This sandwich came about when I was trying to use up some bits of things I had in the refrigerator and freezer. It turned out to be one of our all-time favorite sandwiches. For sausage, you can use homemade ones, like these from Vegan Dad, or Tofurkey Italian sausages or Brats. I imagine these would be good with a cup of cooked beans or lentils in place of the sausage. In that case, I’d probably add some chili powder.
I discoved this evening that one of our kittens likes spicy food, too.
Mushroom and Sausage Sloppies
2 or 3 big portobello mushrooms (about 8 ounces, weighed with the stems on)
1 tablespoon olive oil
4 ounces veggie sausage, chopped
about 1/3 cup BBQ sauce
3 or 4 hamburger buns
Remove stems from mushrooms and slice into short, thin strips. Heat oil in a large skillet to medium hot. Saute mushrooms, stirring frequently, until tender and dark, about 10 minutes. Add sausage and enough BBQ sauce to coat everything well. Heat through. Serve on hamburger buns.
