Mario Batali's Sausage & Peppers
A Tailgating Favorite
Tailgating can be so much more than just burgers and wings. Try Mario Batali's recipe for sausage & peppers at your next game-day celebration.
Preheat a gas grill or prepare a fire in a charcoal grill.
Heat the oil in a large heavy pot over medium heat. Add the onions, bell peppers, and salt and pepper to taste, then add the rosemary sprig and cook, stirring often, until the onions and peppers are very tender, 18 to 20 minutes. Add the balsamic vinegar and check the seasoning. Transfer to a large serving platter and set aside.
Using a sharp knife tip, prick each sausage 7 or 8 times. Place them on the grill, cover, and cook, turning them occasionally with tongs and moving them around as necessary when flame-ups occur, until cooked through, 12 to 15 minutes.
While sausage is still hot, top with two overlapped slices of provolone.
Place sausages into toasted buns and top with peppers. Serve immediately.
