    • Ketchup, Reimagined

      Often set off to the side to amp up burgers and bratwurst, ketchup deserves a starring role in your next dinner recipe. Here are 10 reasons to grab the ketchup bottle.

    • #1: Sweeten Up Ketchup

      Push already-sweet ketchup to the sugary edge with a carton of fresh strawberries. A few spices and some hot pepper sauce make it the rewarding barbecue sauce that's smothered on these sandwiches.

    • #2: Combine Ketchup with Condiments

      Ketchup and hot dogs may have met before, but never like this! Try these tangy-crunchy-sweet stir-ins to take bottled ketchup to fresh heights.

    • #3: Stir Ketchup into Soup

      It's not a cheeseburger without the ketchup! This undeniably delicious twist on the all-American classic uses both ketchup and ketchup paste to create the soup's creamy base. Top it with all your go-to burger essentials.

    • #4: Mix Ketchup and Coffee

      Coffee with ketchup? You betcha! These Southwestern steak tacos call for a strong cup of joe and a few squirts of store-bought ketchup. A sprinkling of chili powder gives the sauce a kick that's spicy enough for a cowboy.

    • #5: Use Ketchup in Mop Sauce

      Mop sauce -- the baste of barbecue -- is the essence of this toasty tenderloin sandwich. Our version ditches boring barbecue sauce and uses ketchup instead. Add Worcestershire and a dash of sugar to make it equal parts sweet and savory.

    • #6: Spread Ketchup on Turkey Sandwiches

      Ketchup is often regaled to only-with-beef status, but we defy convention by trying it with turkey. A ketchup-relish mayo struts its stuff in this turkey sandwich featuring Havarti cheese and shredded cabbage.

    • #7: Slather Ketchup on Kabobs

      Ketchup dabbles in Asian cuisine, too! Here, it mingles with soy sauce, crunchy peanuts, and Chinese five-spice powder. Sprinkle the mouthwatering pork kabobs with a little lime juice to heighten the flavors.

    • #8: Bring Ketchup to Italy

      Ciao, marinara. Ketchup has arrived! We introduce these finger-lickin' Italian sandwiches to America's favorite condiment by simmering seasoned sausage, mushrooms, and olives in a bubbly ketchup sauce.

      #9: Mix Ketchup with Hoisin

      Hoisin -- a sweet-and-salty glaze popular in Chinese cooking -- joins snappy ketchup in this so-simple barbecue dinner. Serve the glazed chicken thighs on crumbles of crispy bacon and tender veggies.

      #5: Pair Ketchup with Fish

      Ketchup makes a splash in seafood -- this time as a totally tangy spread for mini fish sandwiches. Just blend ketchup, mayo, and Cajun seasoning, then slather it on a toasty cocktail roll. Like your ketchup hot? Use bottled pepper sauce to kick it up a notch.
