  • 1
    Cut sausages almost in half crosswise, then in half lengthwise. In 12-inch skillet, heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium-high heat. Cook sausages in oil 5 to 7 minutes, turning occasionally, until golden brown. Remove from skillet; set aside.

    Meanwhile, in small bowl, combine pesto and mayonnaise. Brush one side of bread slices with remaining 2 tablespoons oil. Turn 4 bread slices, oiled side down; spread each with pesto-mayonnaise.
  • 3
    For each sandwich, top pesto-mayonnaise with 1 cheese slice, 2 tomato slices, 4 basil leaves, 1 cooked sausage and 1 bread slice, oiled side up. Heat same skillet or a griddle over medium-high heat. Cook sandwiches 3 to 5 minutes, turning once, until golden brown and cheese is melted.

Expert Tips

  • Cutting the sausages almost in half crosswise serves two purposes. First, they don’t curl up when cooked, so they will lay flat in the sandwiches. Second, because the sausages are basically still in one long piece, they won’t fall out of the bread when turning the sandwiches in the skillet.
