Easy Grilled Sausage and Peppers Recipe

My Philly husband loves sausage and peppers. I’ve adapted the traditional recipe so that it can be the centerpiece of our backyard barbecues. The peppers and onions steam perfectly in foil packs and grilling the sausage bring out the smoky flavor of the hot Italian sausage. We have the perfect sausage and peppers, now if I could just get Cacia’s or Sarcone’s rolls in Florida…

Ingredients

  • 2 lbs Hot Italian Sausage - 8 sausages
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • 2 T olive oil
  • 1 cups red bell pepper
  • 2 cups green bell pepper
  • 1 cup yellow or orange bell pepper
  • 2 cups vidalia onion
  • 8 hoagie rolls - If you are in Philly, pick your favorite, for the rest of us buy the best deli or bakery roll you can find.

Instructions

  • Heat grill to about 450 degrees F

Peppers and onions

  • Slice pepper and onions into strips.  Season with salt and pepper to taste and toss with olive oil.
  • Wrap peppers and onions in a double layer of heavy duty tin foil.  You'll probably need to create 2 or 3 packets.
  • Fold and seal foil into packets.
  • Cook foil packets on direct heat for 15 to 20 minutes, flipping several times.
  • Serve immediately with Sausages

Grilled Hot Italian Sausage

  • Place sausage directly on grates and grill until the sausage casing begins to crisp on the outside.
  • Remove sausage to a cutting board and butterfly the sausage.
  • Return the sausage to the grill butterflied inside of the sausage face down on the grill.
  • Cook until the inside of the sausage begins to char.
  • Remove from grill and immediately serve on a long roll with peppers and onions.

Notes

 
If you are in Philly, pick your favorite Italian bakery roll, for the rest of us buy the best deli or bakery roll you can find. 
The rolls to serve the sausage and peppers on is always our biggest problem.  Florida just doesn't have bakeries like South Philly, and even our Italian delis bread is just ok.  You want a roll that has is crusty on the outside and super tender on the inside.
