Heat oil in a large skillet over, medium-high heat and add the onions and spread around the pan. Toss in the peppers, sprinkle with a little salt, pepper and garlic powder and stir to combine. Stir in a little tomato paste and cook all until the onions and peppers are tender. Remove from the heat.
Remove sausage meat from casings and blend together in a bowl. Form into 4 patties. Either grill on your outside grill or broil inside in your oven. When sausage burgers are ready, top each with cheese and continue to cook just until the cheese starts to melt.
