Sweet sweet sausage and peppers, grilled to perfection on a toasty summer evening. Clean and classic without the sauce served with fresh, soft dinner rolls is just the way to go with this brand new twist on an Italian classic!
It’s true that when we think of sausage and peppers that we think of the spicy, slow cooked dish covered in delicious fruity noted red sauce, topped with grated parmesan cheese. As I do love that certain way of creating this dish, there is a more summery way of doing things, and while I am always very seasonal.. that was exactly the goal for todays dish!
This is a glorious bowl of deliciousness to serve at a party next to some crispy chicken cutlets with cocktail sauce, and a ginormous make your own burger bar! It’s a great idea to have multiple meats on hand, on display at any party that you’re planning no matter how big! People love options, and they adore when it looks like someone put a lot of effort into doing something. 🙂
You definitely can’t have sausage and peppers without the peppers of course, and some savory onion flavor.
- Cut three multi- colored bell peppers into quarters.
- Cut two large red onions into quarters without removing the root, so that they don’t fall apart while grilling.
Place the vegetables on a platter to easily carry out to the grill!
Drizzle the peppers and onions with really good olive oil, a dribble of red wine vinegar, a drink of honey, seasoned salt, fresh cracked black pepper, garlic powder, and chopped parsley.
Depending how much you’ll need, or want to make to have.. place your sweet sausage rings on the grill for 15 minutes on each side on medium heat.
All along the side of the sausage, you can go ahead and line up the veggies!
Make sure you are turning the vegetables over on every single side that they have because you won’t want them getting overly charred anywhere on it. Unless of course, you prefer it like that.
When the peppers get to this extent of this beautifulness, you will want to keep them warm, but not that they actually keep continuing the cooking process.
To keep the veggies hot and steamy while the sausage finishes cooking, move them all to the top rack of the grill. They will have heat to keep them at the temperature they are supposed to be at for serving without over cooking.
Caramelization on the sausage is exactly what you want, and make sure there is a lot of it! That’s going to give the dish an immense amount of flavor!
Just the sight of this looks like a beautiful evening summertime meal!
While everything is still steaming.. slice the sausage, onions, and peppers up, then mix them all together in a large serving bowl.
Sweet sausage and peppers, with none other than the delectable flavor of red onions that just simply can’t be missed in this dish! You can put a tong full of this mixture on a kaiser roll, or just place a portion on your plate, and enjoy! You might even go up for seconds.. or thirds! 😉
ENJOY DIAMONDS! I’ll be back with one of the last summer salads of the season!
