Sausage sandwiches in their most basic forms can be and very often are absolutely delicious. The nature of sausage sandwiches means however that you have a virtually endless number of opportunities to vary the combination and take it to new levels of scrumptiousness.

The three basic ways of doing this are to vary the types of sausage used in the sandwich, vary the type of bread you use and vary the nature of the accompaniments or condiments included in the sandwich. The recipes on this page focus on using naan breads as an alternative to traditional, as well as spicing up the sausages and/or the additional inclusions.

Here's a sneak peek of what you'll find in this article:

Choosing Naan Breads for Sandwiches

There are two basic choices when selecting naan breads to make a naan bread sandwich and which one you go for is down to availability and personal preference.

You can either use one large/standard naan bread and halve it or use two mini naan breads. In both instances, the heating guidelines on the pack should be followed prior to assembling the sandwich.

Additionally, you can, of course, use different flavoured naan breads, with garlic and coriander (cilantro) being a very popular choice.

One naan bread sandwich

Ingredients

  • 4 beef sausages
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon each of garam masala and medium curry powder
  • 1 tablespoon spicy chilli tomato ketchup, (alternatively 1 teaspoon hot chilli powder)
  • 1 clove of garlic, peeled and grated
  • 1 (8 ounce can) chopped tomatoes in tomato juice
  • 3 ounces basmati rice
  • 1 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon freshly chopped coriander/cilantro
  • 1 naan bread
  • Salt and pepper

Instructions

  1. Pour the oil in to a medium to large pot or saucepan. Add the curry powder, garam masala and garlic and stir fry over a medium heat for a couple of minutes to fry off the spices.
  2. The ketchup and tomatoes go in to the pot next to be brought to a simmer. The sausages should each be pricked a couple of times and added to the pot to simmer (covered) for a further twenty minutes.
  3. The rice should be washed through a sieve and added to a pot of simmering, salted water along with the turmeric to simmer for ten minutes. It should then be drained and returned to the pot, at which point the chopped coriander/cilantro should be stirred through.
  4. Heat the naan bread per the instructions on the pack and arrange the rice in the form of a bed on a serving plate. Cut the naan in half across the way and lay the larger part on the bed of rice.
  5. Use a pair of cooking tongs to lift the sausages from the pot on to the bottom piece of naan before spooning over some sauce. Lay the top part of the naan bread in place to serve.

  • 5 skinless pork sausages

This is by far the simplest and most straightforward recipe on this page, especially when it is prepared as a means of using up leftover spiced onions and they are not specially made for the sandwich.

  1. Fry the sausages gently in the oil for about ten minutes or until done, turning them frequently.
  2. Heat the naan bread and half across the way. Lay the sausages on the wide half, spoon the spiced onions over the top and add the second half of the naan.

Spicy Lorne Sausage Naan Bread Sandwiches

While there is every chance that you will not have access to this type of sausage, you could make your own or alternatively, simply use ordinary sausages or a basic burger patty instead.

Thanks vickiholder. I hope you enjoy what you come up with. Perhaps you could make something similar to the Lorne from ground beef/pork?

Vicki Holder from The beautiful Ouachita Mtns. in Arkansas on May 08, 2015:

These sound delicious. I adore curry and want to try some new combinations. I'll have to figure out a good substitute for the Lorne sausage though since not available in rural Arkansas.
