Sausage And Mixed Pepper Subs

This is a very quick and simple dish to make.  It is kid friendly so your children can join in on making and assembling them.  Here are the ingredients you will need:

1 lb Sausage link, Sliced into to 2 inch pieces on diagonal ( I use andouille)

2 Green Bell Peppers , Thinly sliced and  seeded

2 Red Bell peppers, Thinly sliced and seeded

2 Onions, Thinly sliced

Salt and pepper to taste

2 Tsp. Italian Seasoning

2 Cloves Garlic, Minced

1 Pack of sub rolls ( your choice)

2 Tbsp. Olive Oil

(1.) In a large skillet over medium heat, Heat the oil and add the sausage. Cook until just browned around the edges. About 5 to 8 minutes. Remove to a bowl or plate. Set aside.

(2.) Add the Onion, both bell peppers, Salt, Pepper, Garlic and the Italian seasoning. Stir to combine. Cook over medium low heat until just tender. About 20 minutes.  Add the sausage back in and cook an additional 5 minutes. Remove to a serving platter or bowl.

(3.) Split the rolls and add the sausage/pepper mixture (and desired condiments if you want).   and serve.

This meal is not to heavy and is great for lunch or dinner. The vegetables are not cooked to long and still have a nice crispness to it. The color of the vegetables are still bright and still have a majority of their nutrients which is very good for you. It is not cooked in butter or extra fat that add more calories to it. You get the freshness and taste of the vegetables.


Fried Green Tomato Sandwiches With Spicy Mayo

For the Mayo:

1/2 c. Mayonnaise

1 Green Onion, Minced

1/2 Tsp. Cayenne Pepper

Salt and Pepper ( to taste)

For the Sandwiches:

6 Green Tomatoes, Sliced 1/4 to 1/2 Inch thick

1 c. Buttermilk

Salt and Pepper

1 1/2 c. Flour

1/2 c. Cornmeal

1/2 Tsp. Smoked Paprika

12 Slices of Bread

1/2 Tsp. Garlic Powder

Oil For Frying

(1.) In a bowl toss together the Buttermilk and Tomato slices together and chill covered for 1 hour.

(2.) In a bowl stir together the mayo, Onion, Cayenne, Salt and Pepper. Cover and chill for 1 hour so flavors and develop.

(3.) In another bowl whisk together the Flour, Cornmeal, Salt, Pepper, paprika and the Garlic powder. Set aside for a minute so you can heat up a large skillet.

(4.) Over medium heat Add enough oil to come up the pan about 1/2 inch.  Dip the Buttermilk Tomatoes into the Cornmeal/Flour Mixture and carefull place into the Hot oil.  Cook for about 3 to 4 minutes on each side. Drain on paper towels. Only cook about 4 or 5 at a time depending on the size of the pan so you do not steam them instead of browning them. Allow the fried tomatoes to cool completely.

(5.) Spread some of the Spicy Mayo on both slices of bread and place two Fried Tomatoes on to one piece of bread and top with the other half of the bread. You can cut the sandwich in half  if you want. You can also leave out the Cayenne if  you want to serve it to kids.

This recipe is a great Sandwich recipe for the summer. I think that Fried Green tomatoes are a great Southern Staple. They are everywhere in the South during the Spring and Summer. If it is on a Sandwich or just as a side they are equally delicious.

Sweet And Spicey Joes

kids love Sloppy Joes. They love the sweet taste of the sauce in the mixture. Well,  As adults we still love them but sometimes they are just to sweet for our tastes. This recipe you get the best of both worlds. The Slightly sweet taste with the Heat in the background where it is not to overpowering. You still get that Child like quality of the dish that brings you right back to being a child. Serve with some Baked Fries and you have hit a Home run meal that Kids and Adults alike will enjoy. Here is what you need:

1 lb Ground Beef or Turkey

1 Green Bell Pepper

1/2 Red Onion, Diced

2 Cloves of Garlic, Minced

1 C. Crushed Tomatoes

1/4 c. Ketchup

1/4 c. Brown Sugar

1 Tbsp. Chili Powder

1 Tbsp. Dijon or Spicy Brown Mustard

1/2 Tsp. Red Pepper Flakes

2 Tsp. Worcestershire Sauce

1/2 Tsp. Salt

3/4 Tsp. Pepper


(1.) Heat up a Skillet over Medium Heat. Add in the Beef or Turkey and cook until browned and cooked through. Drain off any of the extra fat.

(2.) Add in the Onion, Garlic and Bell Pepper. Cook for 5 minutes or until tender but not browned. Add the Crushed Tomatoes, Brown sugar, Chili Powder, Mustard, Red Pepper Flakes, Worcestershire Sauce, Salt and Pepper. Stir together to combine well. Turn heat to low and cook for 25 to 30 minutes stirring occasionally to keep from burning on bottom. The  mixture will get thick. When the mixture is to your liking then remove from heat and spoon on to buns and serve as sandwiches or open face sandwiches. Either way it is still good.

This is one Sandwich that is good and messy. Make sure you have extra napkins handy. You can also adjust the heat of the Red Pepper Flakes to your likeness. Add less for mild and more for extra spicy.
