So I had a couple nights of creativity this weekend. As I'm sure you can tell, I don't really make things up much. Sure I tweak and play and bend, but it's usually based off of something someone else has made already. So it was fun for me to do something a little more off the cuff. I'm not going to file this under recipes, because there isn't really a recipe, more of a formula for delicious things. But the two sandwiches I came up with were both awesome and worth eating.
Here was the process: Go over to a friend's house with a grill... go to the grocery store and have the friend and the husband both get filet mignon to grill... since filet mignon is not on my menu of things I eat, go searching around the store for something else to grill... find these Portobello Chicken and Turkey sausages... decide they look awesome... have them derided by our friend as "not red enough"... and bring them home.
So to prepare them the first night, and prove to the guys that my meal was going to be as delicious as theirs, I grilled them till they were all crispy outside, grilled some baby bello mushrooms, sliced up some little tomatoes, grill toasted some grainy bread, and added some mayo on top and viola, awesome sausage sandwich. I though they were amazing, filet mignon be darned.
So the next night I still had some grilled sausages to play with. So this time, I toasted some sourdough, again with the mayo, but this time with some sliced piquillo peppers and basil thrown on there. Mmmmm. Just as good. Possibly better.
End formula? Grill meat. Toast bread. Add oil/butter/mayo/fat substance. Add veggies to taste. Eat. Now if only I can find some focaccia next time, life will be perfect.
