Nutritional Facts

1 serving (1 each) equals 584 calories, 33 g fat (15 g saturated fat), 84 mg cholesterol, 1,401 mg sodium, 39 g carbohydrate, 2 g fiber, 31 g protein.

Directions

  1. In a small food processor, combine giardiniera and sugar; cover and process until blended. Make a lengthwise slit three-fourths of the way through each sausage to within 1/2 in. of each end. Fill with giardiniera mixture and cheese.
  2. Place sausages in buns; wrap individually in a double thickness of heavy-duty foil (about 12 in. x 10 in.). Grill, uncovered, over medium-hot heat for 8-10 minutes or until heated through and cheese is melted. Open foil carefully to allow steam to escape. Yield: 4 servings.
