Just like the B.L.T., this sandwich is simple and easy. A sausage, lettuce and tomato sandwich. I didn't have any bacon on hand, so I used the next best thing. I still had that Hickory Farm's sausage. Well, actually a nub of it. But the nub still seemed big. Then I remember that I had opened a can of vienna sausages the other day. I was planning to use if for something, but I never did end up making whatever I had planned. I can't even remember why I wanted to use it in the first place.
I grew up with vienna sausages as with spam. My mom sometimes puts it in her spaghetti sauce rather than hot dog as many Filipinos households do. That's our version of doing meatballs. For some odd reason, as I began to slice the sausages in half, I found myself just chopping them to bits. I don't know why I did that, but I just did. It still worked out in the end. I just found it completely random act on my part. Don't worry didn't chop the tomato or lettuce. I used some dijon mustard for the base on the bread for give the sandwich a little twang and topped it with some swiss cheese. I put in the broiler for 1-2 min to let the cheese melt.
Anyway...a delicious and a quick meal. Only takes minutes to make. Perfect for those busy days. Sometimes canned meats don't have to be scary.
S.L.T (Sausage, Lettuce, Tomato)
2 sandwich Loaves (sliced open)
1 small can vienna sausage (chopped or sliced into halves)
2 small tomato (sliced)
a few pieces of romaine lettuce.
2 sandwich slices of swiss cheese (halved)
Cook the vienna sausage in the skillet. Do not use any oil as the sausage will cook in its own fats. You just want to heat it up until they start to brown.
Putting it together:
Spread some of the mustard on both sides of the bread. Top the bottom with lettuce and tomato, the with some of the sausage. Take two pieces of the halved cheese and place the top half of the bread.
You may melt the cheese in the broiler for 2 min or leave it as it is.
Serve as a warm or cold sandwich.
