Kitchen Tools Needed
- Cast-iron skillet

Prepare the Oven and Rolls:
- Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C).
- Run the artisan rolls under water and then bake for 5-10 minutes to crisp them up.
Cook the Sausages:
- In a cast-iron skillet, add avocado oil and heat it over medium-high heat.
- Once the oil is hot, add the Italian sausages. Sear them for 4-5 minutes per side until they have a nice brown crust.
- Reduce the heat to low and cook the sausages for an additional 5 minutes.
- 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:
- 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:
- In a mixing bowl, combine all the sauce ingredients and mix well until smooth.
Toast the Buns:
- Cut the artisan rolls in half and toast them in the skillet using the remaining sausage oil.
Assemble the Sandwich:
- 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.
