Grilled Hot Italian Sausage Sandwich

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Mimi in Maine

My kids have always wanted these at a cookout. They are the regular-size hot Italian sausage, split before cooking, with peppers and onions on top in a homemade burger roll. Easy and so delicious. You put two sausages on a roll and then the topping.

No reviews??? I can't believe it! With a good squirt of ketchup or mustard, these are awesome right off the grill!
