Linguica is a Portuguese sausage--you can substitute Spanish-style chorizo or kielbasa. Leave the root end intact on the onions so they don't fall apart as they cook.

3 cups water
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon sweet paprika
2 teaspoons white vinegar
1/2 teaspoon ground red pepper
1 (14-ounce) can fat-free, lower-sodium chicken broth
2 bay leaves
16 small red and yellow potatoes, halved lengthwise (about 18 ounces)
8 small boiling onions, peeled (root end left intact)
Cooking spray
4 ounces linguica sausage, diced
1 tablespoon chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt


1. Remove grill rack, and set aside. Prepare grill for indirect grilling, heating one side to medium-high and leaving one side with no heat. Place grill rack on grill.

2. Combine 3 cups water, Dijon mustard, and the next 5 ingredients (through bay leaves) in a large saucepan. Bring to a boil, and cook for 2 minutes. Add potatoes and onions; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, and simmer for 12 minutes. Remove from heat, and let stand for 10 minutes in cooking liquid; drain. Cut onions in half.

3. Pierce the bottom of a disposable aluminum foil pan several times with the tip of a knife. Place the potatoes and onions in pan, and coat with cooking spray. Place pan on grill rack over unheated side of grill; cover grill, and cook for 25 minutes or until lightly browned.

4. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add sausage, and sauté for 4 minutes or until lightly browned. Combine sausage, potato mixture, parsley, and salt in a large bowl; toss gently.
