As the college yr winds down, I’m bracing myself for what’s shaping as much as be the busiest of all summers. With baseball, soccer, gymnastics, camps, and cabin journeys on the schedule, I’m going cross-eyed simply taking a look at my Google calendar. What occurred to these stress-free summers spent on the lake, snacking, consuming, and tanning on day? Since we’ll be spending 4 evenings every week on a baseball or soccer area, fast and simple dinners shall be my saving grace, as will Potbelly and Jimmy John’s every so often. Let’s be sincere.
However in an try to preserve issues wholesome, home-cooked, fast, and simple, I’ve been venturing into the world of sheet pan dinners. When you haven’t but caught onto the craze, sheet pan dinners usually include chopped greens and a protein of alternative which might be seasoned and roasted collectively on a sheet pan. Minimal prep and cook dinner time. Examine! Veggie servings met. Examine! Straightforward clean-up. Examine!
These Sheet Pan Sausage and Pepper Hoagies may simply be a wholesome, low carb dinner possibility by skipping the hoagie rolls. However I added an additional particular step on the finish of the recipe to make this an enormous ol’ toasted-bun-sandwich sort of meal. Staying true to the sheet pan dinner code of conduct (pls don’t take me severely), I made certain that the hoagie rolls had been added to the sheet pan ensemble so that they could possibly be toasted within the oven. What does this imply? After the sausage and veggies are roasted, place some olive oil-brushed hoagie rolls on high (sure, they’ll be masking the veggies and sausage) and return the whole lot again into the oven so the veggies can roast (carmelize!) a bit bit longer and the hoagie rolls can toast to golden-brown perfection.
Talking of caramelization, the star of this meal, for my part, are the peppers and onions. You received’t consider how splendidly sweetened and barely charred they turn into from simply 30 minutes within the oven. That sweetness balances fantastically with the boldly-flavored rooster sausage. I selected a light candy Italian selection I discovered at my native retailer, however I’m assured any taste would work properly with the peppers and onion combo.
Onto the tomatoes! Once I dreamed up this recipe, I saved picturing an enormous slather of marinara sauce excessive of every hoagie however I didn’t need to take care of the mess issue or soggy buns. As a compromise and a strategy to keep true to that code of conduct, I added sliced tomatoes to the sheet pan. When seasoned properly and roasted, they sweeten up and turn into wilted and saucy, including the correct quantity of tangy taste to spherical out the entire sandwich.
As soon as the sausage and pepper hoagies are assembled, notice that it’s completely acceptable so as to add a half slice of provolone to soften excessive. Or a to maintain it mild, a bit sprinkle of grated parm will do the trick.
Sheet Pan Sausage and Pepper Hoagies are on deck. Deliver it on, summer time!
