Who doesn’t love a sausage sandwich, like the ones you get at the fair. Now you can have them whenever you want, not just once a year when the fair comes to town. The sausage sandwiches are to die for.

Here’s how I do it.

To start off with I chose the sweet Italian sausage, but of course you could use the spicy one as well. In a small saute pan I put 1/4 cup of low sodium chicken broth and bring it to a boil then add in my sausages. I pricked my sausages on both sides with a fork to help the cooking process. Put the lid on and let go on a slow boil until the sausages are cooked through. Then take the sausages out, set them aside for a minutes and then I start on the veggies.

In this bowl I have 1 each of red green and yellow bell peppers. Also 1 large sweet onion all sliced up. Then I have 3 cloves of garlic finely minced.

In a larger saute pan I have a drizzle of olive oil that I add 1 teaspoon of crushed red pepper flakes too. We like a little heat to our veggies, not too much. I toss in all the veggies and let them start to sweat on med high heat. I add in 1 tablespoon of Kosher salt, and 1 teaspoon of black pepper. After about 5-7 minutes the veggies have started to really soften and get some color on them, that’s when I toss in 1 tablespoon of tomato paste and the minced garlic. I stir all this around so the tomato paste cooks out and the veggies are coated with that flavor, plus the garlic has had time to soften. For me, I like for the veggies to still have a slight crunch to them and not cooked all the way to the soft stage. That’s just a personal preference. At this point I take the veggies off the heat and start the next stage for the sausages. The grilling. This gives a nice smokiness and those great grill marks to the sausages.

Get your grill pan screaming hot and place the sausages on there, turning them every few minutes until they are where you want them to be. Now the bread. I chose a large baguette that I cut so they would match the size of the sausage links. I spread some butter on them and placed them on the grill, using a grill press to make sure the toasted evenly.2014-11-25 11.53.33

Now you of course could add some cheese to these sandwiches, that would be great, For me just a sprinkling of Parmesan cheese is just fine. That’s all there is to it. Now all you do is put these bad boys together and enjoy.
