Sausage Dogs

We love sausages, we love to grill, we love grilled peppers and onions…this is our kind of recipe!  We have a large grill “plancha” or plate that makes this recipe even easier…I mixed the oil, vinegar, sugar and seasonings in a plastic bag and then added the peppers and onions.  I mixed them up and poured them out on the plancha to cook while the sausages grilled.  If you don’t have a plancha, try cooking the vegetables in a cast iron skillet right on your grill.
With homemade buns and home-canned molasses baked beans and a crisp chopped salad we had a delicious, quick lunch.  I usually have buns ready in the freezer, and I can beans in the winter for the summer grilling season.

  1. Will have to try this for something different. I've been making the attached recipe off & on for about a year. I recently made a hot dish/stir fry by doing the basic steps but without the beer, slicing the brats and adding hash browns (shredded or chunks) to it. It was really good! Then yesterday I did something similar in the crock pot with country pork ribs and quartered potatoes with a little brown sugar and butter added. THAT was really good too! It's so much fun to create good meals!
