Grilled Italian Sausage Sandwich



This simple Grilled Italian Sausage Sandwich is perfect for this Labor Day weekend. Homemade Sicilian sausage is the best but your favorite store bought sausage will be just fine,

What makes this sandwich great is the topping. I use roasted green and red sweet bell peppers mixed with sautéed onions, mushrooms, and tomatoes. Just season the mixture with fresh basil and dried oregano and serve the sausage on a nice garlic toasted dinner roll.

You can also replace the Grilled Italian Sausage with tender seasoned grilled chicken. It’s delicious using the same topping. Enjoy!
