Texas Style White Bread
Bacon, Cooked
Caramelized Onions * see note
Sauteed Peppers
Colby Jack Cheese, sliced
butter for grilling
For the Sauce
1/2 Lb Mild Italian Sausage
1 Can Original Manwich
1 Clove of Garlic
1 Tablespoon Fresh Basil, chopped

In a large skillet, over medium high heat, add the Italian sausage and cook until browned and no longer raw, breaking up the meat as it cooks, about 6-10 minutes. Add the garlic and basil the last minute of cooking and cook for the remainder. Add the Manwich sauce and simmer for 10-15 minutes.

To Assemble
Spread a layer of Manwich Italian Sausage sauce over one slice of bread. Top with caramelized onions, peppers, and guacamole. On another slice, place the cheese and bacon. Press the two halves together and butter the top of the sandwich. Heat a grill over medium heat and place the sandwich butter side down. Butter the new top of the sandwich and place a lid or second skillet over the sandwich to trap in the heat. Cook for 2-3 minutes or until golden and flip the sandwich replacing the lid once you've turned it over. Cook until golden and the cheese is melted, serve immediately.

Caramelizing onions is not hard. Just slice the onion, drizzle a little olive oil or butter in a pan over medium heat, add the onions and turn down to low. Let the onions slowly cook until golden.
