Classic Sausage Pepper and Onion Sub Sandwich. – Bill Fox
Each roll of sausage from Peter’s Deli is about 87 cm long, to make 5 sandwiches each sausage
should be about 17 cm. Before baking poke a few holes in each sausage. You can use the 4
pack precut sausages, any style you like. I like the Italian.
2 large onions, 4 large bell peppers (any color), probably more than enough but save any
leftover for pasta the next day
Spices to taste, salt, pepper, oregano (about 1 t). Be careful with salt as it is likely in the sausage.
Do a taste test at end and adjust as necessary.
Bake sausage 20 minutes at 400 degrees in oven (in baking dish)
In the meantime, slice onions and peppers in strips, about 1/3 inch wide, or as you like.
Dry off sausage to remove any moisture. Heat a stainless or non-stick pan to medium-low and
once hot add 2 tablespoons of olive oil (or more). Add the sausage and cook until the links are
well browned on all sides (about 10-15 minutes total). Remove, cover, and keep warm in oven
Then add the peppers and onions (in small batches and with more oil if necessary). Cook for a
few minutes coating well with the olive oil and sausage drippings. Add 3 ounces of water to the
pan and cover. (or with foil if no lid)
Remove the lid after about 10 minutes. Season with salt, pepper, and oregano. Continue cooking
to evaporate any excess water. When the water evaporates and the peppers and onions are soft,
add in the sausage links
You can go to your local bakery for rolls, or buy from Pan del Dia in Puertas del Sol. It is across
and right in front of the courts where they do dancercize every morning, up from Gran Sol on the
left (google maps). They have fresh 8” rolls or frozen in packs of 10. If frozen, take out the
bread that you are going to use, let it rest for 5 minutes, then the oven has to be preheated to a
temperature of 350 F degrees and you have to bake for 25-28 minutes! Until you see that the
bread is golden! (25 min. seems the sweet spot). Perfect for these.
