State Fair Sausage, Peppers, and Onions

(4 Votes)
25 Min

If you've ever been to a county or state fair, you know the incomparable smell of sausage, peppers, and onions on the grill. Want to relive those great smells and tastes right at home?

What You'll Need:
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 pound hot or sweet Italian sausage, cut into quarters
  • 3 medium to large green or red bell peppers, cleaned, then sliced into 1/2-inch strips
  • 1 large onion, cut into 1/4-inch slices
  • 4 hoagie or submarine rolls, split open
What To Do:
  1. Preheat the grill to medium-high heat.

  2. Pour the oil into a disposable 9" x 13" aluminum pan. Place the sausage in the center of the pan. Place the peppers and onions over and around the sausage; cover the pan with aluminum foil and place the pan on the grill. Close the grill cover and grill for 20 minutes, tossing occasionally.

  3. Remove just the sausage from the pan and place it directly on the grill; cook it for 5 minutes on each side, to brown the outsides.

  4. Remove the sausage from the grill and place it on the rolls; top with the peppers and onions and serve immediately.

To add more color to your sandwiches, use a combination of red and green bell peppers.

All the local fairs around me do not have hot sausage sandwiches. They have to be PC and not get one too spicy for this generation of sue happy people.As for them at home,the sweat beads up on my forehead between the first and second bite. I wouldnt change a thing in your recipe

How petty. Your comment adds nothing but to show how small minded you are. Comment on the recipe, please.

Delicious!!Just like the old days in my hometown. this has always been a big hit!

Love these. Always get them at the carnival and they bring back fond memories of when my grampa would take me to the baseball games. Definetly a summer must have.

I have done something like this before. I added tomatoes and the end till heated. turns out great. I have a flat gill on my outside grill and just cook them uncovered.
