There are many loyal customers of the famous New York street food sandwich—sausage, peppers, and melted cheese on a fresh hoagie bread. What are your options, though, if you do not reside in or around New York City? The beloved classic's strong taste is captured in this slow-cooker variation. Even better, it's really easy to whip up. By the way, this dish is also delicious on its own, without the bread!
Severe sandwich connoisseurs will like this sandwich. Spoon some cheesy, toasted hoagie bread on top of a slow-cooked mixture of sweet Italian sausage, chopped onions, and two varieties of peppers. Make sure you have enough napkins and food on hand.

Slow-Cooked Peppers with Sausage

Kitchen Stove Items
One tablespoon of extra-virgin olive oil.
1 and a half pounds of uncooked sweet Italian sausage
One can of fire-roasted tomatoes, measuring 28 ounces
One 8-oz can of tomato sauce
1 sliced onion
one sliced red bell pepper
1 thinly sliced green bell pepper
This dish calls for sixteen pieces of cheese, preferably provolone or mozzarella.
8 rounds of hoagies
What to do
1. Heat the olive oil in a big pan over medium heat. Toss in the sausage and brown it well, tossing often to break up the meat, which should take approximately 5 minutes.
2. Put the meat in the slow cooker. Coat the onions, peppers, tomatoes, and tomato sauce together.
3. Simmer, covered, for 7 hours on low heat.
4. For serving, divide the buns in half and top each with two slices of cheese. Broil them for a few minutes to toast them and melt the cheese. Quickly serve by spooning a little of the heated sausage mixture into each bun.
