Sausage & Pepper Skewers…

Sausage & Pepper Skewers

  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp white vinegar
  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1 large green bell pepper cut into large chunks
  • 1 large red pepper cut into large chunks
  • 2 thick slices of a large sweet onion cut into large chunks
  • 20oz (6) Italian turkey sausage links (I used Shady Brook Farms Hot) partially defrosted
  • 8 skewers sticks
  • non-stick cooking spray (for grill)

Preheat the grill.

Put the olive oil, vinegar and Italian seasoning in a large bowl. Add the pepper and onion chunks. Toss in the oil mixture to coat.

Cut each sausage links into 4-5 chunks. If you keep the sausage slightly frozen this process is much easier. Simple defrost frozen sausage for a few minutes in the microwave.

Toss the sausage chunks into with the pepper and onions

Skewer the sausage with the pepper and onion, alternating the three ingredients. I shot for 4 pieces of sausage per skewer.

Makes 8 skewers and I had enough veggies left over for a veggie one.

Lower the grill to medium cook for 20-25 minutes turning frequently.

Serve  on a bed of instant whole grain flavored rice.
