Italian sausages, peppers and onions Wed, 07/14/04 2:31 AM (permalink)
Back when I was in college, we used to do road trips to New York. Much of the attraction was roadfood. One of my roomates was from Brooklyn and had cravings: Nathan's hot dogs (before they went national/chain and you could only get 'em at Coney Island), Ebingers baked goods and so on. But the high point of these trips for me was always the Italian sausages grilled with bell peppers and onions and sold on a roll from little stands in lower Manhattan. These days, of course, I live about 3000 miles from NYC so most of the time I make my own which is pretty easy to do. Actually though, here in San Francisco, there are a lot of neighborhood street fairs and festivals which feature lots of different foods and I've found that these are places I can get favorite roadfoods I woundn't be able to get otherwise--including Italian sausages.

    When i was a kid my grandfather would ake me to the market with him in Boston--my fondest memories of those trips are-1-listening to---and watching!!!-- my grampa's
    cronies talk about women and food in Italian and-2-grilled sausages with peppers and onions of a good crusty roll!!! Now i head for Lovera's in Krebs Ok for my regular fix---they just served them for lunch at a golf tournament we just hosted---about a third of the teams commented that it was the "Lunch by Lovera's" that convinced the to play at ours rather then the two other tournaments in the area!

        Tiki you sure know where to get the best Italian sausage in this area! Just walking thru that little store back to the meat market is a delight to the nose. I am going to have to make a trek down there again. Although Crest Market in Midwest City carries that sausage, but not the cheese or the great smells.

          Sausage,Green pepper and onions fried in olive oil, is there anything better? I use Italian,Portuguese and Spanish sausages whatever I have on hand. Good Hard Rolls or Italian Bread and maybe a little hard italian cheese sprinkled on top.

          Another great sandwich is just SCRAMBLED Eggs and Green Peppers stuffed into fresh Italian bread. So simple but so G00D.

                I prefer to use Italian frying peppers, also known as cubanelles.

                      Can sauteed mushrooms be fit in there somewhere?

                        You can make 'em any way you want, obviously, but I'd prefer mine without 'shrooms. I've never seen those used on versions for sale.

                          I have resisted this temptation from time to time but there is a place in Gatlinburg, TN right on the main drag that fries sausages, onions and peppers right in the front window, out at the sidewalk. I want one everytime I walk by. Next time I will give in and try one, or two.

                            A sausage and pepper sandwich is a way of life!

                            I'm half italian and when I was a young teenager, I used to like to put mustard on my s & p sandwiches. Once, my young friend who was about ten, and a 100% italian, said to me, "you know, you just ruined that sandwich." Ah, a true food lover at such a young age.

                                I cannot imagine anyone fitting them in, but I suppose so.

                                  I sell several italian sausages with onions and peppers from my cart everyday. Now that it is getting cold outside I almost sell as many italian sausages as I do hot dogs. I agree with all of you, they are AWESOME!

                                    Carlton,I do not think I have ever been to Gatlinburg without buying the sausage, onion and pepper sandwich. They have a irrestible method of advertising. They have a open windown and you can smell them cooking from a block away. I always have to have one. Another stand across the street does the same thing and next door to them is a great popcorn stand and you can smell it a block away. It attacks your olafactory senses and good reasoning will fail you. You have to have both.

                                      As a kid we would always go to the Feast of Our Lady of Mount Carmel in Melrose park Il each summer. The smell of the Italian sausage cooking over Charcoal was wonderful. Difference between Chicago and East is that Italian sausage is served on a roll with sauteed bell peppers and/or Giardinera never onions.

                                        Cubanella peppers rule. I fry them in olive oil, salt nicely and eat with Italian bread. Sometimes I add Laughing Cow cheese to the bread and throw the peppers on top. They're great with sausage and peppers as well. I fry mine up with onions and garlic, white wine, diced tomatoes and some tomato sauce and simmer until sausages are done. Yum yum...

                                          The Italian Chefs I used to work with would feed me grilled sausage, sauteed onions and peppers and a roll with tomato sauce and a little mozzerella cheese baked on top... It was one worthy sandwich! (They taste even better when you dont have to make your own!)...

                                            Best sausage, onions and peppers I ever had was at the Columbus, NJ Farmers Market, on flea market day. Amist all the basement/attic stuff was a stall selling the most awsome sausage sandwich I ever had. That was about two years ago. Still remember.

                                              A pizza place here, Candelari's, has been making sausages for years and just in the last year or so opened a small hole-in-the-wall pizza place. For a long time, whenever you ordered a pizza, you got a complimentary 'appetizer' of their Italian sausage with onions and peppers, all cooked in a very good olive oil. They no longer give away the freebie so of course I've started getting the sausage poboy. Awesome. One of the best sandwiches in town.

                                                There are many food stands at the New York State Fair that sell these sandwiches. Once you walk by one or two of these stands, you cannot resist the wonderful smell and just have to buy one (as as appetizer before you hit the Cornell style barbeque chicken stands.)

                                                  San Genaro festival in September in NYC's Little Italy is a whole neighborhood of such goodies on charcoal grills! And you can tape a dollar or more to the statue of the saint for protection against food poisoning and such!

                                                    I always dab some nice bright yellow mustard on my sausage heroes. Doesn't "ruin" it for me. And I add mushrooms if I'm making the peppers mix myself. A tad of butter in the hot olive oil also ... Rusty

                                                      Just curious, because it sounds good... What does the Sausage PoBoy consist of? (Ingredients, other then the obvious sausage)...

                                                        Just onions and peppers (bell) which are sauteed in olive oil rather than grilled, I think. In store there are the usual condiments -- shakers of grated parmesan and pepper flakes. I think I got a little container of the cheese when I got one to go once. In store they've offered some marinara sauce or dark brown mustard. I tried the marinara but didn't think it improved the sandwich. The mustard doesn't sound right to me for an Italian sausage.

Amist all the basement/attic stuff was a stall selling the most awsome sausage sandwich I ever had. That was about two years ago. Still remember.


                                                          Gordon, I grew up in Trenton, and have fond memories of Columbus Farmer's market food. Great sausage and pepper sandwiches, pizza by the slice, etc. I used to love to get a sausage and pepper sandwich "down the shore," too. The combination of boardwalk sounds, ocean scent, and the smell of frying peppers and onions is irresistable! That sandwich and a fresh-squeezed OJ from a Kohr's stand was a little bit of heaven for me. :)

                                                            I dont know about the rest of you but to me Italian Sausage needs to be simmered in a pot of good Tomato Sauce either meat or marinarna for a few hours before it is put on a good crusty roll.I will never eat one of those coiled up ropes you find at a street fair.Gotta have a good sauce!
