Ingredients

2 torpedo buns, sliced in half and hollow out the center of each piece

Olive oil

2 tsp dried oregano (divided)

12 slices provolone cheese (fold each slice in half)

1x package of Massimo’s Mild Italian ground sausage meat, divided into 4 portions

Optional: Fresh parsley to make homemade Chimichurri / Herby Sauce

Instructions

  1. Place the 4 torpedo bun halves on a baking sheet and hollow out the center of each piece.
  2. Drizzle each piece with olive oil and sprinkle each with ½ tsp dried oregano.
  3. Layer 3 slices of provolone cheese (folded in half) into each hollowed out torpedo bun, overlapping as you layer in the middle of th ebun.
  4. Next, use a ¼ of the Massimo’s ground sausage per bun and use your hands to spread it out over the entire cheese layer, covering most of the bun. Press around the edges to try to seal the sausage so the cheese layer doesn’t leak out when cooking.
  5. Oil a grill pan or frying pan over medium heat, once warm, cook sausage side down for about 15 minutes or until the sausage is cooked through / reaches 165F internal temperature and then sausage side up to toast the bun.
  6. To serve as an appetizer, slice each bun half into 4 pieces and drizzle with homemade herby sauce if desired or a marinara sauce.

TIPS

To make and serve as a sandwich, make half the recipe and keep the top of the buns to use to complete each sandwich. Once you’ve cooked the two bottom halves, top with herby sauce or your favourite sandwich spread and your choices of greens or other toppings. Then finish the sandwich with the top of the buns that you saved
