Vittles with the Vaughans - Sausage, Pepper and Onion Hero Sandwich

Our hunting adventures from last season filled our freezer with loads of venison.  We love venison, so we are happy to have a what seems like an endless supply of it, but we are eager to find new ways to cook it!  We use it about 1-2 times a week for tacos, spaghetti, sausage – I have also used the sausage for red beans and rice and breakfast tacos.

As I searched online, I found this weight watchers recipe for Sausage Subs and thought we would try it out…

  • 8 oz. Sausage - Turkey or Venison
  • 1 tsp olive oil 
  • 1 Tbsp minced garlic, or to taste
  • 1 Medium Vidalia Onion, thinly sliced 
  • 1 medium sweet red pepper(s), thinly sliced 
  • 1 medium green pepper(s), thinly sliced 
  • 1 Tbsp balsamic vinegar 
  • Sub Rolls

1. Coat a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray and set over medium heat. Sauté sausage until browned, about 5 minutes; remove to a plate and cover to keep warm.   

2. Add oil to same skillet and heat for about 45 seconds; add garlic and sauté until golden, about 30 seconds. Add onion and sauté for 3 minutes. Add peppers and sauté until vegetables are softened, about 6 to 8 minutes more.

3. Stir in vinegar and then return sausage to skillet; toss to combine.

5. Split bread lengthwise—almost, but not all the way through; fill with sausage mixture. Cut into 4 equal pieces and serve. Yields 1/4 of hero per serving.

We added a cucumber salad with a raspberry vinaigrette for the side dish - great meal!
