How To Make Italian Sausage Sandwich Recipe:

Here is how to make these easy Italian Sausage sandwiches. 

First slice all your vegetables and sausage and lay them evenly on a sheet tray. Drizzle with olive oil and toss to combine.

Make sure the vegetables and sausage are not overlapping a ton or they will not get caramelized.

What To Serve With Italian Sausage Sandwiches:

My Favorite Mediterranean Salad

Air Fryer Potato Wedges With Garlic Browned Butter

Roasted Broccolini With Pecorino and Pinenuts

Variations and Personal Touches:

Spice it Up:

  • If you love heat, choose spicy Italian sausage and add an extra pinch of crushed red pepper to the vegetables.

Cheese Lover’s Delight:

  • Experiment with different cheeses like provolone, mozzarella, or even a sharp Parmesan. Melting the cheese enhances the sandwich’s gooey, indulgent quality.

Grilled Goodness:

  • Take the flavors to the next level by grilling the sausage links. The smoky char will add an enticing depth to the overall taste.
