Garlic Butter Italian Sausage Sandwiches

Cooking Italian sausages right in your slow cooker equals the most tender, flavorful and simple supper! Plus, since there is basically no prep work involved (besides slicing the bell peppers and onions), you simply add the minimal ingredients to your pot, cover and be about your day! You can welcome yourself home to the delightful smell of a gourmet dinner and it’s also great for a crowd!

*serves about 10 people. If wanting something other than sandwiches, or for leftovers, you can serve over al dente noodles or polenta.

The Starting Lineup
2 packages Italian sausage links (appx 10 links, sweet, mild or spicy)
24oz jarred Italian diced tomatoes (I love Racconto organic San Marzano’s)
3 Bell peppers, cut into strips (I used red, orange and green)
1 large onion, sliced
1/2 cup pepperoncini’s
1 tsp each salt, pepper and garlic
10 slices provolone or mozzarella cheese
10 hoagie rolls
1 container garlic butter (often found in deli or bakery section)
To your slow cooker: add in the sausage links and top with the sliced bell peppers, onions, pepperoncini’s and the seasonings. Pour the jarred Italian diced tomatoes over top and set to low for 6-7 hours or high for 4-5.

On a baking sheet, split the hoagie rolls and generously slather on the garlic butter to each side. Place under broiler for 1-2 minutes until just golden brown. Fill each roll with a sausage and your desired amount of sauce and veggies. Top with the cheese and place under your broiler for another 1-2 minutes. Serve immediately. Enjoy!
