Gizmo Sandwich

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by LiisaN

Had to attempt to duplicate a hot selling MN State Fair vendor sandwich! This is close -- hope you enjoy the slight switch from a sloppy joe/meatball and/or loosemeat hoagie!

I'm giving this four stars before I even make it because I live in MN and also love the Gizmo at the State Fair. I would also say that banana pepper rings are a great addition!!!
