What’s better than having a few beers and a tasty sloppy joe? This recipe is hearty, filling, and can be made before the tailgate. Make the sloppy joe meat before your leave for the tailgate, put it in Tupperware, and assemble them there.
In a sauté pan add olive oil, sweet Italian sausage, garlic cloves, and salt and pepper to taste. Cook meat for 15 minutes or until meat is fully browned. Once the meat has browned add in tomato sauce — let the meat simmer on low for 20 minutes. Add basil leaves and serve sloppy joe with Ball Park buns.
