I’ve had this recipe saved for a while. It has finally cooled off here in The ‘Ham, and I thought this sounded like the perfect meal for a crisp Fall night. I assembled the casserole the night before and baked it when I got home from work. I was a little worried about how it was going to taste because is uses a can of Manwich Sloppy Joe sauce. I don’t ever recall liking Manwich sauce, but I was willing to give it a try. I am so glad I did. This was really, really delicious! It smelled so good that even Fluffy was begging for a bite (it was driving her nuts). I served this with some Butter Dips (I added some cheese to the dough) and green beans. Chicken Legs is having leftovers for lunch today.
