THM Sausage Sandwich ~ Lifeofjoy.me

Sausage Sandwich (low carb version)

All the cheesy deliciousness of the full carb version sandwich. :)

One meal I really enjoyed before Trim Healthy Mama and keto was Sausage Sandwich which is a creamy, cheesy sausage meat filling on sub roll.

The picture I have here is not a very good one so I will try to get another next time I make this and upload it. ;)

I used turkey sausage this time but you can use any kind of bulk sausage you like. I’ve done it with both pork and turkey.

Start by browning the sausage.

Brown sausage ~ Lifeofjoy.meI cook my veggies in a separate pan because of picky eaters. ;) So I just used 1/2 and onion, about 1/3 green bell pepper, and about 4 ounces of mushrooms, all diced. I cook them with a little bit of coconut oil.

Cooked veggies ~ LIfeofjoy.meI started with the onions and mushrooms and had completely forgotten the green bell peppers, so I just pushed them to the side and added the peppers in. Saute until desired doneness.

Unfortunately, I forgot to get pictures after this point. :(  But when the sausage is browned, add the cream cheese and spices. I add onion powder, garlic powder, salt, and pepper to season the meat up for those picky eaters. ;) Also add in the Parmesan cheese.

I decided to use THM 15 minute focaccia bread in my largest glass baking dish. Next time I’ll make it in a cookie sheet, making it thinner.

Spread the meat mixture on top of the bread. Then top with cheese; I used mild cheddar this time but have used colby jack or mozzarella cheeses before enjoyably.

Put in the oven and melt the cheese. I prefer this as an open-face sandwich but you could just put the sausage filling on half of the bread and put the other half of the bread on top. :)

  8. Place the rest of the cheese on top of the sausage mixture.
