Sausage & Peppers Pull-Apart Sliders
12 Dinner rolls (attached)
12 tbsp Olive oil
1 lb Sweet Italian sausage
1 Small yellow onion, diced
1 Small red bell pepper, diced
1 1/2 cups Shredded mozzarella
2-3 Hot cherry peppers, chopped
4 Provolone slices
2 tbsp Melted butter
1/2 tsp Italian seasoning
1/4 tsp Granulated garlic

Preheat the broiler to low. Slice the attached dinner rolls in half horizontally. Place both halves cut-side-up on a baking sheet and toast under the broiler until lightly browned, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove and preheat the oven to 375 F.

Heat the olive oil in a large cast iron skillet over medium-high heat. Brown the sausage meat, breaking it up into crumbles with a wooden spoon, about 5 minutes. Add the onion and pepper, and season with salt and pepper; cook until the vegetables soften and brown, about 5 minutes.

Line the bottom half of the toasted dinner rolls with the mozzarella cheese. Top with an even layer of chopped cherry peppers. Spread the sausage mixture on top. Cover with a layer of provolone and then the top half of the dinner rolls.

Mix the melted butter, Italian seasoning and granulated garlic in a small bowl. Brush on top of the rolls.

Return to the oven and bake until the bread is toasty and the cheese is fully melted, 10 to 12 minutes. If the tops of the buns are getting too dark, cover lightly with foil.
