Cheesy Italian Sausage and Pepper Sandwiches

My kids, particularly the teen boys, love it when there are ready-to-eat, meaty type things in the freezer. They love the Chicken and Bacon Subs as well as the Not Your Convenience Store’s Burritos from my freezer cookbook. I wanted to expand our repertoire, so I created another meaty sandwich to add to the freezer stash.

Feel free to alter the contents to suit the tastes of your household. I love the kick that pepper jack gives to this sandwich, but feel free to change the cheese, add more or less vegetables, or even make some meatless cheese and vegetables sandwiches if your people aren’t as carnivorous as mine.

One of the best parts about these sandwiches is that you can reheat them in the oven or in the slow cooker. We tested this out a few different ways, finding that it’s best if the foil wrapped rolls are cooked on low for two to three hours, turned halfway through cooking. I’ve put them in the slow cooker frozen and not worried because everything in the sandwich has already been fully cooked, you’re just heating them up.

These Italian Sausage and Pepper Sandwiches are quick and easy to make. Assemble a bulk batch and store them in the freezer for quick lunches, dinners, and snacks. I love using the small personal-size ciabatta rolls that I find at Costco.

  1. YUM! This recipe looks right up my alley. I am a really big fan of the peppers and onions and I would probably add some mushrooms too! Great tip on using the water to prevent the sausage from burning! I’ve never heard of that so I’m definitely trying it out next time! I love your blog, thanks for posting!

    I just made these and they look yummy! I was wondering, do you thaw the sandwiches before cooking them?

  3. Jennifer says

    These are going to be part of dinner tonight, and I’m definitely adding mushrooms to it. Yum!
