This idea hit me across the face about 45 minutes before dinner. I opened the fridge and saw peppers. Before I knew it I had a package of sausage in the microwave defrosting!
The husband said it was‚¶ you guessed it‚¶ ¬ ‚good‚. HOWEVER, he asked for seconds AND he said he would like me to make it again! So that‚s a good sign. :~P Even the toddler gobbled up a whole skewer!
- 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.
I served on a bed of instant whole grain flavored rice.
