    LaraKN's Note:

    Mike loved this. I read numerous recipes online, then did it my way. I hate ketchup & wanted to avoid using it, I think the balsamic adds the vinegar that you miss from the ketchup with a little extra sweetness & flair. I have an extensive spice rack & pantry, so substitute if needed.

      Loved this!! Perfect balance of sweet & savory. An upscale version of Manwich without the icky processed food ingredients. Stayed true to the recipe except used 2T of regular balsamic as I didn't have the flavored one.
