  • 1 lb. smoked bratwurst with cheddar cheese or smoked sausage with cheddar cheese, cut into 3/4 inch pieces
  • 1 medium sweet onion, sliced (such as a Vidalia, Maui, or Walla Walla)
  • 1/2 large red bell pepper, seeded, cut into 1 1/2 inch strips
  • 2 jalapeno peppers, stems removed, seeded, chopped
  • 1 bottle chili sauce (12 oz. size)
  • 1 Tbsp. apple cider vinegar
  • 3 Tbsp. water
  • 2 tsp. spicy brown mustard
  • 1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/3 cup sweet relish
  • 8 hoagie hard rolls, split
  • 1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese


In a small bowl, mix together garlic powder and cayenne and sprinkle chicken pieces with the mixture. In a large skillet, stir-fry seasoned chicken in 2 Tbsp. olive oil about 4-5 minutes or until no longer pink. Drain and remove from pan. Add bratwurst or smoked sausage to skillet and brown, about 4 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from pan. Add remaining 1 Tbsp. olive oil to skillet and saute onion, red bell pepper and jalapenos until tender and onions begin to become translucent, about 5 minutes.


Add chicken and bratwurst back to the skillet. Stir in chili sauce, vinegar, water, mustard, Worcestershire sauce and relish. Cover and simmer 10-12 minutes. Pile mixture onto hoagie hard rolls. Top each sandwich with 2 Tbsp. shredded cheese. Makes 8 servings.
