Smoked sausage sandwich with beer-braised onions, #SeriousSandwich

One of the delights of cooking from Emeril Lagasse's newest cookbook, "Emeril's Kicked-Up Sandwiches," (Morrow, $24.99), is finding little extras along the way that will kick up sandwiches and help out around the kitchen. For example, the beer-braised onions on this Smoked Sausage Sandwich with Beer-Braised Onions. These little morsels of joy would be fantastic alongside any kind of meat or sausage, without without the bun. As for the sandwich, the Muenster cheese and stone-ground mustard in conjunction with the sausage and onions really stacks up the flavor.

Just like Emeril's Caprese Sandwich is a taste of summer, this hearty sandwich is a taste of fall, perfect for tailgating, or maybe picnics at the pumpkin patch.
