Gourmet Sausage Sandwich with Mushrooms and Onion Jam

Preparation: 30 minutes | Cooking: 10 minutes | Serves: 2

This is one of our favourite sausage recipes – it’s a fancy twist on a typical ‘sausage sanga’. These gourmet sausage sandwiches are sure to be loved by adults and kids alike (you may need to keep a bottle of tomato sauce handy…).


  • 3 thick beef sausages
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 200 g mixed mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 pieces of Turkish bread, halved horizontally and toasted
  • rocket leaves
  • Onion jam
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 red onion, sliced
  • 2 tbsp sweet chilli sauce
  • 2 tsp white wine vinegar
  • 1 tbsp water


  1. Preheat the barbecue/grill/pan and either cook the sausages over moderate heat until cooked through and browned.
  2. While the sausages are cooking, heat the oil in a fry-pan and add the garlic and mushrooms. Cook over moderately-high heat until mushrooms are golden.
  3. To make onion jam: Heat a small fry-pan and add the oil. Stir in onion and cook over a low heat for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in the sweet chilli sauce, white wine vinegar and water. Cook over low heat for a further 15 minutes, stirring often.
  4. To serve: Slice the sausages half length-ways. Place the bottom slices of toasted Turkish bread onto 2 plates. Top with some rocket leaves, three halves of sausage, and the mushrooms. Finish with a spoonful of onion jam and the top slice of toasted bread.

Sausage sandwiches don’t get any better than this!
