For the final day of “Baseball Week” I wanted to dedicate the recipe to one of my favorite cities, one of the most famous sports venues in the world and one delicious dish!
While the “Fenway Frank” comes to a lot of peoples minds when thinking Fenway Park food, the real action is just outside of the park where street vendors line the sidewalks and are cranking out sausage and peppers like they’re going out of style!
Spicy Italian sausage is grilled up then topped with sauteed bell peppers. Simple, scrumptious.
- 1 tsp olive oil
- 1 red bell pepper (sliced)
- 1 green bell pepper (sliced)
- 1 red onion (sliced)
- 5 spicy Italian sausages
- 5 hot dog buns
Begin by heating up the olive oil in a skillet.
I took this opportunity to try my Longaberger Flameware Skillet on the grill. Worked perfectly and I didn’t have to run inside to check on my peppers, then run outside to check on the sausage. I just hung outside and enjoyed the beautiful weather we’ve been having in San Diego!
So back to the recipe, once the oil has heated up, add the peppers and onions to the skillet.
Cook for 5-7 minutes, then add the sausages to the grill and continue sautéing the peppers and onions.
Cook for 10 minutes, flipping the sausages half way through cooking.
Place the buns on the grill for 1-2 minutes, then remove everything from the grill, place the sausages in the buns and top with the peppers and onions.
Simple as that you have a scrumptious, authentic Fenway Park Sausage and Peppers without actually traveling to Boston. Although, I do highly recommend both traveling to Boston and checking out Fenway Park! It was on my bucket list this summer and it was an awesome experience!
♣ Vegetarian Option: Substitute Italian Style Vegetarian Sausage from Smart Sausages or Tofurky.
