One of my favorite family meals is sausage & peppers. This is pretty close to the recipe I normally use but I changed it up slightly to make into a sandwich! My Dad use to roast peppers and put them on bread and he too loved a good sausage and pepper sandwich!! Today would have been his birthday, so I wanted to share something I know he’d love!
The peppers are roasted to perfection and brings out the flavor. Yum!

5-6 Italian sausage links (Mild or Spicy)
1 large onion, cut into strips
2 red peppers, cut in strips
2 yellow peppers, cut in strips
2 orange peppers, cut in strips
1 T olive oil
2 t oregano
1 t garlic powder
1 t onion powder
Sprinkle: Salt & Pepper
1 loaf Crusty Bread or 6 rolls
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
Directions: Preheat oven to 375°. Bake sausage for 15 minutes in a large oven safe pan. After times up remove sausage and set aside.
Add in peppers, onions and drizzle with olive oil. Sprinkle with oregano, garlic and onion powder. Mix well. Add into oven for 30 minutes mixing half way through.
After 30 minutes add sausage back into the pan and cook another 20-25 minutes mixing half way through. Make sure sausage is completely cooked. Peppers should be soft and tender. Remove from oven and season with salt and pepper.
Cut sausage in pieces or in half to put on the bread. Cut the bread or rolls open and put in the oven to let crisp up. Top the bread with the peppers and onions and sausage. Add a few pinches of shredded cheese and enjoy!!! Yum!
