My New Favorite Indulgence – Hot Italian Sausage Grinders

Hot Italian Sausage Grinders at HomeI have always loved spicy foods and with that comes a love of Hot Italian Sausage Grinders. You know, subs, that’s what some people call them. They are the most delicious things ever and I make them at home.

I purchase sandwich or grinder rolls at my local grocery store. I then purchase Hot Italian Sausage grinders in Premo brand. I also purchase onions and green peppers. First you saute the onions and green peppers (sliced) in a pan with butter. Keep a watchful eye on the veggies so as to not brown them too much, unless you prefer them that way.

Next you cook the Premo Hot Italian Sausage in a skillet. Basically add water, the sausage and cover. Heat for 10 minutes, then uncover and heat for another 10-15 minutes. Making sure to turn the sausages as they cook, this ensures each side is browned. I personally hate to mess with raw meat, so I use a meat thermometer to ensure that they temperature of the meat has reached 160 degrees, citing it is fully cooked.

Then place sausage and onions with green peppers in your grinder/sandwich roll. For an added touch to mine, I put a slice of cheese in the bottom of the grinder/sandwich roll first then place sausage and onion and green peppers.


Smells Like a Wet Dog

The other day I was making breakfast for the boys, we had sausage links cooked in the microwave and I made scrambled eggs on the stove. When I took the sausage links out of the microwave I said “ew smells like a wet dog”, the sausage seriously smelled so gross, I could barely eat it. I did eat it and the scrambled eggs too.

I set up a plate of scrambled eggs with two sausage links for the boys and all of a sudden I hear AJ say “tastes like wet dog“. I died of laughter. Remember parents …. watch what you say because little ears are constantly listening to you!

They may not repeat it exactly like you said it but they will repeat it regardless of what it is that was said!
