Chicken sausage sandwich with sauteed peppers and onion served on a pretzel roll bun. Great recipe for game day, cookouts, barbecues, get together, or an easy dinner.
I think one of the best parts of vacation, in my opinion, is getting to try new restaurants and different foods. We don’t go out to eat a lot at home, so it is a special treat when we are traveling. Especially when you go to a new area, that is known for good food. I hope to share a post on Thursday Things about the food we had on our trip to California, but in the meantime I made a homemade version of something that we had on our trip!
On our last night in California we were in Disney Land. We went to a German style restaurant in the park for dinner. I had a flatbread pizza, but my husband had a chicken sausage sandwich. It was served on a pretzel roll and topped with sauerkraut. We aren’t big fans of sauerkraut, so back at home I topped it with sauteed peppers and onions instead. I like using chicken sausage in recipes. They now have so many great varieties available, that you really can mix this up just about any way you can think of. I used an Italian sausage version this time.
I have made pretzel rolls before. They always go over really well here. My husband makes the comment every time that we really need to have them more often. I am honestly not sure why we don’t. There is no kneading involved, so they are pretty easy to make. Just mix, shape, boil, and bake. Obviously this time I shaped more like a hot dog bun instead of a roll, but no matter what way you shape them, the recipe and the method are exactly the same. Trust me, these are a great replacement for hamburger buns too.
