Sure you could have a hotdog. Or you could go for the extra point and opt for a sausage sandwich instead. Sliced fresh onions and peppers are lightly grilled alongside spicy sausage for an all American snack that bites back.

Ingredients

  • Olive oil
  • 6 Spicy sausages
  • 2 Bell peppers, sliced
  • 2 Onions, sliced
  • 6 Ball Park hot dog buns
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

Directions

Coat grill with olive oil or nonstick cooking spray. Place sausages on grill and cook on medium/high heat, turning each sausage once until cooked through, about 12 minutes total. In the meantime, place veggies on grill and cook until soft and slightly charred. If you’re using a griddle, sauté veggies until cooked down.

Toast Ball Park buns and set aside.

Season veggies with salt and pepper and portion into 6 servings. Place each serving into a Ball Park hot dog bun and add a sausage to each bun. Serve with mustard if desired.

Sausage and Pepper Shopping Tip

Try to use fresh sausage whenever you can; they are full of flavor and don't have the high level of preservatives and nitrates that packaged sausage has.

Sausage and Pepper Cooking Tip

Fresh sausage should be cooked to an internal temperature of 160 degrees.
