      This was amazingly good! I only had regular pork sausage patties (I can't wait to try it with the Italian sausge!), but I followed the directions exactly and it was absolutely excellent. Everyone (ages 12 to 56) who had one raved about it! I will definately make these again and again! Thanks for the great, easy recipe!

      These were so tasty and quick. The cheese makes them so much better than the usual pepper and sausage sandwich.

      EXCELLENT. Absolutely amazing tastes. I used 2 half-pound packages of sweet/mild Italian sausage, and 1 half-pound package of the hot. I'm a big fan of the "traditional" Italian sausage and peppers sandwich, and this is just an improvement on a good thing. I really enjoyed the addition of the cheese and the toasted bread. The only challenge I encountered was because I used a narrow loaf of bread, so I had to creatively put together the sandwich, and I also made larger patties, so flipping the sandwich in the pan was a bit tricky. NO LEFTOVERS around here!
