These Italian Sausage Sandwich Sliders are a game changer. Layered with flavor they are a crowd pleaser perfect for parties or a light lunch.
These Italian Sausage Sandwich Sliders are easy to prepare and even easier to eat. Featuring pork sausage and Hawaiian rolls, they are sure to impress.
It’s time sliders got the gourmet treatment. Flavorful pork sausage patties are paired with zippy shallots, sweet roasted red peppers, and Dijon mustard and piled high on pillow-soft, buttery King’s Hawaiian Rolls.
Throw out the old, boring slider rolls. Hawaiian slider rolls are key! King’s Hawaiian Rolls are addictive because of their fluffy texture and their subtle sweetness not to mention sturdy enough to pack with lots of fillings.
If these Italian Sausage Sandwich Sliders seem a little labor intensive, there are a few shortcuts you can take to cut down on time in the kitchen.
If you do not want to make your own patties, you can buy pre-made sausage links. My preference is either mild or hot Italian sausage. Before cooking them, remove the casings and work to shape them into patties.
For the roasted red peppers, you can easily buy bottled. I planned on making these on the grill, but a ridiculously windy thunderstorm thwarted that plan. I opted to cook them in a well-seasoned cast iron skillet instead.
However you do it, these little Italian Sausage Sandwich Sliders are worth a little extra TLC.
