Hermes Manwich Sloppy Joe Sandwich from Futurama

 In Recipes

Anyone who watches Futurama knows that Hermes Conrad and his son, Dwight, enjoy sloppy joe sandwiches. More specifically, Hermes loves his Manwich brand of sloppy joe sauce. In the show, it’s become a recurring joke since something always happens to his sloppy joe sandwich before he can eat it, and he ends up crying, “My Manwhich!”

Here at The Nifty Nerd, I think we can top Manwich and satisfy a Hermes-like appetite for sloppy joe using our own recipe. This family recipe is just as easy to make as Manwich, but tastes 10x times better!
