauce
- 4 -5 dashes of Tone's Liquid Smoke
- 1 cup red, yellow, and/or orange bell peppers, chopped
- 1/2 cup onion
- 2 teaspoons salt
- 2 teaspoons pepper
- 3 tablespoons brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon dry mustard
I mixed all of the ingredients together and place them in a crockpot. Cook on low for 2 1/2 hours; stirring occasionally. Serve on buns.
This recipe will easily serve 12 – 14 people using regular size hamburger buns, (or gluten-free buns). I usually serve Maid-Rites with the usual condiments, a variety of chips, green beans, Fruity Lemonade, and a Red Velvet White Chocolate Trifle for dessert.
*Side note: Anna’s husband is on a gluten-free diet. He loves eating maid-rites with tortilla chips in place of a gluten-free bun!
I love hosting parties and spending time with good friends.
