Rach Eats Lunch: Extravagant Veggie Sausage Sandwich

Extravagant veggie sausage sandwich recipe budget student recipe

Normally, I scoff at the idea of something normal being revamped and fancy-fied. Take the humble fishfinger sandwich, for example - it's gone from I-dunno-what-to-have-for-tea to two-breaded-salmon-fingers-in-a-brioche-bun-for-a-tenner-please. I bet it tastes phenomenal, though. Still - this girl's got to eat healthy, get her five a day of fruit and veg in, save her pennies, and not feel like she's being deprived. Hey, as I'm writing this I've just eaten a slice of chocolate Swiss roll. Life's all about balance, after all. Speaking of fruit and veg, I keep eating peaches when they're either under or over ripe and end up wondering why I can't taste anything. What's that all about then?

This recipe in particular goes out to everyone who fancies something simple yet absolutely ridiculous for lunch, that also looks like you've spent ages on it. Yes, the tomato sauce-slash-salsa-slash-chutney thing is homemade, darling. (It's the tomato and chia seed chutney I used in my flatbread recipe, but you can also use Heinz if you like.) There's also a hit of melted cheese, roasted onions and tomatoes, and of course, the salad. Can't forget that. To further add to the extravagant-ness of the sandwich, I've put two, yes two, potato waffles inside it. This sandwich is officially a bit of a jawbreaker, but a delicious one at that. Try it and tell me what you think.

Extravagant Veggie Sausage Sandwich
This is the veggie sausage sandwich that other veggie sausage sandwiches want to be like.
  • 2 slices thick white or brown bread
  • 2 vegetarian sausages
  • 1 sliced salad tomato
  • 1 large handful lettuce
  • 1 1/2 slice mature cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 red onion, chopped
  • 1 1/2 salad tomatoes
  • 1/4 chopped red onion
  • 20ml cold water
  • 1 teaspoon vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 1 sprinkle paprika, garlic and salt
On a lined baking tray, add the sausages, sliced salad tomato, red onion and potato waffles. Pop it in the oven at 180℃ for 25-30 minutes until piping hot throughout.While it's cooking, butter the bread if that's what you'd like. I always go plain.At the 25 minute mark of cooking, remove a quarter of the red onion from the oven. In a blender, combine the tomato, red onion, chia, vinegar and spices, whizzing it on high power until completely smooth.On one slice of bread, add a dollop of the tomato sauce and pop the lettuce on top. Take out the vegetarian sausages, tomatoes and waffles, and slice the sausages into bitesized pieces. Add the sausages, waffles, onion and tomato to the sandwich. Add a bit more tomato sauce to the second slice of bread if desired.Put the cheese slice on top and return the open sandwich under the grill for a minute until it just slightly melts over the sandwich. You will drool a little at this bit. It is amazing. Remove from the oven and pop the second piece of bread on top. Slice the sandwich down the middle and eat it ASAP.

Oof. This is definitely a quick and tasty lunch. I'm drooling already, thinking about eating it again sometime. Might be a good weekend lunch, actually! How about you? Do you like a good sausage sandwich?
