How to cook Pasquale’s Stromboli Steak Sandwich

  • Cook the sausage: You will need to cook the sausage at medium heat for 2 to 3 minutes until it gets softened. However, whisk the sausage before cooking to cook it adequately in all directions. For our recipe, we are using the American breakfast sausage. But you can use any sausage for the recipe. Pour in some Italian seasoning and a few dehydrated onion and garlic powder pieces to give the sausage a unique taste. Also, use water in optimal amount. 
    When the sausage turns brownish, you can set it aside.

  • Prepare the sauce: Now, pour in the tomato sauce and paste in a separate bowl. Also, mix some Italian seasoning, garlic powder, oregano, red pepper flakes, and dehydrated onion into the saucy paste. Use the spin or whisk to blend the mixture. It is critical so that there’s no lump in the sauce.

  • Cut the bread into two halves: Now, cut the bread into two halves with the cooking knife carefully. Make sure you don’t cut your fingers during the process. Also, clean the knife before cutting the French bread.

  • Add the mozzarella cheese: The mozzarella cheese will act as the topping of the steam sandwich. Use all 8 slices of the cheese to arrange it over the sauces and American sausages right on the bread.

  •  Prepare the other half of the bread : When the sausage stuffed part of the bread is ready, you may prepare the other half of the bread. You may begin with spreading margarine on the bread evenly. After that, pour in some Parmesan cheese over the margarine on the bread. It will add a cheesy flavor that you will surely love.
     Prepare the other half of the bread
  • Oven bake the bread : Now, preheat your oven at 350°F. After that, insert both half of the bread that contains the cheesy topping, American sausage, and sauce inside the oven. Bake it for 30 minutes so that it is well cooked. Ensure that every portion of it is cooked well and nothing is undercooked.

  • Serve the steak sandwich : Now, you may add some oregano with the baked sandwich and serve it. You should serve it ASAP. Otherwise, it will cool down, and the cheese won’t taste good. You may eat it as a whole meal as the turnover is stuffed with beef sausage. Also, cut it into two halves before serving.
