How to Make Hot Italian Hoagies

by Amy Hart

Toasted mini subs with a thick and zesty meat filling topped with hot melted mozzarella cheese. Very simple to make and delicious.


  • 1 Pounds Italian sausage
  • 1 Small white onion
  • 1 Small green pepper
  • 1 Handful pepperoni
  • 1 Jar spaghetti sauce
  • White mini sub buns
  • Mozzarella cheese finely shredded
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    Make sure your sausage is thawed and ready to go!

    Step 2

    Chop the onion into small pieces.

    Step 3

    Chop the green pepper, then brown the sausage with the chopped onion and chopped peppers. Drain excess oil.

    Step 4

    Slice the pepperoni into quarters, then add to the meat, onion, & pepper mixture.

    Step 5

    Add spaghetti sauce, but... (See next step)

    Step 6

    ...only add enough sauce to coat the meat and other ingredients. You don't want it to be too soupy or your bread will just be soggy.

    Step 7

    Open the mini subs, put on cookie sheet, add to 400 degree oven, and allow bread to toast. I took mine out after about 10 minutes. Will be slightly browned on edges.

    Step 8

    Spoon a generous helping of the meat mixture into each of the buns. Pile the shredded mozzarella on top of that.

    Step 9

    Put into the 400 degree oven and bake until cheese is melted and slightly browned. Took mine about 10 minutes.

    Step 10

    Serve with a pickle if that's your thing. Enjoy!
