Cooking Steps

  1. Prepare Ingredients

    Prepare Ingredients

    Slice pretzel rolls open horizontally, splitting partway but leaving 1 edge intact. Rinse all produce. Finely chop parsley leaves, discarding stems. Trim and discard ends of green beans (try lining them up together to trim all at once). Halve bell pepper lengthwise, discarding seeds and stem, then cut lengthwise again into ¼-inch strips. Halve lemon. Mince garlic.

  2. Toast Rolls and Make Creamy Mustard

    Toast Rolls and Make Creamy Mustard

    Place rolls cut-side down in a large pan over medium heat. Toast until light golden and warmed through, 2-3 minutes. Transfer rolls to serving plates, reserving pan for sautéing peppers. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, whisk together mustard, mayonnaise, apple cider vinegar, ⅛ teaspoon salt, and black pepper as desired until fully combined. Set aside until ready to serve.

  3. Sauté Pepper

    Sauté Pepper

    Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in pan from rolls over medium-high heat. When oil is shimmering, add bell pepper and season with ⅛ teaspoon salt and black pepper as desired. Sauté, stirring frequently, until softened and beginning to char, 5-7 minutes. Transfer bell pepper to a large plate and set aside. Wipe pan clean and return to medium-high heat with another 1 tablespoon olive oil.

  4. Sear Sausages

    Sear Sausages

    When oil is shimmering, add sausages and sear, flipping occasionally, until golden on all sides, about 5 minutes total. Transfer to cutting board and slice open, splitting partway but leaving 1 edge intact. Return split sausages to pan cut-side down, and place a medium heavy pan or plate on top to flatten. Continue searing until cooked through and no longer pink, 2-3 minutes more. Transfer to plate with bell pepper.

  5. Sauté Green Beans

    Sauté Green Beans

    While sausages sear, heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a medium pan over medium-high heat. When oil is shimmering, add green beans and sauté, stirring, until slightly charred, 4-5 minutes. Stir in parsley and garlic until fragrant, 1 minute more. Remove pan from heat and squeeze over juice of ½ lemon. Season with ¼ teaspoon salt and black pepper as desired, then divide between serving plates with rolls.
