Andouille Po' Boy
A po' boy (or poor boy) is a traditional submarine sandwich made with meat or fish (usually fried) that hails from Louisiana. Choose a baguette/roll with a fairly soft crust, similar to New Orleans-style bread, which also makes the sandwich easier to eat.
1/2 cup Creole or other stone-ground mustard
1/3 cup mayonnaise
1/2 teaspoon Cajun seasoning
1/4 cup (about 1 ounce) Wisconsin Parmesan Cheese, grated
2 tablespoon butter
2 large sweet onions, thinly sliced
4 fully cooked pork or chicken Andouille sausages, split lengthwise
4 French rolls or 4 baguette slices, cut to sausage length (about 5-inches long)
1 cup fresh spinach leaves
1 1/2 cups Wisconsin provolone cheese, shredded
Hot Louisiana-style pepper sauce (optional)
- For Sauce: Combine all ingredients in small bowl. Refrigerate until ready to use.
- For Sandwiches: Heat butter in heavy medium skillet. Add onions, tossing to coat with butter. Cook over low heat, stirring occasionally, for about 20 minutes or until onions are soft and caramelized. Salt and ground black pepper to taste. Keep warm.
- Brush griddle or heavy skillet with cooking spray or unflavored oil. Heat until almost smoking. Place sausages cut-side-down on griddle. Turn when browned, and brown skinned-side, cooking until heated through.*
- Split rolls or baguette slices lengthwise. Spread the cut sides (tops and bottoms) generously with prepared sauce. Spread about 1/4 cup of spinach leaves on each roll bottom. Top each with 1/4 of onions. Sprinkle Provolone shreds over, dividing equally over the 4 bottoms. Place sausage halves on top of cheese and place roll tops over. Serve hot pepper sauce on the side, if you desire.
Makes 4 servings.
*Tip: Sausages can also be heated on a hot grill, if desired.
