Total Time:
22 min

12 min

5 servings

  • Sausage patties:
  • 2 pounds ground pork
  • 3 tablespoons kosher salt
  • 2 tablespoons cracked black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons smoked paprika
  • 2 tablespoons fennel seeds
  • 2 teaspoons cayenne pepper, or to taste
  • 2 teaspoons red pepper flakes, or to taste
  • 2 tablespoons garlic, minced
  • Peppers and onions:
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 red bell peppers, seeded and sliced in rings
  • 2 green bell peppers, seeded and sliced in rings
  • 1 sweet onion, sliced in rings
  • 2 tablespoons salt, or to taste
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons cracked black pepper, or to taste
  • 16 ounces fresh mozzarella, thinly sliced
  • 5 kaiser rolls, split in 1/2

Preheat the grill to 350 degrees F.

In a large bowl mix together the pork and all of the spices. Mix well until evenly distributed. Shape the mixture into 5 equal patties. Grill the patties on each side until cooked to desired doneness, about 4 minutes on each side.

In a large bowl, add olive oil, peppers, onions, salt and pepper, and toss together. Coat the mozzarella in the oil mixture, and transfer the slices to a large plate.

Using a grate on top of the grill, arrange the onions and sliced peppers. Close the grill and allow to cook for 1 to 2 minutes on each side.

Put the sliced peppers, onions and mozzarella on top of each meat patty. Close the grill and cook until the cheese melts, about 1 minute.

Tuck a sausage patty into each roll and arrange on a serving platter.

Cook's Note: After assembling each sandwich, gently squeeze the patty together so the bread absorbs some of the juice.
