Keep the Napkins Close by With This One!

This recipe has received great feedback over at Pass the Sushi. Here’s what lovely readers have said about it:


GAH! This recipe just made my day. Love me some sausage and peppers! And the fact I can make these bad boys in a crockpot, brilliant!

If it’s made in a slow cooker, I’m all over it! This looks amazing, and I’m betting 2.0 would do a jump for joy if I were to make it for him. It’s kinda like a sloppy joe, but more elegant because of the fire roasted tomatoes. Fire roasted anything takes things to the next level…




  • 1 tbs olive oil
  • 1 lbs bulk ground sweet sausage
  • 1/2 lbs ground beef
  • 2 15oz cans fire roasted tomatoes
  • 1 8oz can tomato sauce
  • 1 small onion, sliced
  • 1 red pepper, sliced
  • 1 green pepper, sliced
  • sliced provolone or mozzarella
  • Fresh rolls



Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat. Brown the sausage and ground beef, breaking into bite sized portions as it cooks. Transfer to a slow cooker. Stir in the roasted tomatoes, tomato sauce, onion, and peppers into the slow cooker with the sausage mixture. Cook on low for 5-7 hours.

Toast rolls with a slice of cheese on each until golden brown and cheese is starting to melt. Pile sausage and pepper mixture onto rolls.




Quick Tip: Instead of Mozzarella, choose your favorite cheese!

Thanks to Pass the Sushi for this scrumptious sandwich everyone will love!
