Who doesn't love a hot, meaty sandwich layered with tangy spread and grilled veggies? And who doesn't love it in 30 minutes or less? Do you like doing dishes? Yeah, me neither! That's why these Sheet Pan Italian Sausage Sandwiches are perfect for your next family dinner.
How to Bake Sheet Pan Italian Sausage Sandwiches
The beauty of this recipe is how easy it is! Except for a little vegetable chopping, it is nearly hands-off.
Second, chop up 2 bell peppers and 1 red onion into large chunks. I like to use two different colored bell peppers so the Italian sausage sandwiches look pretty.
Throw these vegetables into a bowl and drizzle about 1/4 cup of olive oil on top. Sprinkle in some Kosher salt and black pepper (about a teaspoon each) and then give everything a gentle toss.
Lastly, spread the peppers onto the cookie sheet and then nestle your Italian sausages in between.
Bake these at 425 degrees for about 30 minutes.
Easy Spread for Hoagie Sandwiches
While the Italian sausage sandwiches are cooking, mix together the super easy spread for the hoagie rolls. All you need is:
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/3 cup ketchup
1/4 cup Dijon mustard
This spread tastes a lot like Thousand Island dressing if you are familiar with that!
Then cut your hoagie rolls (or whatever bread you like!) in half and layer on the spread liberally.
Assembling the Italian Sausage Hoagies
Now that the sausages are done cooking, they should be nice and plump! The peppers and onions should have nice grill marks. Those give the sandwiches even MORE flavor!
Now, simply put a sausage inside each roll and cover it with a spoonful or two of peppers and onions. And the best part? Roll that foil up, throw it away, and the dishes are done!
These are best served hot, but they do make great leftovers! Italian Sausage Sandwiches are a great option for hungry teenagers, an easy weeknight meal, or even dinner or lunch on game day. I also find them to be useful in meal prep. Without the roll, they are a protein packed, keto-friendly lunch.
