EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

Just as for pizza, the meat in these sandwiches can be interchanged according to your family's personal preferences. Use all bulk Italian sausage (be sure to cook until no longer pink), or use half ground beef and half Italian sausage.

To make this kid-friendly recipe all the more appealing, serve with a take-along treat such as pudding snacks or chewy fruit snack rolls.
