Cooking with Dr. Pepper

Sounds good, like a sloppy joe. Some people use Dr Pepper as a glaze for ham.
Enjoy your site.

I love this site too. I have strife linked and will be adding this one as well. I have a food/cooking site but it does not link to velma for reasons of a 13 and 15 year old.
Oddly, their favorite slam is Jam Hands.... hmmm, now I guess I'd better make sure I know what it means :).

Would diet Dr. Pepper work? What flavor exactly does the Dr. Pepper add?

Exactly! What may be called a "spoonburger" in one region is called a sloppy joe here. They are actually quite good. Just as good, if not better than the pre-packaged Manwich stuff.

I've never heard pf people glazing hams with Dr. Pepper, but it sounds good! There are all kind of interesting recipes in this book, all using Dr. Pepper. I'll print more later.

I'm glad you are enjoying my site! Thanks for taking the time to comment. :)

Yep! And there's more where that came from. I still need to print one from my 7UP cook booklet!

Thanks, Velma! I've linked to you as well. Glad you like my site(s). :)

You know, funny you should ask that. Though the cook booklet does offer a Diet Dr. Pepper alternative to some of the recipes, the Spoonburgers was not one of them. Personally, I don't think it would work simply because the sugar in the reg. Dr. Pepper is what needs to carmelize in order to act as a thickener. A thickening agent is pretty much what the Dr. Pepper adds.

Hope this helps! :D
