Chicken sausage meets the flavors of French onion soup in this quick weeknight sandwich. The sausages are available in a variety of flavors, and while just about any flavor works for this panini, your sandwich will be especially good with apple or roasted garlic sausages.
Meanwhile, in another 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat, heat 1 Tbs. of the oil until hot. Add the sausages and cook until browned and heated through, 5 to 6 minutes. Cut in half lengthwise. Keep warm.
Heat a panini press. (Alternatively, heat a nonstick grill pan over medium heat.) Meanwhile, spread the mustard on the bread and assemble four sandwiches, distributing the onions, cheese, and sausage evenly among them.
Brush the outside of the sandwiches with the remaining 1 Tbs. oil. Cook them in the panini press until browned and crisp, 3 to 6 minutes. (If using a grill pan, put a heavy pan on top of the sandwiches and cook, flipping the sandwiches once.) Serve immediately.
Serve with Warm Potato Salad with Bacon, Apples & Rosemary on the side.
This was a great sandwich. I used Archer farms (yes, Target brand) chicken and garlic sausages. Added a little red wine to deglaze the onions. Sliced a little bit of Honey Crisp Apple on top. It was terrific and I want to have another!
This was very, very good. To the person who gave this a low rating because the sausage he/she bought wasn't good is not fair to the recipe. This sandwich rocks. It's up to you to get good sausage.
