The holidays are such a wonderful time of year. Spending time with friends and family, giving to others, and just plain old goodness. I love it!

Dinner time is the perfect time to sit down, relax, and talk. But, sometimes it can get tough to make a nice dinner when you’re so busy running around. You may just want to grab fast food instead of cooking. Can you make a delicious and easy meal at home instead? Yes you can! #YesYouCan

Don’t Stress! ConAgra has great products that are perfect for busy holiday cooking. These Sloppy Joe Pizza Sliders are an easy and delicious dinner.

While I was at Walmart I picked up some PAM, MANWICH, Hunt’s Sauce, and other ingredients. Just add some veggies on the side and you’ve got an easy to make and complete meal!

Tip: I love PAM nonstick spray. It makes cooking and baking so much easier. You don’t have to worry about things sticking.

Directions:

Heat pan over medium heat and spray pan with PAM nonstick spray.

Cook the ground sausage until no longer pink. *Tip: If it comes out too “chunky” and you want smaller crumbles, use a metal potato masher while cooking. It breaks up the meat perfectly.

Drain to get rid of excess oil and put back in the pan.

Add salt, pepper, garlic powder and basil. Mix until combined.

Add MANWICH and Hunt’s Sauce. Stir and lower heat and simmer for 5 minutes. All done!

Assemble your sliders:

Get a slider bun and add Sloppy Joe Mixture.

You can either make a plate of these, or put everything on the table and let everyone create their own. Since some family members don’t like mushrooms and others don’t like black olives, that’s what we did. And, it was fun! This recipe is very versatile. You can use your favorite toppings!
