Italian Turkey Sausage Sandwiches

I love to keep pre-cooked sausages on hand in my freezer.  They are easy to pull out last-minute, thaw in the microwave and use in various different recipes. One of my family’s favorite meals for lunch, dinner or linner is Italian sausage sandwiches.


These sandwiches come together quickly and easily.  All you need is a package of italian turkey or chicken sausages, a 16 ounce jar of spaghetti sauce, buns, provolone (or any cheese you have on hand will work), and butter.

Ribbet collageI split the sausages in half lengthwise, brown them in a skillet, pour the marinara sauce over them, simmer for a few minutes, place a sausage plus a nice ladle of sauce on a toasted bun, cover with a slice of provolone or mozzarella cheese, melt under the broiler and Voila!!  Dinner is served in 15 minutes FLAT!



Everyone loves this meal and I love it because it’s so easy and it’s t perfect for using up leftover hamburger buns, or sub sandwich buns, I always have leftover buns of some sort!





There you have it!  Your dinner dilemma is solved.  You are so welcome.  You know I love you and only want to see you eat2gather with your fam-buh-lee.

I am still up in the U.P., if you havent’ heard from me by Monday the 11th know that

1.) I o’d on fudge.

2.) Got lost in the wilderness and hugged to death by a cuddly black bear.

3. Am still in search of a decent pastie….I may be gone awhile.

Yaaaa, Sheila

    MMMMMMMMM. I’ve been doing Barre 3 nights a week so I need dinners that come together super quickly. This is perfect. And it makes total sense to go to Barre and then come home and eat this right?
    It IS turkey sausage after all. 🙂

    That’s a great quick dinner. I have been known to open the sausages and make meatballs out of them and have meatball subs. This is easier!

    What a great idea! I never thought of pre-cooked sausages in the freezer. Super time saver when crunched for time for dinner! Will do!


  1. […] I know you’re thinking I will never in a million years eat 110 meatballs!  Hey you just never know.  These meatballs can be used in so many recipes.  Slice them in half and put them on pizza.  You can use them in this recipe instead of sausage, they are perfect in Mexican Soup (as seen above), in a pinch they also can be used in Swedish Meatballs, or put in a slow cooker with your favorite barbecue sauce for an appetizer.  The possibilities are endless.  Oops I forgot to mention Meat Ball Subs!
