Grilled Sausage, Onion, and Pepper Sandwiches

Yield 5 servings (serving size: 1 sandwich)
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.

  • 4 cups thinly sliced Oso Sweet or other sweet onion
  • 4 (4-ounce) turkey Italian sausage links, halved lengthwise
  • 3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 (7-ounce) bottle roasted red bell peppers, drained and thinly sliced
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 (8-ounce) French bread baguette, halved lengthwise
