    bluemoon downunder's Note:

    My adaptation of one of several "sizzling sausages" recipes in this week's issue of the Australian magazine 'New Idea'. The cooking editor - Barbara Notrhwood - says "Embrace the great Aussie tradition! Throw a snag on the barbie this summer and whip up one of these tasty, budget-friendly meals". A snag BTW is an Australian slang term for a sausage. I'd certainly be interested to know if the term is used anywhere else in the world! This recipe she's costed as $A2.55 a serve. She includes "chips, to serve" which I've omitted. My other changes wouldn't make an appreciable difference to the costing. By any reckoning, a tasty, budget-conscious, 2009-savvy recipe.

    My Private Note


    Serves: 4


    Beef Sa ...

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      To make the Basil & Lemon Mayonnaise, place all the ingredients in a small bowl and stir until they are well-combined; set aside while you cook the sausages.
    2. 2
      Cook the sausages under a medium to hot grill, turning occasionally, until they have browned all over and are cooked right through, or if it's summer and you have a BBQ, bung them on the barbie (Aussie for "put them on the barbecue").
    3. 3
      Cut lengthways slits in the sausages, three-quarters of the way through; divide the chutney evenly among the sausages (in the slits) and sprinkle the grated cheese on top of the chutney.
    4. 4
      Return the sausages to the grill (or the barbie) and cook them for a further 2 minutes or until the cheese has melted.
    5. 5
      Cut the rolls lengthways in half, being careful not to cut them all the way through; spread the cut sides with the Basil & Lemon Mayonnaise; divide the tomato slices (and cucumber slices if you're using cucumber) between the rolls; add the optional salt and pepper (if using) on the tomato (and cucumber) slices, sausages and baby spinach leaves evenly between the rolls; and serve.

      Flavor is great, but this is a 10 napkin (literally) meal! I took the advice of another reviewer and left the chutney off. I put more basil in the mayo, but probably could have put way more lemon too. Nice change of pace from your normal hot dog.

      They were good, but I thought there was a tad too much lemon flavor. Made recipe as written, will probably make again, but cut down on the lemon. Made for 1-2-3 hit wonders.

      There is a lot going on in this sandwich. The sauce was delicious. I think next time I would leave out the tomato chutney, or use the chutney and not the sauce? Anyway, I will do the sauce again, maybe on a grilled grouper sandwich! Yum, can't wait! Thanks!
