For this recipe I wanted something sweet that brought a nice heat also and I already knew I wanted to include pineapple and smoked sausage. It took a few experiments before finally developing this one. I do add caramelized onions on my kids' sandwiches because I've noticed that it seems to lessen the heat some, but I like a strong heat so this recipe does not include the caramelized onions. If you want less heat I suggest adding them. This is a very easy recipe that I've gotten lots of compliments on. Enjoy!
