  2. Assemble appetizers by placing some chips and 1 frank in each roll. Insert 3 long wooden picks across each frank evenly. Divide onion mixture evenly on franks. Cut each frank between wooden picks with serrated knife to make 3 separate pieces. Serve as a snack or hors d'oeuvres.


Creamy Sloppy Joe Bites

1 long baguette, cut into ½ inch slices
Pam Olive oil non-stick spray
1/2 onion, chopped
3 garlic cloves, minced
2 Tblsp. Olive oil
1 lb. ground beef
1 15.5 oz can of Manwich Sloppy Joe Sauce
1/2 C. sour cream
1 tsp. salt
Smoked or Sharp cheddar cheese, grated

Directions: Place each bread slice on a cutting board and spray each side with Pam non-stick spray. Toast in toaster oven until golden brown and set aside.

  1. Heat a large skillet on medium-high heat and sauté onion and garlic with olive oil until softened, about 2-3 minutes. Bring heat to high and cook ground beef, breaking it into small pieces with a wooden spatula, until browned, about 5-6 minutes. Add Manwich sloppy joe sauce and cook for about 1 minute. Turn off the heat and mix in sour cream and salt.
  2. Assemble bites by adding a spoonful of the sloppy joe to each toast and topping it with some grated cheese. It's OK if the sloppy joe spills off each toast.
