Sausage and Peppers

It’s getting to be the end of Summer and the peppers are at their prime. This is an easy one-dish cook that melds the sweetness of the peppers, the spiciness of the sausages, and smokeyness of the grill.

  • 1 large onion, sliced
  • 1 clove garlic, chopped
  • 6 cups mixed sweet peppers (bell, Hungarian, banana…) sliced into strips
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon Balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon kosher salt
  • A couple of grinds of fresh black pepper
  • 9-12 small sweet or hot Italian sausages

Combine all the veggies with the olive oil and vinegar, then season with salt and pepper. Set your grill up for a direct cook over medium heat (350°F).

Using a veggie pan like this Weber Grill Pan, grill the sausage and peppers together, turning often. Cook for 10-15 minutes, or until the sausages are done and the peppers are brown and soft.  If you find that the peppers are cooking too quickly, remove them to a plate and hold them until the sausages catch up.
