Sausage Jalapeño Macaroni and Cheese

Sausage Jalapeno Macaroni and Cheese



One time my friends went on a “Macaroni and Cheese Crawl”. If you’re familiar with bar crawls, it’s the same thought, but instead of slamming beers and tequila shots, you head to the best restaurants for Mac and Cheese.

While I wasn’t able to make the crawl with them, I thought this was the best idea ever. Why, you ask?  Because Macaroni and Cheese is freaking awesome!!!!

Boston Sausage and Peppers

Grilled Italian Sausage and Peppers

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!

Grilled Sausage and Pepper Dogs

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!

Grilled Sausage and Pepper Dogs

Spicy Italian sausage is grilled up then topped with sauteed bell peppers. Simple, scrumptious.

Boston Sausage and Peppers Ingredients

Ingredients

  • 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.

Grilled Peppers and Onions in Longaberger Flameware

Cook for 5-7 minutes, then add the sausages to the grill and continue sautéing the peppers and onions.

Grilled Sausage and Peppers

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.

Grilled Italian Sausage and Peppers Recipe

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!

Boston Sausage and Peppers

♣ Vegetarian Option: Substitute Italian Style Vegetarian Sausage from Smart Sausages or Tofurky.

Authentic German Sausages in Where Else But… Oklahoma

In America, we do BBQ, in Italy they do Pizza and in Germany they do Sausages so when two German girls recommend a German restaurant, you eat there and you eat sausage!

My Dad used to work with these two girls and they would frequent Ingrid’s Kitchen for lunch. So of course while I was in town I met him for lunch to see what all the hype was about!

Since appearing on Diners, Drive Ins and Dives Ingrid’s has expanded their restaurant and their menu, but there’s one thing that’s remained the same and that is their homemade, authentic German sausages.

My Dad got his “usual” the #50 Smoked Sausage plate with sauerkraut, red cabbage and those amazing little German potatoes.

His Sausage was great but those potatoes were amazing, light and packed with flavor, I’d come back for a giant bowl of those alone!

I decided to try the Sausage Sandwich with ground veal and pork sausage, grilled onions and peppers.  The sausage was exactly how they described it, flavorful! The homemade bread was fresh and toasted perfectly with a light layer of peppers and onions.

I’ll be heading back to Ingrid’s for another dose of potato amazingness next time I’m in Oklahoma!

If you’d like to join in, visit Ingrid’s at 3701 N. Youngs, Oklahoma City, OK.
