Inspired by a sausage sandwich that we recently had at the Gilroy Garlic Festival, we decided to make them at home, thus this Grilled Italian Sausage Sandwich was one of our simple summer dinners. Served with a big wedge of cold watermelon, it was the perfect casual dinner. We’ve been eating so simply this summer. But simple doesn’t mean short on flavor! This Grilled Italian Sausage Sandwich was loaded with garlic and lots of grilled onions and peppers. The best part of this simple dinner, is that it was all made in one pan. Delicious and simple, you’ve got to love that on these warm summer evenings! I started by grilling the sausage, and once they were cooked through, I added the peppers and onions. Don’t add the garlic yet, it will burn!
Once the peppers and onions are tender, add the garlic and cook for just a few more minutes.
