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


  1. Preheat the grill to 350 degrees F.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. Tuck a sausage patty into each roll and arrange on a serving platter.
  7. Cook's Note: After assembling each sandwich, gently squeeze the patty together so the bread absorbs some of the juice.
