So you made your lovely French bread…today I want to share something that we make with that wonderful bread! These sandwiches are incredibly simple and flavorful This is something you can prep ahead of time and make even on a weekday. We used a spicy sausage (habanero pork sausage from our local Whole Foods) which was a nice complement to the sweet peppers. An addition of some tomato adds some depth; they basically disintegrate and create a wonderful sauce. It’s a really great dish for fall; hearty without being heavy. Yum! What do you think??
Sausage Sandwiches with Peppers and Onions
3 Bell Peppers (Assorted Colors)
1 Large Onion
1 Pound pork sausage
1 T Worcestershire Sauce
½ C Red Wine
1 T Olive oil
Salt and Pepper
Parmesan cheese (for garnish)
Slice the peppers and onions lengthwise, keeping the onions separate.
Slice the sausages on the diagonal using a good knife (putting the sausages in the freezer for a half an hour before you slice them will help.)
Preheat the oven to 350° and place the bread in the oven whole. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add the sausage to the pan and brown on both sides, about 4 minutes.
Move the sausage to the outside of the pan, then add the onions to the center of the pan.
Allow the onions to soften, about 2 minutes, then add the peppers and toss the ingredients together.
Allow to cook about 1-2 minutes before adding the tomatoes and the liquid ingredients. Season with salt and pepper.
Cook to reduce the sauce by half.
Slice the bread in half lengthwise and cut into sandwich sized pieces. Serve the sausage and pepper mixture on the open bread making sure to spoon some sauce on top. Garnish with some grated parmesan cheese.
PS. Don’t worry if there are leftovers, we will show you a way to use them coming up!!
