Tasty Tuesdays! GF Sausage, Egg & Pepper Sandwich

It has been sooooo busy these past several weeks.  I know the last time I looked at the calendar it was Memorial Day and now it's the end of July.  Where does it all go?  Between camping, fishing, pulling teeth, and all of the other things that happen between breakfast and bedtime time just flies.  I always wanted to fly....pardon me.....back to the blogging.  :)  My boys just got back from spending several days with their granddad.  He spends quite a bit of time with them but wanted to get them individually this summer.  I took my oldest down and then we traded kids at the halfway through so he got to spend a bit more than 3 days each with them.  We were originally shooting for a week each but life got in the way.  He had a Colorado trip that had been planned for a year and the boys had other activities going as well.  They had a GREAT time together and talk about it constantly.  My dad is a lot more mellow than I used to remember but I suppose that is the way it's supposed to be with your grandkids.

I plan to do some more Dutch Oven cooking soon, as I got a new 12" oven from dad that I'm dying to try. You can see some of my Dutch Oven recipes on the right hand side when you look at the archives.This week's recipe is one that I have had in different variations in my life but never quite like this.  I have been to a good number of the 5* cooking classes at Michael Fusco's Riverside Grill in Tulsa, OK this summer.  Michael is a family friend and an unbelievable chef!!  I really enjoy the classes and you the readers get to "go" along with me as you read the Tasty Tuesdays! posts.   It's often enjoyable to write about something like this class after you've taken it because you remember and pick up on things that you didn't when you were there before.  This one is super easy and sooo good!  Ok, on to the recipe!  It is as follows:


2 Tbps. olive oil

1 medium onion, thinly sliced

1 green bell pepper, sliced

3 eggs, beaten

Sea salt & freshly ground black pepper

1 Large link of sweet Italian sausage (browned and cooked) 400 degree oven is the best way....

Feather shredded Pecorino Romano as desired

1 Loaf GF Italian bread (such as a bastone or a chiabatta)


When browning the sausage, it is best to put it in a 400 degree oven.  This browns it very nicely and you can do it a step ahead to save time or prepare more sausages to have extras for future meals.

Heat a saute' pan over medium heat then add enough olive oil to cover the bottom.  Add the onion and peppers, regulating heat so the onions don't burn.  Saute' until the peppers have softened. 

Slice the sausage on an angle and add to the peppers / onions & brown.  You want to brown well for a rustic flavor and aroma.  Just until the sausage skin is ready to come off but still attached.

Raise the heat to medium-high nad add the beaten eggs.  Stir to combine with the onions and peppers and season with salt and pepper.  Cook, stirring occasionally, until the eggs are set.

Slice the bread lengthwise without cutting all the way through, remove center.  When the eggs are done, gently slide them onto the bread to make a sandwich and cut the loaf into four portions.  Serves 2 - 4.

By the way, this tasted better than it looked, and that is really saying something!  I am normally not a bell pepper fan but the sandwich was delicious!  I have eaten many new things taking these classes than I normally would.   Enjoy!!

How great that your kids get to have alone time with grandpa. That will make for some cherished memories.

This looks scrummy, good enough, in fact, to skip the bread and just tuck in. Thank you for sharing your class again at Two for Tuesday.

It was great Kim and I am not usually a fan of cooked bell peppers. I may be converted! I didn't post the recipe for the sauce but it is a marinara with a little Pecorino cheese on top.

Thanks for the kind words and for stopping by SS!

I love bell peppers and onions. What a great breakfast sandwich! So much better than the fast food ones. I also have been doing some Dutch oven cooking. I look forward to more posts about yours.

I don't like green peppers but don't mind red, orange or yellow. I bet that sandwich was full of flavor.
