I want these on football days with giant piles of salty chips and freezing ice-cold Shiner beer. Voilà! Perfect game-day food.
Fun fact: When my eldest son was in college, he texted me the following: “Do I have what I need to make rice?” (Bless.) I texted back, “All you really need is rice, twice that amount of liquid, and voilà!” He replied, “I don’t have any voilà. I don’t even know what that is.” Jesus, take the wheel.
Reader, look at the separate words in the title of this recipe: Garlic. Butter. Italian. Sausage. Subs. These should comprise the five levels of the new food pyramid. Remember how the bottom level used to be “grains” and we were instructed to eat at least eight servings a day? Nutritionists were like, “Greens? Half an ounce. Processed bread? A loaf a day.” This probably explains my sandwich obsession. I was brainwashed by the Wonder Bread lobby.
