Serves 8 | Prep Time | Cook Time


2 pounds lean ground beef
3/4 cup chopped green bell pepper
1 1/2 tablespoons onion powder
2 teaspoons garlic powder
2 (16-ounce) cans Manwich Sloppy Joe sauce
8 low-calorie hamburger buns, cut in half

Spray large nonstick skillet with cooking spray; add ground beef, bell pepper, onion powder and garlic powder and cook, stirring, over medium heat until beef is cooked through.

Add sauce; cook, stirring frequently, until meat mixture is heated through.

Scoop out centers of tops and bottoms of hamburger buns. Divide sloppy Joe mixture among bun bottoms; replace tops.

Wrap individual sandwiches in heavy-duty foil.

Preheat oven to 350F. Bake sandwiches 15 to 20 minutes.

Sandwiches can be wrapped and stored in freezer bags before baking; bake directly from freezer at 350F for 30 to 40 minutes.

Tips: Complete your Baked-in-Buns Sloppy Joe meal with frozen corn on the cob (microwaved in minutes) and chunky-style applesauce.
