"These were so, so yummy. I used hot italian sausages and took the 1st reviewer's advice and baked them for a few minutes with mozarella and parmesan on top. Unfortunately I didn't have the right buns, so I just toasted really good hot dog buns. This recipe will be used a lot. Thank you."

"Haven't tried this one, but we do a similar version and saute sweet peppers (any color) and onions in butter to top our meat with inside the buns. Delicious! Recipe came from an Italian street vendor at a town festival."
