Italian Sausage Sandwiches

Italian Sausage Sandwiches


  • 2 cups
  • 4 (3.5-ounce) links sweet Italian turkey sausage reserved from Lasagna, cut in half lengthwise
  • 1 (8-ounce) loaf French bread, cut in quarters diagonally
  • 4 ounces reduced-fat Jarlsberg or Swiss cheese, thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons country-style Dijon mustard


Preheat oven to 450°.

Reheat onion and pepper mixture in a microwave-safe bowl on high for about 2 minutes or until heated through, stirring once after about 1 minute.

In a separate dish, reheat sausages for 3 to 4 minutes or until heated through.

Slice each baguette quarter in half horizontally, cutting almost through to the other side. Arrange bread on a baking sheet, cut sides up. Top half of each portion with 1 ounce cheese. Bake at 450° for 3 minutes or until cheese melts and bread is lightly toasted. Remove from oven.

Spread mustard evenly over bread. Top with 2 sausage halves and 1/2 cup onion-pepper mixture.

  • Yield: Serves 4 (serving size: 1 sandwich)
