Sausage, pepper and onion sandwiches have always been and will always be a classic in my family. My Nana Lulu and my mom made them often when I was growing up. They’re more of an Italian American street food that is everywhere here in NJ. Since I was really craving them, I decided to make my best estimation of my family’s recipe. Oh my goodness, it was so simple and amazing!
While the filling cooked, I toasted up soft cheese steak rolls to hold it. Then I filled them up generously with the sausage mixture and we were ready to eat. They were everything I remembered from my childhood and more! The wine and tomato paste really gave the sausage, pepper and onion sandwiches a huge depth of flavor. This recipe ended up yielding enough for 6 sandwiches, so we even got leftovers! Score! I hope you all love this classic as much as we do. xoxo
