That’s SO Jenn’s Sausage and Peppers

Mmm comfort food. There’s almost nothing like it. Grasping your hands around a fluffy sub roll stuffed with savory sausages that pop when you sink your teeth into them. A trio of semi sweet peppers and fragrant onions plays well with the spicy and mild grilled meats. That warm, bulky bread cradles melted provolone and all the fix-ins.

Here, two varieties of Premio Foods fresh Italian sausages are the star of the show. The first, a traditional pork version made with imported fennel that is immediately evident upon the first juicy bite. The earthy richness tastes as though it comes straight from an Italian deli.

Next, fresh hot and spicy chicken sausage, which provides an instant zest, waking up your taste buds with a punch of heat. The balanced kick was just enough to keep me going back for more without overpowering each mouthful. It’s almost hard to believe this one is made with chicken, or that it’s 60% fat-free for that matter!

Both gluten-free selections stand on their own without any added seasoning necessary, perfect for a dish like this that allows the main component to shine. Looking for a twist? Add a side of marinara for dunking, much like a french dip with au jus. Hearty, satisfying perfection.
