Sausage, Peppers & Smoked Mozzarella Panini

Sausage, Peppers & Smoked Mozzarella Panini

It’s not that I don’t like football – it’s just that I have a hard time getting really into it. My mom always ribs me for routinely mixing up offense and defense when I was the JV cheerleading captain in high school. Details! I do enjoy the excitement of the game, though. They use some pretty snazzy on-screen graphics and the beer commercials are usually entertaining, I can appreciate that. But the best part about football season, for me, is football food.

Sausage, Peppers & Smoked Mozzarella Panini are the perfect big-flavor panini to enjoy while watching the big game, inspired by classic Italian sausage and peppers. Hot Italian sausage links are layered in with zesty bell peppers and onions, blanketed in smoked mozzarella cheese, and grilled nice and toasty on Italian bread. Serve marinara sauce on the side for dipping and enjoy!

It’s true — this is serious football food. And even those of us who don’t understand the game (yes, there are others out there), can enjoy it!

Oooh these look delicious for a football game (perhaps the National Championship?) I love sausage and peppers together– and you can’t go wrong with melted cheese. Delightful!

Oh man, it is lunch time over in the UK at the moment and this is making me drool lol.

Anything with sausage and cheese goes down a treat in my book!

Paninis are some of the things that I really enjoy preparing at any time, because they always taste very well. I do love to cook and to experiment with new recipes, so I am going to try this one as soon as possible. The pictures make it look quite delicious.
