How to Make a Cajun Chicken Sausage Po Boy:
- Begin the process by chopping your chicken sausage into small pieces.
- Some use food processors to cut the veggies, but for this sandwich cutting your peppers and onions by hand will ensure the pieces are not too small. They are a huge part of the texture in this sandwich.
- Cook your peppers and onions until they are soft and translucent.
- Slice your bread lengthwise then pile on the ingredients before adding to the oven to melt your cheese.
I chose a Pugliese Loaf for the bread as it has more rustic Italian flavors and has a similar texture to ciabatta bread. For the cheese, Provolone was the only way to go.
The creaminess and smokiness of the cheese is a perfect complement to the sausage and peppers.
This recipe is one that I make any time I get a little homesick because it takes me right back to a time when life was as simple as making good grades and eating great food — like this sandwich.
