Who doesn't love this combination...Italian sausage and grilled peppers. We have made them by the truckload for our friends and our kids' friends and there are never any leftovers.
The smells of the sausage and peppers cooking is intoxicating. Personally I add grilled onions to mine and Dave adds marinara sauce. One of the keys for me is the right cheese and there is no doubt that Land O' Lakes White American is the best by far.
When you cut open your hoagie roll dig out some of the bread and create a bowl-like space so the sausage and peppers sink into the bread and then the whole filling won't fall out of the roll.
4 tbl olive oil split
1 lb italian sausage (mild or hot)
1 red pepper thinly sliced
1 green pepper thinly sliced
1 medium onion thinly sliced (optional)
1/2 lb thinly sliced Land O'Lakes white american cheese
1 jar of your favorite marinara or homemade
salt and pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 375 degrees
Heat 2 tbl olive oil in a large skillet over medium - high heat and saute the sausage until almost cooked through. In another skillet heat remaining oil and add peppers and onions. Season the vegetables with pinches of salt and pepper. Cook over medium heat, do not burn.
When the sausage is almost cooked through, transfer it to a cutting board and slice into thin coins. Return sausage to the same pan and add enough marinara sauce to coat all the sausage and cook until done.
In the meantime, slice your baguettes and trim some of the bread out of them. Put two slices of cheese into the baguette. Add some of the sausage mixture and some of the vegetable mixture. Place another piece of cheese on top and bake in the oven until cheese starts to melt.
My mouth is watering......and to think I am having salad tonight...aauugghhh....
