This week officially marked two months in our new home! So we are celebrating this Mitten Movie Night feeling like we are finally settled in. I made one of my favorite categories of food: the ‘sandwich‘. Topped with saucy goodness and peppers this Smoked Sausage Sandwich is a well deserved reward for a job well done.
Tonight we are drinking 400 Divine Rabbits from a local favorite Greenbush Brewing Co. A great stop if you hit the beach or the casino in New Buffalo. Then finishing up Orange Is The New Black. I have spent many nights since last Friday binge watching it. What shows are your favorites? I will need a new one once this is over.
I would love to take the opportunity to give a little shout out of people that helped us along the way. Since my blog is called ‘Bottom Left of the Mitten’ I thought it was a good platform to showcase who made buying a home in this area such a treat.
Realtor: ‘Power of 2’ Team from Cressy & Everett in Dowagiac. We actually looked at homes a few years ago and she walked us through any and every one we wanted to look at. We just didn’t find ‘the one’ at the time. Called her up when we found this house to show it to us. Three weeks and one day later not only did we have this house but we also sold ours and 4 acres of land.
Inspector: Gary from Lake Michigan Inspections. I cannot recommend this gentleman and his father enough. They walked us through everything, I mean everything, for our new house. Living in town we were new to sewer and well. Same for a gas fireplace and even fixed a cap on the wood burning fireplace.
New Air Conditioner: Rohdy’s—Awesome job! Right before our recent heatwave they worked us in for a quote and then installed the unit. Thanks to them we have stayed comfortable and cool.
Thank you again to everyone! Now on to the food.
Chop up the peppers, onions and mince the garlic. To a bowl add the balsamic vinegar, sugar and olive oil then mix to combine. Sautee over medium/high heat for 7-10 minutes. I love when the peppers are ‘burnt’ a little so I go a little closer to the 10 minute mark.
Our new appliances were purchased in the recent store closing for HH Gregg. This Frigidaire stove has a center griddle that I’ve been using non-stop. No worries if you don’t have a griddle you can use a regular frying pan. Butter buns and place them split side down. Cut the sausage in 4 parts then split down the middle placing that split side down as well. Heat the sausage through for around 3 minutes. Flip both the bun and the sausage then cook around 3 minutes again.
Heating up the spaghetti sauce and assembling the sandwich is all that’s left to do. I heated it up in the microwave for 1 minute. Place bun on plate, add split smoked sausage, layer on the veggies then top with sauce. And here you are…..
From our home in the Bottom Left of the Mitten to yours ~ Enjoy!
