Hot Sausage Sandwich Recipe

 This is a very popular sandwich in my part of the universe.  Almost every bar and small restaurant offers their version.  This is mine.

 We have so many wonderful sausage choices. There are homemade sausages for sale all over our area.  The Italian hot sausage I use is not too spicy.  If you don't like spice, you can use a mild Italian sausage instead.

 In a bit of olive oil, saute some onions, peppers and diced garlic.  Don't overcook it. It should still have a bit of crunch to it.   Add salt and pepper.

 In another pan, cook your sausage in a bit more oil.

 Let it get nice and brown and cooked through. Set it aside.

 Add the veggies to the oil in the sausage pan and stir it around to coat.

 You can use any kind of roll you like but they are really good if you make your own.

 Slice the sausage into 1/2 inch disks.  This makes the sandwich easier to eat than if you use a whole link.

 When your buns are ready, split them almost in half.

 Load on some sausage, onions and peppers.

You can melt sliced mozzarella or provolone on top but I prefer them plain.  During warm months, you can cook the pepper mixture inside and grill the sausages outside for added flavor.

This recipe of yours is similar to my recipe for sausages. Mine is patterned after a Pittsbugh Pa version I had years ago. DELICIOUS, for sure.

Looks yummy!

Swedish sausages doesn't work for this, too low quality to be honest. Thankfully we now days can find sausages from all overb the world in even the smallest grocery stores :-)

This is a must try!

Have a great day!

I've tried doing this sandwich recipe before. I like how the flavor of the sausage, peppers, and onions combine once you take a bite. You can't help but to take another one because of its scrumptious taste. Oh man, I'd love to make one now.

Hmm... Melted mozzarella on top sounds really tempting. :D The sausage filling is very generous, which makes cooking your own food supremely satisfying. You have the privilege of adding and subtracting ingredients for it to fit your taste perfectly. AND you can have all the helpings you want! Boulder Sausage
