Step 1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.

Using a knife, slice open the casing on each sweet Italian sausage (1/2 lb or about 2-3 links) and discard. (Or if you’d like to skip this step you can purchase loose sausage – this is what we did). Place the uncased sausage meat and Schweid & Sons burger patties (1/2 lb of either Prime Burger or The One Percenter) into a large mixing bowl. Mix to combine.

Mince 4 jarred cherry peppers, reserving about ¼ cup of the pickling liquid.

Tip: place finished sandwich under the broiler just until cheese is melty and golden.  We recommend adding a little butter or pam to your Martin’s Potato Rolls to help give them a golden brown sheen.
