Here's another quick and easy recipe from ConAgra Foods which uses a can of Manwich Sloppy Joe sauce to make a moist and tangy meatloaf. The sauce is not only baked into the loaf but topped with it as well. I baked this in my 10 inch oven with 10 coals in a ring around the bottom and 18 on the lid, after 20 minutes I removed a few of the coals from the middle and let it finish cooking with one ring around the lid. Add chunks of carrots or quartered potatoes to finish off this one pot, zesty dinner.
1 can (15.5 oz each) Manwich Original Sloppy Joe Sauce, divided
1 cup fresh bread crumbs (1 cup equals about 2 slices)
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1-1/2 pounds ground round beef
Lightly oil or spray a 10 or 12 inch dutch oven.
Set aside 3/4 cup Sloppy Joe sauce.
Mix remaining Sloppy Joe sauce, egg, bread crumbs, onion, salt and pepper in large bowl until well blended.
Add beef; mix until just combined.
Mound mixture in bottom of dutch oven and shape into loaf, pressing firmly together and flattening top.
Spoon reserved Sloppy Joe sauce over top of meat mixture.
Surround with quartered potatoes if desired.
Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes. Let stand 10 minutes before slicing.
