"These delicious grilled sausage sandwiches are my attempt to duplicate the ones I ate when I was growing up and attended Italian street festivals in the North End of Boston. They come together really quickly, and make a great summer lunch. Choose hot or mild sausages as you prefer."

  1. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat. Lightly oil grate, and set 4 inches from the heat.
  2. Pierce the sausages in a few places with a fork, and set aside. Slice off the bottoms of the onion halves so they will sit flat on the grill. Brush the bell pepper and onion halves with 2 teaspoons of olive oil.
  3. Place the sausages, onions, and peppers on the preheated grill. Cook and turn the sausages until well browned and juices run clear. Cook vegetables until tender and peppers are slightly charred. Remove vegetables and sausages from the grill.
  4. Place the peppers in a paper bag, close, and cool slightly. Remove and discard the charred skin from the peppers; slice peppers into strips. Slice the onion halves. Place salt and pepper to taste, and 1 tablespoon olive oil in a bowl. Add the peppers and onions, and toss until evenly coated. To serve, place sausages in sandwich rolls, and top with the pepper and onion mixture.

This recipe was great! I split the sausages & grilled them on my indoor grill. I cooked the onions & green peppers in a skillet, until carmelized. I then put the grilled sausage on top of a whea...

These were wonderful! I used sweet Italian sausage instead of the hot. I grilled them on my (very small)George Foreman, so we had to cook the onions first, then the peppers, then the sausage in ...

Great! Hubby butterlied sausages before he grilled them. We seasoned the veggies with a little garlic powder and grill seasoning when we took them off the grill. So easy but tasty!
