Kitchen Tools Needed

  • Cast-iron skillet

  • Knife
  • Oven


Prepare the Oven and Rolls:

  1. Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C).
  2. Run the artisan rolls under water and then bake for 5-10 minutes to crisp them up.

Cook the Sausages:

  1. In a cast-iron skillet, add avocado oil and heat it over medium-high heat.
  2. Once the oil is hot, add the Italian sausages. Sear them for 4-5 minutes per side until they have a nice brown crust.
  3. Reduce the heat to low and cook the sausages for an additional 5 minutes.

Flavor Infusion:

  1. Add the sliced onions, basil leaves, and black pepper to the skillet. Sauté everything together with the sausages for about 3-4 minutes.

Resting the Sausages:

  1. Remove the sausages from the skillet and let them rest on a chopping block, topped with the sautéed onion and basil, for 4 minutes.

Prepare the Sauce:

  1. In a mixing bowl, combine all the sauce ingredients and mix well until smooth.

Toast the Buns:

  1. Cut the artisan rolls in half and toast them in the skillet using the remaining sausage oil.

Assemble the Sandwich:

  1. For each sandwich, layer in the following order: start with the bottom bun, add a layer of mixed greens or arugula, place two sausages, top with sautéed onion and basil, spoon on a generous amount of sauce, add 1-2 slices of heirloom tomato, and finally two fresh basil leaves. Close the sandwich with the top bun.
