I took this to a "tailgate party" at work. It received great reviews! It reminded me of the Italian sausage sandwiches I used to get at cookouts as a kid in the eastern part of the country. This is definitely not a sandwich for kids - unless they enjoy spice - but the adults sure loved it and asked me to bring it to work again :) Thanks ratherbeswimmin!

I LOVE this recipe! Fantastic, and perfect to make for a casual get together or quick dinner. It's got some kick to it, but tastes oh so good. In making it (three times now), I omit the fennel seeds (I don't have any on hand), and add one can of tomato paste to thicken it up just a bit. And for those that really like the heat, top it with hot pepper cheese, wow! I also serve it with seasoned waffle fries to scoop up the bits that fall out of the sandwich, yum! Thank you so much for this recipe.
