My college roommate and I first ate these meaty sandwiches at the Iowa State Fair. After a little experimenting, we re-created the recipe. We ate the subs often because they were fast to fix between classes and didn't break our next-to-nothing grocery budget. They're priced right at 91¢ per serving. —Christi Ross Mill Creek, Oklahoma

I made this a few years ago with minor changes. I used a combination of Italian sausage and breakfast sausage and I used mozzarella and Colby jack cheese. Family loved it

These were a big hit! Everybody loved them and they were very easy to make. I made a few minor changes: I used hoagie buns, Italian sausage and a cheddar/mozzarella blend.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 16, 2010

I served this dish for for a snack and everyone really enjoyed it. I did use Jimmy Dean Pork Sausage, so it kinda had a breakfast flair to it, but it was delicious. Next time I will use Italian sausage to give it more of a sub taste that you would buy at a fair.
