Happy National Ketchup Day! I love a little ketchup on my eggs, grilled cheese, macaroni and cheese and a whole pile of other foods. It’s my favorite condiment. But have you ever considered incorporating ketchup into some delicious meals as an ingredient instead of a topping? It adds great flavor to many recipes and is basically undetectable in a lot of dishes. So pull out your ketchup and get ready to make an amazing supper for this Monday night.

 

1. The Best Cocktail Sauce Ever
