If you’re a meat lover looking for a juicy new dish to truly sink your teeth into, then there’s perhaps nothing better than a scrumptious, meaty hot dog drenched in a delectable sauce. Here’s your guide to making sausage and pepper hoagies with harissa mayo that will be sure to become your new favorite meal.


  • 1 pound sweet mini peppers
  • 1 sweet onion
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon harissa paste
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons sliced garlic
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 hoagie rolls
  • 4 4-ounce Italian sausages


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F. Line the sausages on a baking sheet and bake in the oven for about 15 minutes.
  2. While you wait for the sausages to cook, heat two tablespoons of oil in a skillet over medium heat. Cook onion for about 4 minutes until it browns. Increase the heat to medium-high and add peppers. Stir the garlic, oregano, and salt into the mix and cook for another minute.
  3. Put the pepper mixture in a medium bowl. Once ready, cut the sausages in half and place them in the skillet. Add the remaining oil and cook for another 3 to 4 minutes, until browned.
  4. In a small bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, harissa, and vinegar. Cut the hoagie rolls open lengthways and lather with the harissa mayo sauce. Add the sausages, stuff with the sausages and pepper mixture, and top up with more sauce before tucking in.
