Do you ever add ketchup to recipes to improve the flavor?


I do. Many times making recipes with tomatoes the results may lack a little something and have a raw or unsavory flavor on the tongue and a few squirts of ketchup can round out the flavor to make something really good; such as chili, spaghetti, etc. Even home made soup sometimes. I admit you must be careful to not overdo but ketchup have a sweetness and roundness of flavor that can really make a difference. I also never make a meatloaf without a ketchup topping. How about you; do you sometimes us ketchup in seasoning?

    I know, I use to wrinkle my nose at it too until I tried it. It does have lots of great seasonings!

    I still add it if the tomato flavor of the dish am making is just not quite right; usually always fixes it.

    Yeah I never liked meatloaf til I started putting ketchup on it. I never add it if stuff is ok as is but it can really fix up spegetti that needs a little sweetness or chili that needs a little tang. I just make sure I just add a little at a time.
