Grilled Sausage with Fiery Peppers and Onions

Memorial Day is pretty much code for cooking outdoors with friends and family.

This simple recipe which serves six is the way to get the party started.

We’d like to say it’s because of your grill. Or maybe because you’ve chosen simple, fresh vegetables to accompany the meat. But, we’d be lying. The beauty of this recipe is the absolute burn mixed into every bite through just a few drops of Mad Dog.

Yes, it’s the Mad Dog 357 Silver Edition Hot Sauce that makes this sausage sandwich everything it is. And, it’s a lot.

The only thing that could maybe make this better is a couple of slices of cheese – but we didn’t want anything that would take away from the sweet silver burn of the veggies.

You might, but we didn’t. And we suggest giving it a go this way first.


2 tablespoons Olive oil
1 large Onion, thinly sliced
1 each Red bell pepper, thinly sliced
1 each Green bell pepper, thinly sliced
a few drops Mad Dog 357 Silver Edition Hot Sauce
Salt and pepper, to taste
6 each Italian sausages
6 each Hot dog buns



Preheat your grill.

Use a grill-safe frying pan or a skillet on your stovetop to heat the olive oil over medium-low heat. Add the onions and peppers and cook for 15-20 minutes until the veggies are soft, but not burnt. Sprinkle over the Mad Dog 357 Silver Edition Hot Sauce and stir well to distribute the heat throughout the veggies. Add a little salt and pepper, if desired. Remove from the heat and set aside.

Place the Italian sausages on the grill and cook for 2-3 minutes per side, until cooked through.

To serve, layer the sausages and the Mad Dog onions and peppers on the hot dog buns and serve with a cold beer.
