Grinder, hoagie, sub, hero, zepplin, wedge…call ’em what you want. I call ’em delicious! This is one of Hubby’s favorite meals and it is so easy to make. Until I get my sausage stuffer attachment for the KitchenAid Mixer, I use store-bought…but if you can make fresh…that would be even better! I always serve our grinders with baked beans…not sure why…but it’s sure delicious!
1 White Onion
1 Red Pepper
1 Green Pepper
1lb Sweet Italian Sausage (we use the Perry’s brand)
Hot sauce for topping
Place sausage links in a pan with 1/4C water. Cover and let them cook for 10 minutes. Turn the sausages over, re-cover and continue cooking another 6 minutes. Remove cover and allow the remaining water to evaporate. Continue cooking the sausages (turning occasionally) until they are browned and have reached an internal temperature of 160 degrees.
Meanwhile, in another pan, combine sliced onion, green pepper and red pepper. Cook over medium-high heat for about 15 minutes – until everything is soft and slightly browned.
Blot the cooked sausages on a paper towel and start making your grinder. As you can see from the picture, Hubby likes red peppers and I like green. That’s the beauty of this recipe – everyone gets what they like!
Note: Save your leftover peppers/onions for a killer potato hash or egg scramble the next morning!
