Italian Sausages & Peppers

Italian Sausages and Peppers on the Grill

  • 2 Pounds Italian Sausage (Sweet or Hot)
  • 3 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 Red Bell Peppers roughly diced (1″)
  • 2 Green Bell Peppers roughly diced (1″)
  • 2 Yellow Bell Peppers roughly diced (1″)
  • 1 Onion thinly sliced
  • 3 Jalapenos diced
  • Salt
  • 1 Cup red wine
  • 1/2 Cup grated Romano, Parmesan or Pecorino

Fire up the grill to a medium high heat. Lightly oil the sausages and grill, turning until they have a good charr and cooked through – usually about 15 minutes or so. Move off of the flame.

With a flame friendly skillet – cast iron is perfect – let it heat up over the flame with the rest of the olive oil. When hot, add all of the veggies, and cook until soft – about 15 minutes.

Add the sausages in to the bottom of the skillet with the veggies. Add the wine and salt and simmer for about 5 minutes or until the wine has reduced. Add the cheese over the top.

Serve alone or with crusty bread and the rest of the wine.

This is football food. It is easy to prep in advance and transport for tailgating. A single pan makes for easy clean-up on those occasions and feel free to use brat or hoagie buns for simplicity.

This is also very flexible, swap beer for the wine, omit jalapeno peppers and use brats.
