Turkish Sausage Sandwich (Sucuk Sandviç)
Turkish sausage sandwich can be prepared in numerous ways. To create this sandwich, I used whatever I had on hand. It is easy to be creative in making a sandwich with Turkish sausage, so use your creativity. The best part of the sandwich is the sausage, so anything will go with it. Enjoy.
Note: Turkish sausage can be found in Turkish markets or Mediterranean stores.
1 Turkish sausage ring (1 lb package) or any other hard sausage
8 slices of kaşar cheese (pale yellowish sheep’s cheese) or any other hard cheese
4 hamburger buns or hoagies or 1 quartered baggett
2 green bell peppers (sliced thick)
2 tomatoes (sliced)
Pickled small peppers for garnishing
3-4 green onions for garnishing
½ tomato for garnishing
½ green bell pepper for garnishing
Cut the sausage ring in half right in the middle. Each half will make two sandwiches. Cut each half in 3-4 slices lengthwise in thickness of 1/3 of an inch. Some of the pieces may be smaller than others due to the shape of the sausage. You also may adjust the length of the sausages according to the bread you are using.
Heat a non-stick pan. Place the sausage slices in the hot pan for two minutes on each side. Do not add any oil or butter, as the sausage will be cooked in its own fat. Spread as much mayo as you want on the bread. Put the sausage slices on the bottom of the sandwich. Place the cheese on top of the sausage. Add the tomatoes and green peppers to the sandwich and enjoy with yogurt or cacık.
Serve with hot pickled small peppers, tomatoes, cucumbers and green onions.
