I used to love Hunt's "Manwich" BBQ ground beef sandwiches as a teenager. Decades later, I recently bought a can and made a batch, according to Hunt's recipe, to revisit the taste/treat memory and found it to be shockingly and cloyingly sweet. One bite and the rest went into the trash. Unsalvageable.
Several months later I was thinking about Manwiches again and thought to myself "let me make my own adult version". The solution was simple. All I did was make my favorite tomato based ground meat spaghetti sauce from scratch, add a few scant dashes of Bull's Eye mesquite BBQ sauce, and put it on cheap, toasted Van De Kamp's english muffins rather than hamburger buns. Delicious!
