Sausage and Pepper Heros

by Monica Bennion on December 12, 2011

Pair these robust hero sandwiches with our InZINerator Super Hero wine.

2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for brushing
1 lb red bell peppers, thinly sliced
1 large red onion, thinly sliced
2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
1 tsp dried oregano, crumbled
1/2 tsp crushed red pepper
Kosher salt
6 chicken sausages, about 5 ounces each (preferably with roasted pepper or parsley and cheese)
3 long hero rolls, split lengthwise

Heat a large cast-iron or nonstick griddle (you can also use 2 cast-iron or nonstick skillets).  Add the oil, bell peppers, onion, garlic, oregano and crushed red pepper and season with salt.  Cook over moderate heat, stirring occasionally, until the peppers are softened and just beginning to brown, about 6 minutes.  Push the vegetables to the back of the griddle, cover and an inverted heatproof bowl and keep warm over low heat; stir occasionally as you cook the sausages.

Prick the sausages with a knife and cook over moderate heat, turning occasionally, until no trace of pink remains, about 10 minutes.  Add the sausages to the vegetables and keep warm.  Brush the rolls with oil and toast on the griddle.  Fill the toasted rolls with peppers, onions and sausage.
