It’s Monday already again! Why does the weekend always go by so fast? I hope you had a wonderful weekend and are feeling fresh and ready to start a new week. For this week’s Meatless Monday recipe, we are celebrating Manwich Monday with these adorable vegetarian sloppy joe sliders using Hunt’s Manwich Sloppy Joe Sauce in the Bold flavor. I love sliders because they are very versatile. They make a great appetizer, after-school snack or dinner, and are a lot of fun for the whole family to enjoy.
Go ahead and eat as many as you want…they are, after all, mini!
You may be wondering what Manwich Monday is…Manwich Monday is a great way to kick off the week with tasty, easy, family-friendly meals. I have also tried the Manwich Original and Thick & Chunky sloppy joe flavors, and Bold is definitely my favorite. It is a hearty, meatless, sweet and tangy sauce with a great smokey flavor to it, and goes perfectly in this vegetarian sloppy joe recipe. All of the sauces make a perfect ingredient to a quick, easy meal – which is what we all need on a busy Monday!
Instead of ground beef or turkey, the “meat” of these sloppy joes are black beans. I added some chopped red bell pepper and onion to give it even more flavor and heartiness. Nobody will leave the table hungry after eating these vegetarian sloppy joe sliders! Caution: you will need both hands to eat a Manwich – meaning no phones or ipads at the table! 😉 Let’s bring back family time with more fun recipes like this one.

What a perfect recipe for tailgating!! And they are so cute!! Love this!
I haven’t had a Manwich in years! And I think I’d enjoy your fabulous veggie version even more than the original 🙂
I haven’t tried the original, but I LOVED the veggie version!
These are adorable! and such a great idea. Iv’e been trying to eat vegetarian a few nights a week but it’s hard to get the kids to eat any of it. I think my son would love these!
I totally know what you mean! Good luck 🙂
First off, hooray for anything mini! I think foods that can fit in the palm of your hand are instantly 1000x more enjoyable to eat 😉 . And I love how you have black beans in this to add substance! A lot of vegetarian sloppy joes can lack substance, but this sounds amazing!
The black beans were perfect in this! And I agree, hooray for anything mini indeed!
