Chicken Sausage Gut Bombs
This is a healthier version of a meal my Dad makes. He makes big Italian Sausages, puts them in a roll, and covers them with sauteed onions and peppers [correction - my Dad just let me know that he grills the veggies]. He calls them Gut Bombs. Charles saw sausage at Trader Joe's and asked if we could have it for dinner. We chose to have Chicken Sausage to keep things a little healthier. We were actually at Trader Joe's to purchase ingredients for Sirloin Tips, a recipe that calls for sauteed onions, peppers, and mushrooms. I was prepping the Sirloin Tips that night, so I just sauteed some extra veggies and set them aside for the sausages. We served this on a Pretzel Roll.
You will need:
Chicken Sausage, and variety - we had Spicy and Spinach Fontana
1/2 cup Mushrooms
Saute the mushrooms, onion and pepper in olive oil until soft and slightly browned.
Cook the sausage either on a griddle or in a large skillet. I sliced the sausage in half vertically and cooked each side until it was browned.
Assemble on a roll and enjoy.
