Italian Sausage Sammies

This slightly grown up take on the classic meatball sub is a tribute to my hubs, Bill. With a good deal of Italian blood running through his veins and a serious love of all Italian meats, he always roots for the Italian in the sausage race.     As a bonus, this Italian Sausage Sammie recipe is super easy for weeknights and it’s pizza-y flavors makes it kid-friendly too!

Italian Sausage Sandwich

Italian Sausage Sandwiches
1 lb italian sausage (bulk or removed from casings)
1 ball of fresh mozzarella cheese
1-2 C spaghetti sauce (jarred or your own)
fresh basil leaves
4 buns

Form italian sausage into four patties to fit the shape of your bun. On the grill or in a skillet, cook sausage until it is cooked through and forming a nice golden outer crust, approximately 5-6 minutes per side. Meanwhile, heat spaghetti sauce in a small pan or the microwave.

Slice the mozzarella thinly and place several slices on the bottom of the bun. Microwave for 45 seconds or until cheese begins to melt. Place sausage patty and several basil leaves on top. Drizzle with sauce and complete with other bun. Serve with extra sauce for dipping and a Caesar salad.

Note: Italian sausage usually comes in “hot” and “mild”. If you’re like me and enjoy a little more zip to your sandwich, buy the hot!
