I'm not in New Jersey, I'm in Ohio. Why not make your own, as I do.

AMEN!!! summer on the boardwalk-- definitely the best place to get sausage/pepper sandwiches..other than that. make your own.. brown sausage/saute onions and peppers in a bit of olive oil/serve and eat.. it's good but not as good as jersey shore stuff.... :)

I had a real good S & P Sub a few months ago at an old old small deli called John's Market on South Essex Street in Orange. Total time warp of a place, a bonus. Appears to date from the 1930's.

Sorry I don't have the exact address handy, but coincidentally the Star Ledger did a writeup last week on the Sanitary Bakery, just a few doors down. Another time warp of a place. Both worth checking out. ---Ken

Tommy's in Elizabeth is what I have been looking for. Jerry's frankfurters are incredible as well.

Tommy's is considered by many to be the best in the state for Italian Sausage. They also make a great Italian Hot Dog, second only to Charlies. I love Jerry's. It's my wife's favorite.

There ya go gettin me salivating again!! This was brought up somewhere else and I went into the whole early morning surf fishing in Seaside while the sausage places opened and the aroma wafted across the sand...ooohh MAN! I recapture the moment using a lg cast iron fry pan, a pound or 2 ot hot italian sausage and a couple green peppers and onions well lubricated with olive oil. After the sausage has been browned all over cover and reduce the heat so it all "sweats" together. A little tomatoe sauce can be added, just enough to coat not drown the ambrosia..

I guess the best sausage would be the hottie at Syds. It was tast and smoky with a hint of a "Minty" taste. Try it and lemme know!

For the best sazeech sandwich you can make it at home the way i do. Slice up a few peppers and onion and put it into a crock pot with one 8 ounce can of tomato sauce...mix it up...then add 8 italian sausage links I use either Shop Rite Brand or A&P brand, both are good. Now....Do not mix the sausage into the peppers and onions,,,you dont want to get sauce on top of the sausages ...if you do then they wont brown. simply lay them across the top.....cover the crockpot and set on low for 6 hours then serve on your favorite roll. Bon Appetite~!

I make mine with both hot and sweet sausage and with onions and cubanelle peppers, known to some as Italian frying peppers.

I also like to use both hot and sweet.  Ialso use cubanelle and ripe bell peppers(the green ones remind me I've eaten them for hours) and sweet onion, sliced. I also like to add some homemade meatballs that I keep in the freezer for those who prefer a meatball sandwich. All that's needed are some good rolls!

There's a local company here that makes really good sausage, Uncle Charley's. I get extra hot, fry them up slow with onions, bell peppers, and hot Hungarian peppers. Sometimes cheese and sauce, sometimes not, but always on Breadworks bread. I make my own kielbasa, but for some reason, never did Italian sausage. I'm going to someday, and try cold smoking smoking it too. Do you guys think that'd be good, or too close to kielbasa or hot links?

A pepper by any other name is still as sweet!
They're also sometimes called Banana Peppers and Poblano's and Anaheim's can be substituted.
Do you roast & peel your Cubanelle's before using them?

Actually, a cubanelle pepper has a thinner wall than a banana pepper, and is usually less elongated and slender. And no, I do not do anything to them before frying, other than to cut them up and remove the seeds.
 
Oh, and cubanelles are much more mild than banana peppers.

By the way, Italian frying peppers,Cubanelle, are great by themselves as a sandwich. Just fry them after cutting them in half lengthwise(in olive oil),turning once or twice. Let them get a little color, but don't burn. Done when they are soft. Salt and serve on the best crispy Italian bread you can find. Heaven!!!!!

Now that sounds good. Extra cubanelles have just been added to the shopping list.
