Easy Maid-Rites 5

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? 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.

Easy Maid-Rites 8This 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. We laugh until we cry and we eat until we are stuffed.  Stories are told, and we all agree we should find another reason to have another party soon!
