Grilled Italian Sausage Sandwich



This simple Grilled Italian Sausage Sandwich is perfect for a weekend bbq. 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.

Don't forget a little giardiniera. Enjoy!
