My husband and his Jersey friends taught me about this combination of ingredients There once was a place along the Boardwalk that serves this up on Italian Rolls and they call it Boardwalk Sausage. To create the sandwich simply leave sausages whole and do not mix the potatoes with other ingredients. Place a sausage in an Italian roll and top with your choice of vegetables, potatoes and condiments
