BRUSSELS SPROUTS SANDWICH
Recipe by: Mark Calaminici | Food Loves Company
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
2 tbsp butter
½ lb brussels sprouts, thinly sliced (mandolin) or chopped
2-3 hot sausage, casing removed and broken up into small pieces
Freshly ground pepper
Juice of ½ lemon
4 brioche buns, sliced and toasted
150g gruyere cheese, shredded
½ cup dijonnaise
1. Whisk together 2 parts mayonnaise to 1 part Dijon mustard, depending on your taste. You can add a bit of grainy mustard as well for extra flavour and texture.
1. In a large skillet over medium heat, heat extra virgin olive oil and butter. Add sausage and sauté until half cooked, about 2-3 minutes. Add Brussels sprouts and season with salt and freshly cracked pepper. Sauté until everything is cooked, about 4-5 minutes. Once done add lemon juice and mix.
2. Lay toasted brioche bun on work surface and add brussels sprouts and sausage mixture to the bottom half of the brioche bun. Add a small handful of gruyere cheese and place in a toaster oven or broiler to melt the cheese. Spread a small dollop of dijonnaise on the top half of the brioche bun and enjoy!
Until next time, ciao!
