Huey's Italian Sausage Dog

READY IN: 25mins




  • Preheat the grill.
  • Blanch the sausages in simmering water until just firm to the touch; drain well.
  • Heat 1 tablespoon of oil from the capsicums in a large pan and gently sauté the garlic and onion until they have softened but not browned.
  • Add the olives, the capsicums, the tomato cooking sauce and the seasonings. Mix well and cook until thickish. Then stir in 8 torn basil leaves.
  • While the sauce is cooking, pan fry the sausages in a thin layer of oil in another pan until they are golden brown.
  • Then cut the two baguettes into three pieces about the length of the sausages; make cuts in the centre (but NOT right through) and insert a sausage topped with the sauce inside each piece of the baguette.
  • Place on the sausage-filled baguettes on a baking tray, top with cheeses and grill until golden and bubbling.
  • Serve with a garnish of basil.
