How to make The Slammer Jammer Sausage Sam'mich

There is a plethora of healthy recipes all over the internet, but very few about food that is fun, which celebrates the good taste, a bit O’Fat, or sugar adds to life. While I will be presenting many of the recipes I think qualify as fun, both to fix and to eat. I feel obligated to say that they should not be anybodies daily fare. Just that in moderation, there is room in any diet for a bit of devilish pleasure. So read on and once in a while go ahead, be a devil…

The Slammer Jammer Sausage Sam’mich has many variations. The sausages that can be used to make it are many; I used Hillshire Farms Smoked Sausage for this iteration. There are two sole exceptions, sausages that should not be used are good old north side of Chicago Brats (would be sausage blasphemy), neither should it be prepared with proper English Bangers (if you don’t know what they are don’t worry I’m working on a recipe involving them). Any way, the Sam’mich starts with splitting three or four sausages longitudinally. While your George Foreman grill heats up. Once it’s up to operating temp set the timer to three minutes, lay the sausages with the flat side down on the grill and close the top. While it’s cooking move on to prep the Bun.

Step By Step Sam'mich Build

Now I have to say here that I am a plain eater. Don’t like Ketchup, Mustard, Mayo or relish of any sort. But what I do like is cheese. If the food is hot I like cheese on it. So I prep the bun with a slice on the top and one on the bottom. This will help contribute to what I call the shooter effect when the eatin’ starts.

Now that the bun is prepared and the sausages are ready, we get to the good part. Lay the first sausage on the lower bun half and fill the space created by the two halves laying side by side with your favorite filling; like Pub Cheese spread. If you like ketchup, mustard, etc this is a good place to use them.  Then layer the sausage with sausage but with the “V” at right angles to the first layer. Once again fill with your favorite topping. IF you like more than one use different toppings in each layer.

Now that your Slammer Jammer Sausage Sam’mich is ready, it should be noted it is best served with beer. The one pictured is served with Diet Coke, not because it’s diet, but because I like Diet Coke.

Now here is the fun part, when you pick up the Sam’mich make sure you get a tight squeeze hold on the back side of the bun, then when you bite it the toppings will shoot to the back of your mouth and you get a layering effect of the different tastes as they pass over your tongue. You’ll also get a good juice and grease run down your hands and forearms so have a napkin or a sleeve ready and Enjoy!!


Healthy Option: add a leaf of lettuce between the top of the bun and the cheese.
