Grilled Italian Sausage and Vegetables
This delicious entrée combines fresh, mouthwatering vegetables and Isernio’s famous fresh chicken sausage, pork Italian sausage, chorizo and more. Check out these great tips from Frank himself:
Be sure and get your grill hot enough, turn it up as high is it will go with the lid closed. Once your grill is warm, place peppers inside and again close the lid. Allow your peppers to cook for 7 minutes before rotating. Repeat this 2 more times for a total of 21 minutes. Finally, place your peppers in a paper sack and allow them to continue steaming.
The key to grilling the perfect pork or chicken sausage is precooking. In order to do this you will need to place your fresh chicken sausage, pork sausage, or other variety in boiling water; off the heat for 7 minutes. This can even be done a day ahead of time. Brush each sausage with olive oil before placing on the grill. Close the lid and allow them to cook for 5 minutes. You now have delicious, perfectly grilled sausage without messy explosions or punctures that allow flavor to escape.
