Outstanding! A little rich with both the sauce and cheese, so will skip the cheese next time. I followed another reviewer's advice and increased the oven temperature to 400 degrees.
The sauce is killer! I grilled the sausages, peppers and onions and didn't add the cheese, but the sandwich was still great.
This sandwich shares first place with one other I made during RSC #16. The sauce was delicious, the italian sausage complemented the sweet peppers and swiss cheese perfectly (and I'm not even a fan of swiss cheese). Like another reviewer, I did have to increase the baking time of the veggies and sausage (mine were very thick) by double, for 15 minutes per side so I may grill or broil them, or possibly just increase to 400°F next time. I didn't have any buns or baguettes so I used what I had on hand, whole wheat English muffins, and it was still amazingly delicious. The leftovers even kept well and I got to enjoy it all again for lunch the next day. I'll have to modify it some to serve my family (I have a onion and peppers hater) but definitely a staple in my "kids weekend away" recipe binder :). Thanks so much for a delicious recipe. Made and thoroughly enjoyed for RSC #16. Best of luck!! =)
This was my favorite of all the recipes I tried! It was quick and easy. During the first 10 minutes of cooking I made and sauce and prepared the bread (I used bollilo). Then I turned the sausages and veggies and put the bread in the oven for the last 5 minutes of cooking. The cheese was perfectly melted, the bread was hot, and I was ready to assemble. I used hot sausage and the sriracha option. With the first bite, I was in sandwich heaven! Slightly messy, but oh, so tasty. Thanks for sharing. Made for RSC #16.
This recipe succeeds in combining a few diverse ingredients into 1 amazing sandwich! The sauce is terrific and I would use it for any sandwich! The only problem we had was trying to eat these without making a big mess because the French bread was too small to hold the sausage and everything else. This recipe is still a 5 star all the way - the ingredients are complimentary, the instructions are very clear, the cooking method of the peppers, onions and sausage is excellent and the end result is fantastic! Next time, I'll just buy buns! I had to sub spinach for the arugula, but that's the only change I made.
A nice robust sandwich! The sweet onions and peppers play nicely against the heat of the hot Italian sausages and hot chili sauce of the dressing. I made as written using whole wheat oblong crusty rolls, the hot Italian sausage option and 1 teaspoon on the hot chili sauce option. Did have to increase the bake time of the veggies and sausage as the recipe calls for 15 minutes and mine were no wear done so gave them yet another stir and cooked for 15 more minutes for a total of 30 minutes. Thanks so much for the post and good luck in the contest.
