Jimmy Dean Philly Sausage Grinder

Yield 4 grinders or 16 appetizers


  • 1 package Regular Flavor Jimmy Dean Pork Sausage
  • 1 cup thinly sliced onions
  • 1 cup thinly sliced green pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 cup prepared spaghetti sauce
  • 2 (12-inch) Italian rolls, cut in half lengthwise
  • 4 ounces mozzarella cheese, sliced
  • Crushed red pepper (optional)

How to Make It

  1. Cook sausage, onions, peppers and oregano in a large skillet over medium-high heat, stirring frequently, until meat is thoroughly cooked and no longer pink. Stir in garlic and spaghetti sauce, reduce heat to low; simmer five minutes. Preheat oven to 375° F. Hollow out each roll with a knife, leaving a 1/2-inch shell. Fill rolls with sausage mixture. Cover with mozzarella slices. Bake directly on oven rack for 20 minutes. Serve whole, or for appetizers cut into 1 1/2-inch slices; sprinkle with crushed red pepper, if desired.
