Throw Some Sausages On The Grill
What kind of sausage should you use for grilling? First things first. Decide on whether you want to work with raw or fully cooked sausage. The only difference between the two is the time they spend on the grill. Next, who are you feeding and what flavors do you love? Try one of these recommended sausages or a combination thereof:
Andouille (or other smoked sausage)
What Are Some of the Best Vegetables To Grill?
Get creative when choosing a delicious mixture of veggies to serve with your sausages and creamy dill dip - there’s no wrong choice! We suggest colorful bell peppers, zucchini, red onions, green onions (yes they are delicious when grilled), mushrooms, asparagus, or jalapeños if you’re looking for a bit of heat! Simply toss your veggies with olive oil, salt and pepper, and place them in a grill basket or directly on the grill grates. Grill for 6 to 8 minutes with the grill top closed. Make sure to flip your veggies, and cook until they are tender and both sides are charred.

What Type of Grill Do I Need To Make Perfectly Grilled Sausages and Veggies?
If you’ve got a grill (even a grill pan!!) you can easily make this recipe. There are three main types of grills: propane, charcoal, and pellet. If you want to add an extra layer of smokiness to your sausages and veggies, try using a pellet grill. Cooking time may vary depending on your set-up, but use the recipes’ recommended grilling time as a starting point. Don’t have an outdoor grill? No problem - use a grill pan inside, to achieve the perfect grill marks!
