This is the first time I’ve had two of the almost-same dishes on my go-to list. I’ve made my original sandwiches for years. They’re crazy good, gooey, and messy – all criteria for good eating at game-time. My Italian sausage sandwiches version 2.0 are very similar to my original version, but they use my Italian meat sauce recipe instead.

Like I said, these sandwiches are messy, so you know they are good. The more napkins you need, the better it is, I always say. The meat sauce is fantastic. I could eat it all day on anything. I make an extra big batch of the sauce and freeze it in portion-sized containers so I can easily defrost some for a quick sandwich. It’s also great over hamburger buns for an Italian Sloppy Joe.

I highly recommend that you shred or grate your own cheese at home. Don’t buy the pre-shredded or pre-grated stuff. It has stuff added to it to keep it from sticking together. That ‘stuff’ affects how the cheese melts. Shred it yourself and use the good stuff.

Also try my other version of Italian sausage sandwiches, all fantastic: version 1.0 and version 3.0. My slow cooker Creole sausage sandwiches are insanely good too.
