Well that didn’t take long… a new member has joined our family. He is a big, mean, green, grilling machine. I realized that my 10% off coupon was expiring in a few days, so we would be losing money if we didn’t hurry up and buy this grill. Since we dropped a few bucks on the grill today, we didn’t splurge for fancy meat. Instead, I thought I would see how the Hot Italian Sausages (from meal 17) would do on the grill. Not surprisingly, they did splendid. Paired with a crazy grilled potato salad it made for a pretty hot and wild meal!
Necessary ingredients: Hot Italian Sausages (or bratwurst if you are scared of hotness), buns, 1/3 bag of tiny golden potatoes, 1/2 bag of frozen edamame, about a cup of frozen corn, 1/4 jar of roasted red peppers, 1/4 chopped onion, 2 garlic cloves, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, dried rosemary, salt and pepper.
Wash and cut potatoes in bite-sized pieces. Heat grill. Prepare edamame according to package. Mix potatoes, edamame, and corn together. Chop onion and mince garlic. Add about 1/4 cup of olive oil and balsamic vinegar to onion and garlic. Add roasted red peppers. Stir in with other vegetables. Put the mixture on a large piece of foil. Sprinkle with salt, pepper, and rosemary. Put another piece of foil on top and fold up the sides. Grill on medium heat for about forty-five minutes. Flip every so often. Add the sausages towards the end of cooking. ***For a speed method, give the potatoes a jump-start in the microwave. Just heat them a bowl with a little water for about 5 minutes and then proceed with the recipe. I put a small drizzle of olive oil and balsamic over the crazy salad before serving. It was nice.
