Dinner on A Bun

Recipe of the Month: Dinner on A Bun (serves 2)


  • 2 Kaiser rolls or hamburger buns
  • 1 handful of radish sprouts (optional)
  • 2 medium yellow potatoes peeled and sliced paper thin
  • 6 cups shredded cabbage
  • 3 radishes chopped
  • 1 carrot julienned
  • 1 small cucumber chopped
  • 1 sm. Red onion thinly sliced
  • 2 andouille sausages (sweet Italian or whatever is your favorite)
  • 2 T. mayo
  • 2T red wine vinegar
  • 2 T sweet and tart mustard (I used old cape cod cranberry mustard) Use your favorite – sweet and tart, sweet and hot
  • 2 T. olive oil
  • 2 T. butter
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 teaspoons Sea salt


  • Melt the butter and add the minced garlic.
  • Add the carrot, radishes, onion, and cucumber to the shredded cabbage.
  • Mix the mayo, red wine vinegar, and mustard. Pour over the cabbage mixture and toss well.
  • Put in the fridge to cool.
  • Turn on the grill.
  • Toss the potato slices with the olive oil and salt.
  • Put in a grill pan to grill or broil in the oven. Keep an eye on them so they don’t burn.
  • Grill the sausage. When done slice open (in half lengthwise) so it will lay flat on the bun.
  • Butter the bun slices and put on the grill just long enough to get char marks – don’t let it get dry and crusty.
  • Assemble the sandwich.
  • Sprinkle sprouts on bun.
  • Put the potato slices on top of the sprouts.
  • Top that with the slaw.
  • Then put the sausage on top of the slaw.
  • Put the top bun half and top – and here’s dinner!


I personally like my sandwich with a beer. You can use grilled chicken or a white fish instead of the sausage if you like. Great Sunday night dinner!
