Creamy Sausage Sandwich
1 pound bulk italian sausage
1 medium onion, chopped
1 small green pepper, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, cubed
1/2 to 1 cup fresh mushrooms, chopped
1/4 c. grated parmesan cheese
1/4 c. water
1/2 t. (or more to taste) dried oregano
6 deli-style buns
1 1/2 c. shredded mozzarella cheese
In a large skillet, cook the sausage, onion, green pepper, & garlic until done & no longer pink; drain & return to pan. Add the cream cheese, mushrooms, parmesan cheese, water, & oregano.
Cook & stir until cheese is melted.
Open the 6 deli-buns. Spread shredded mozzarella cheese on each. Then spread a generous helping of cheesy sausage mixture, & then top with a little more mozzarella. Try to close the buns. (lol)
Place on baking sheet & bake at 375 for 15 minutes or until cheese is melted. You could use a large loaf of Italian bread & make one large sandwich & cut into serving size sandwiches.
This was a hit with everyone! It really was good. And creamy! After typing this recipe, I also see that it could be called Three Cheese Sausage Sandwich!
Whatever the name, it's a keeper.
Here's my plate:
I cut it in half in order to eat it a little easier.
