Italian Sausage Sandwiches

It's snowing outside today and so comfort food is on my mind. I has some leftover italian sausage, so I thought I'd make a hearty lunch out of it.

You can grill these sausages or even cook in a pan, but I used my family's method of oven baking. This method takes longer, but it makes a crispy crust that can't be captured with other methods.

Preheat Oven to 300*F

In a roasting pan, arrange(hot or sweet or both, whatever you like) sausage. Add a small amount of water (about 1/4 of the height of the sausage). Cook covered lightly with foil for one hour. Uncover and turn oven to 400* for 30 minutes or until browned. **Water should be evaporating**
Turn sausage over to brown the other side and raise oven to 425* for 20 minutes.

Meanwhile for the veggies:
1 large sweet onion think sliced
1 bell pepper (I had a green pepper, but love this with red or orange)
2 tbsp olive oil
to taste: salt, pepper & dried oregano

On med-high heat add the olive oil. When oil is hot add onions and peppers and saute for 5 minutes. Gradually add seasoning to your taste.

When the sausage is done, add to cooking veggies and saute for 5 minutes to let flavors meld.
Serve on crispy grinder rolls.
