Italian Sausage and Pepper Sliders

Italian Sausage and Pepper Sliders are meaty, cheesy and gooey. They are the ultimate comfort food for game day, get-togethers of just a good hearty meal!

Sliders are life to me and they are one of those meals that are just easy to whip up and put together that really takes little effort and is a quick and easy meal that you can get to the table fast. That’s what makes these Sausage and Pepper Sliders one of my absolute favorite meals to make!

Hey guys it’s Alli from Tornadough Alli! I’ve been having so much fun creating some drool-worthy recipes for Donna and Chad and today I’m bringing you these epic Italian Sausage and Pepper Sliders!

If you love ooey gooey meat and cheese then these sliders are a must make! Full of Italian sausage, red and green peppers, onions and a boat load of cheese, these sliders are the perfect meal for pretty much any time of the year!


  • Use an 11”x7” baking pan, they fit the amount of buns needed in the recipe absolutely perfect!
  • Use ground italian sausage for easy prep, you can use links but it takes more work removing the casing.
  • Put cheese on the bottom and top of your filling! It acts like glue and holds these meaty things together!
  • We love using Hawaiian slider buns, but any slider buns will work awesome. 



With love from our simple kitchen to yours.

Chicken Parmesan Sliders are sweet dinner rolls toasted with garlic butter and topped with Parmesan cheese.  Slices of pan fried chicken, marinara sauce and piles of mozzarella cheese on top this picture perfect slider.  It is heavenly and party ready!


Italian Sausage and Pepper Sliders
SERVES 12  |  PREP TIME 15 Min  |  COOK TIME 30 Min

12 slider buns, split (we love Hawaiian)
1 pound ground Italian sausage (hot, mild or sweet)
1 green pepper, diced
1 red pepper, diced
1 small onion, diced
1 cup marinara sauce
3 cups shredded mozzarella cheese, divided
1/4 cup butter, melted
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

Preheat oven to 350°F.

On stove saute together your Italian sausage, peppers and onions until no longer pink and vegetables are tender, remove from heat, drain and set aside.

Place the bottom half of your sliders in your baking pan and sprinkle with one cup of cheese.
Top with your sausage and pepper mixture.

Spread your marinara over the top and sprinkle with remaining cheese. Place top of your buns over your cheese.

Bake, uncovered, 20-25 minutes or until golden brown and heated through.

In small bowl mix together your melted butter, Italian seasoning and garlic powder.

Spread over the top of slider buns, reserving just a little bit to brush on after they are done baking.

  1. I am going to try this tonight. I am 1/2 Polish and 1/2 Italian. My husband is German. So, needless to say, we eat a lot of sausage. I'm always looking for new sausage recipes!
