Grilled Italian Sausage with Peppers and Onions


Italian sausage, bell peppers, and onions made easy on the grill. You can also serve the sausage in hot dog buns and finely chop the veggies once grilled as a "relish." I like to add a squirt of mustard when I serve them this way.

5 sausages


  • 1 red bell pepper, cut into strips

  • 1 green bell pepper, cut into strips

  • 1 yellow bell pepper, cut into strips

  • 1 small white onion, sliced into petals

  • 1 small red onion, sliced into petals

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • ½ teaspoon dried Italian seasoning

  • 1 pinch salt and ground black pepper to taste

  • 5 (4 ounce) links hot Italian sausage links


  1. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat and lightly oil the grate.

  2. Combine bell peppers and onions in a large bowl. Add olive oil, Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper. Stir to combine. Using a toothpick, poke 4 holes into each sausage to prevent them from exploding on the grill.

  3. Place vegetables in a grill basket and cook for 2 minutes. Add sausage directly to the grate and grill for 4 minutes. Flip sausage over, stir vegetables, and grill for 4 minutes more.

Cook's Note:

Sweet Italian and mild Italian sausage also work well with this recipe, so use what you prefer.
