Grilled Italian Sausage w/ Grilled Sweet Peppers

Grilled Italian Sausage w/ Grilled Sweet Peppers

Grilling season is in full effect in Florida. It’s something about this time of year that makes me resist wanting to turn on the oven and step outside and fire up the grill. Somehow I’ve managed to never grill Italian sausages, so the other day I decided I wanted to give it a try. Let me tell you–this is not only easy but in my opinion I think the only way I will ever cook Italian sausages again. The sausage skin is crispy and the inside is perfectly moist, and best of all it only takes 20 minutes to grill!

I mean, take a look at the crispy sausage above. I used hot Italian sausages, so to be honest they really did not need to be seasoned, and since they can be on the oily side I did not coat them in anything for fear that they were burn with any additional oil added.

I love recreating classic recipes and cooking them with a twist. This is the perfect recipe for entertaining this summer since its quick, easy, and your guest will surely be impressed with your creative take on this classic! I decided that I didn’t want a traditional starch for dinner so I made a quick batch of Italian white beans on the stove top. I’ll share that recipe tomorrow. It pairs wonderfully with the sausage and peppers. Or you can use it for a side dish for any meal you’d like!

Grilled Italian Sausage w/ Grilled Sweet Peppers

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes



  • 1 package of Hot Italian Sausage
  • 20 mini sweet peppers
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • salt & pepper to taste


  1. Preheat your grill on high heat and clean. Then reduce the heat to medium. While the grill is preheating toss sweet peppers with one tablespoon of olive oil and salt and pepper.
  2. Place sausage on one side of the grill and peppers on the other side of the grill. Grill for 20 minutes or until the internal temperature of the sausage reaches 165 degrees. *You'll want to turn the sausage and peppers two-to-three times during the cooking process to prevent burning. If peppers begin to char remove from heat.
