The best sausage sandwich

Sharing is caring!

Say HELLO to the BEST sausage sandwich you can make! Our posh sausage sandwiches are served on toasted bloomer with rocket, chilli jam, crispy onions and Parmesan shavings.

These are the sausage sandwiches I make when I really fancy a posh sandwich that’ll go along nicely with a glass of wine for dinner. Because lets face it, sausage and ketchup butties with wine just don’t go!

I think you’re just going to LOVE these sausage sandwiches. They’re super simple to make and seriously tasty to eat!

Because they’re so simple to make they’re easily quick enough for weeknight dinner. Those nights when the kids ate early and you really fancy something delicious but can’t really be bothered with doing too much cooking or faff. 

Sausage Sandwich Ingredients

  • 4 slices of white bloomer bread – choose a nice loaf, sourdough bread does work well for this, but I kinda like the softness of a bloomer loaf. Just choose your favourite.
  • 8 chipolata sausages – use good quality sausages for this recipe and choose ones with a high meat content. I like to use The Black Farmer chipolatas, they just cook really well. If you can find Italian flavoured sausage with herbs, they work really well.
  • 1 red onion – pick a medium sized onion and slice it finely, you want the onions to crisp up a little when you fry them.
  • 50g rocket leaves – I use rocket as it adds a nice peppery taste and works well with the Parmesan cheese.
  • 4 teaspoons of tomato chilli chutney – again pick a chutney you like, one with a little kick of heat is good, but if you like things less spicy, just opt for one without the chilli.
  • 30g Parmesan shavings – the cheese shavings add a lovely tangy finish to the sandwich and melt ever so slightly into the crispy onions and warm sausages.
  • 1 tbs Olive oil – I generally fry onions using olive oil, but feel free to swap to rapeseed oil or butter if you prefer.

How to make our hot sausage sandwich recipe

  • Preheat the oven to 180C
  • Put the sausages onto a non-stick baking tray and into the oven to cook for around 30 minutes or until cooked through. Turn them once around half way through cooking time. Slice them lengthways once cooked.
  • Whilst the sausage cook – fry the onions in the olive oil over a medium heat until crispy.
  • To make up the sandwiches – add a handful of rocket leaves to the bread – top with chipolatas, add a spoonful of tomato chilli jam, scatter over the Parmesan and top with the crispy onions.

Wondering what to put in a sausage sandwich?

  • Switch the chipolatas for any sausages you like or switch to meat-free sausages for a vegetarian version.
  • Switch the white bloomer for granary, sourdough or seeded bread.
  • Use whichever salad leaves you like – try baby spinach or baby herb salad.
  • Add in extra toppings – try a fried egg, sprinkling of freshly chopped chillies, or even blue cheese in place of the Parmesan shavings.

Tasty sausage sandwich sides you’ll love!

I just don’t think you can beat a side of nice carb-heavy fries or wedges with a sausage sandwich… and we’ve got some really tasty recipes to choose from.

  • Greek Style Fries (ad feature recipe) – load your fries up with feta cheese, black olives and serve them with a delicious yogurt dip.

BUT….

If you’re trying to be a little bit healthier – then try adding a tasty side salad or homemade coleslaw dressed in a vinaigrette instead of creamy mayonnaise.

Are sausage sandwiches healthy?

Well I know there’s always lots of press about processed meat being unhealthy but that tends to focus on the highly processed sausages that contain nitrates.

Traditional British style sausages have a high meat content and are produced differently without nitrates so shouldn’t be compared to smoked or cured meats like bacon, ham, salami and chorizo.

Always check the packet to look what ingredients are added to your sausages and choose the ones that suit your diet. Read more about traditional British sausages here.
