It’s grill season! Can I get a collective “YEAH”!
We don’t grill too much during the winter. It’s too cold and dark and the grill is usually buried in snow. But the sun is poking through more and it is sticking around much later every day, so we are grilling on a regular basis again. One of our favorite grilled sandwiches is Italian Sausages and we love it with grilled peppers and onions. I make this at least once a week in the summer.
Grilled Sausages with Peppers and Onions Hobo Pack
- 1 lb Italian sausage links
- 1 red pepper, cored, slices into thin strips
- 1 medium onion, sliced thin. We prefer red onion, however on this day I only had a yellow onion on hand.
- olive oil, salt, pepper
Create a hobo pack by placing the peppers and onions in the center of a piece of foil, large enough to fold up into a packet. Before folding up the packet, drizzle the peppers and onions with about 1 Tbsp. olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper, about 1/4 tsp each. Fold the packet up tightly, so juices don’t drain out when you flip the packet while grilling. See picture of packet on the grill.
Grill sausage over medium-high heat about 15-20 minutes, turning halfway, until sausage is cooked through. I grilled turkey sausage and the rule is to cook until it reaches 165 degrees inside. Refer to the sausage packaging for cooking guidelines. Flip the hobo pack when you turn the sausage.
Serve the sausages, peppers and onions on a really fresh roll with your favorite toppings. I love mine with lots of mustard. Enjoy and Happy Grilling!
