  1. Salad Dressing — Ketchup is a necessary ingredient in many retro dressing recipes, including Thousand Island, French dressing, and my favorite, Catalina. The version at The Faux Martha is perfect for topping a taco salad.

  1. Cocktail Sauce — Did you know that you can conjure a cocktail sauce by combining just two ingredients? Include mustard and ketchup then serve alongside chilled shrimp or crab.
  2. Sweet and Sour Sauces — I’ve been thinking about this Sweet and Sour Skillet Stir-Fry ever since I made it a couple weeks ago. Ketchup gives the sauce body, sweetness, and tang, while fish sauce and lime juice add a Thai-inspired flavor. I think our jalapeño ketchup would be great in this, adding a little kick of spice to the mix.

  1. Sloppy Joes — You can’t go wrong with Sloppy Joes for dinner! Our version includes a good amount of chopped vegetables, making it a nutritious one-dish meal. To switch things up, substitute ground turkey or chicken.

  1. Pad Thai —It really is a worthy substitute for tamarind paste in a pinch.

  1. Meatloaf Glaze — My favorite part of the meatloaf is the sticky-sweet glaze on top! Use an offset spatula or spoon to spread ketchup on top of the meatloaf before baking, and it’ll thicken into a tasty glaze as it bakes.

  1. Homemade Barbecue Sauce — Many, many recipes for homemade barbecue sauce start with a bottle of ketchup as the base.

  1. Slow Cooker Cocktail Meatballs — If you’ve been tasked with bringing something to a potluck, a slow cooker full of meatballs is an easy crowd pleaser. Taste of Home’s recipe uses a cup each of ketchup, grape jelly, apple juice, and tomato sauce in a 5-quart slow cooker. Stir in a 4-pound package of frozen meatballs, let ‘er rip on low for 4 to 5 hours and you’re done.

  1. Franks and Beans — Jenny over at Dinner: A Love Story calls these her highbrow franks and beans. Made with Niman Ranch hot dogs and navy beans cooked from scratch, they look like a serious upgrade from the canned version!
