We are not quit settled into our new place.  Boxes are everywhere.  The fridge is bare.  The pantry is smaller, so there is not much there.  And we are tried of take out.  On our way home from work we stopped by our favorite little neighborhood market, BiRite, with all intentions of picking up stuff for spring pea soup – they were out of peas.  Time to switch gears.  After wandering around, I found some of their housemade sausage and decided to make sandwiches.

A couple Superbowls back we made a warm red pepper slaw and served it with sausage, this is where I got the inspiration for this dish.  I was going to toss in thin slices of fennel but then remembered the lovely addition to the package, David of Earthy Delights sent us, Fennel Pollen;  this would be perfect, I was sure!   I slowly caramelized yellow onions with red peppers and seasoned with black Hawaiian Lava salt flakes and before serving, sprinkled the fennel pollen over it – WOW!  Not only does the pollen smell fantastic but it tastes amazing.

  3. This, to me, is heaven in a bun. Sausage and peppers should go into the food hall of fame. And if there isn’t one, there should be. Just for this.

    LOVE it!

  4. this is mana for me.
    I love the smell of this cooking, and the fennel is the best with this.

  5. Ummm, I go for a sausage sangwich right now. It’s almost dinner and I can’t decide.
