Grilled Sausage, Onion, and Pepper Sandwiches

The balsamic vinegar adds a sweetness that pairs nicely with Italian spices in the sausage. This recipe calls for a lot of onions; be sure to stir them frequently in the pan so they cook evenly. The filling for the sandwich is also good over egg noodles.
