Fannie Farkle's Hot Italian Sausage Sandwiches

"Funny how a certain scent can just send you reeling. Remember the smell of sausage cooking at a fair? I remember this scent walking in Gatlinberg, TN during vacations. There is a little place called Fannie Farkles who always has it on the grill...enticing me. And now I've stolen their name...will probably be in copyright prison by the time you read this."

  4. This is one terrific, hassle-free sandwich. We'll be doing this one regularly with hot turkey Italian sausage. I did the vegetables on the stovetop and it all worked terrifically on a grilled whole grain ciabatta.


I have two awesome boys 7 and 6 and a wonderful husband of 15 years. I have been cooking since the age of 10 when I became a latch-key kid with my 6 year old little sis. I cooked Friday nights when my single mom closed the bank and my favorite recipes were broiled fish, oven BBQ chicken and tuna salad! Cooking was fun then and it is even better now cooking with my boys or anyone else I can employ in the kitchen with me!!
