Turkey Sausage and Sweet Pepper Subs


My husband and I lived in Bend, Oregon for a little while before we had our kids. We used to frequent this little Sub Sandwich joint called New York City Sub Shop. They have the most amazing grilled subs on Earth! (I can't speak for the subs on the other planets.) They are always made on the grill and they always have the most excellent sweet peppers! There are a few different locations, including one in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. If you click on the link above you can check them out.

Anyway, I was thinking about our Beloved Little Sub Shop and I decided we should have some subs for dinner tonight. I didn't have any lunch meat but I did have this great Tomato and Roasted Garlic Turkey Sausage to use up so I used it instead.



Mmm! Sweet Peppers just rock my world!



Here is what went into my version of The New York City Sub:
  • 5 Tomato and Roasted Garlic Turkey Sausages
  • 7 or 8 sweet peppers, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup jack cheese, grated
  • 1 clove minced garlic
  • 1 tsp dried parsley
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 lemon
  • several turns of cracked pepper
  • water
  • 1/3 cup white wine
  • sub rolls
Pour 1 tbsp of your olive oil into a heated pan. Add your garlic and saute for just a minute. Add your sausages and fill your pan with about an inch of water and juice from 1/2 of the lemon. Cook sausage, turning occasionally, until water is just about gone. This will take about 10-12 minutes. Pour in your wine and cumin and cook for another minute. Remove your sausage and set aside. Add the remaining tbsp of olive oil to your pan. Add your peppers, parsley, salt, pepper and juice from the other 1/2 of lemon. Cook, stirring occasionally until tender.

Place your sausage, peppers and jack cheese onto toasted sub rolls and Eat Up!

This recipe will knock your socks off or my name isn't Zelda! Oh yeah, it's not Zelda! Well, anyway, I think you'll really, really enjoy them!

Kim, it looks awfully good, but I'm not sure about the knocking your socks off. It's better to claim "it will make your socks go up and down."

Kim-I think it's such a lovely idea to go back and study to be an RD.I'm sure you can do it-will wait for the day when you tell me you are an R.D!!
I met a nutrition student at OSU a couple of months back,she told me she was 63 yrs old,a soft-ware engineer(now retired)who always had a interest in Nutrition.Now that she had all the time in the world,she wanted to pursue her dreams-inspired? I was:)
