#SeriousSandwich: Chorizo and Sautéed Pepper Sandwich with Lemony Olive Oil-Cilantro Drizzle

This will be my last #SeriousSandwich post. The past few weeks have been quite an eye-opener, helping me find joy in cooking again instead of just baking away the days. But all good things must come to an end, and now it is time to move on to other projects.

Chorizo and Sautéed Pepper Sandwich with Lemony Olive Oil-Cilantro Drizzle

For #8, we’re back to main dish meals. Spicy sausage with peppers and onions, cilantro, lemon, paprika… so many flavors working together, somersaulting on your tongue and leaving you in wonder. This is no simple sandwich.

I deviated from the recipe slightly in preparing the drizzle in my mini food processor instead of a blender. It turns out the top had the perfect little opening for slowly adding the olive oil, resulting in a perfect emulsion. I also used hot Italian sausage instead of Chorizo–I had it on hand and figured it would be close enough. The end result was entirely delightful. Unfussy yet amazing, all in less than 30 minutes. This almost begs for Emeril’s trademark “BAM!”

Thank you, Morrow Cookbooks and Emeril Lagasse, for this experience. This cookbook has continually surprised and impressed me and I am fortunate to have had the opportunity to try it out. And thank you to my fellow #SeriousSandwich cookalong bloggers, who became a source of inspiration. Your enthusiasm made this all the more fun!
