I can’t believe I am saying this, but this is the 200th recipe I have posted on The Petite Beet! It feels like just the other day that I decided to start my little blog. Thanks to everyone who has followed me on my cooking journey the past 4 years! If I had known this was my 200th recipe, I would have posted something a little more exciting than a sandwich, but after noticing the mass amounts of peppers and onions I have been hoarding the past two weeks, I decided I needed to do something about it – and what better way to solve that problem then to stuff them all into a roll the same size of my entire body, right?
Also, a big thank you to Nextdoorganics, the wonderful CSA here in NYC where I have been getting my weekly produce from each week. At least 150 of these recipes have been made using their items. You guys are the best!!
Ingredients: (serves 2, or 1 very hungry person)
2 sausages (I used some cheddar pork Bratwurst from Whole Foods)
1 large white onion, cut into slices
1 large green bell pepper, cut into slices
1 large red bell pepper, cut into slices
1 medium fennel bulb, but into slices
Salt and pepper
Provolone cheese slices
1 large Italian sandwich roll
Start by cooking up the sausage in a large pan, turning until all sides start to brown. Remove and set aside. In the same pan, saute the onion and fennel in olive oil for about 5 minutes over medium heat. Add the peppers, salt and pepper to taste, then continue to cook for about 10 minutes, or until all the veggies are nice and cooked down. Add the sausages back to the pan and cook for a few more minutes.
Cut the roll in half length-wise, but not all the way through. Sometimes I like to hollow out a little of the bread to make more room for the actual filling. Fill with the sausage and pepper mixture and top with provolone cheese. Place under the broiler for about 1-2 minutes, or until the cheese is melted. Keep an eye on it though as you don’t want it to burn. Plate and inhale entire sandwich.
