For a hearty one-dish meal, grill turkey sausage along with potato, onion, and colorful bell peppers.
1 pound red potatoes, quartered
5 garlic cloves
1/4 teaspoon salt, divided
1/4 teaspoon black pepper, divided
1 red onion, peeled and cut in half crosswise
4 red bell peppers, quartered
2 yellow bell peppers, quartered
5 (3-ounce) turkey Italian sausage links
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
1 tablespoon minced fresh oregano
How to Make It
Prepare grill. Coat the grill rack with cooking spray.
Cut an 18 x 12-inch sheet of heavy-duty foil. Place potatoes and garlic in center of foil; sprinkle with 1/8 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon black pepper. Fold foil over vegetables, tightly sealing edges. Add foil pouch to grill rack. Grill 30 minutes, turning foil pouch occasionally.
Lightly coat onion and bell peppers with cooking spray; sprinkle with 1/8 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon black pepper. Place onion on grill rack; grill 15 minutes. Turn onion over; add bell peppers and sausage. Grill an additional 15 minutes or until vegetables are tender and sausage is done; turn occasionally. Remove from grill.
Slice bell peppers into strips; coarsely chop onion. Combine bell peppers, onion, and potatoes in a large bowl. Squeeze garlic cloves into a small bowl to extract garlic pulp, and discard skins. Add parsley and oregano, tossing well. Slice grilled sausage links into 1/2-inch-thick slices, and serve with bell pepper mixture.
I liked this recipe very much, I rated it as "has potential" simply because I would change the recipe if I were to make it again. I used minced garlic in place of whole cloves and I used all red bell peppers(cheaper). Next time would substitute rosemary for the oregano...just a personal preference. The peppers did take a little longer than 15 minutes, the potatoes burned ever so slightly, and the sausage turned out a little dry. Will make again and serve to company with adjustments.
Wonderful flavor. I really like the way the potatoes are cooked. Used a raw, spicy italian turkey sausage from Whole Foods and it was perfect. Next time I will add red pepper flakes to the potatoes to add a little zing.
