Hot Italian Patties Recipe

Publisher Photo
I've been making these spicy and satisfying sandwiches for more than a dozen years. On occasion, I substitute country sausage for the Italian sausage and they taste just as good. Served with a zesty sauce for dipping, they're my family's favorite. -Brenda Jackson, Garden City, Kansas

"Great sandwich. I loved the dipping sauce. Just a little bit of a bite to it. I used frozen Italian sausage patties and it was very quick to prepare."
