Sausage subs are generally high in calories and high in fat. These made-over subs drop the higher fat ingredients by switching regular pork sausage to lean turkey sausage, and whole milk Mozzarella to nonfat. A shorter French roll completes the calorie trade-off. Also lower in sodium, this tasty sub still passes the flavor test!
| Recipe Makeover|
1 lb lean hot Italian turkey sausage links, cut into 1/2 to 3/4-inch thick rounds
12 oz pizza sauce
1/2 cup cubed green pepper (1/2 inch cubes)
6 French-style rolls, 6-inch, split lengthwise
6 Tbsp shredded nonfat Mozzarella cheese
| Traditional Recipe|
3 lb Italian pork sausage
1 1/2 cup ketchup
1 1/2 tsp dried oregano, crushed
1/3 cup chopped onion
6 French rolls, 8-inch, split
6 slices Mozzarella cheese
Preheat oven to 375ºF.
In a medium skillet, over medium heat, cook turkey sausage 10 to 12 minutes or until the internal temperature registers 165ºF. Remove from heat. Stir in pizza sauce and peppers.
Spoon 1/2 cup turkey mixture into bottom half of each roll and sprinkle with 1 tablespoon of cheese. Cover each roll with top half and wrap in foil.
Bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes or until the subs are hot.
