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)

  • Beer bratwurst

  • Italian

  • Polish kielbasa

  • Chicken

  • Veggie!

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!

Grilled Sausage and Vegetables with Creamy Dill Dip

August 19, 2022

  • Serves:4
  • Prep Time: 10 min
  • Cook Time: 15 min
  • Calories:413

Ingredients

  • 1 pound vegetable of choice: bell peppers, jalapeños, zucchini, red onions, green onions or asparagus, mushrooms
  • 4 fully cooked or raw sausages
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • Sea salt and freshly cracked black pepper, to taste

Creamy Dill Dip

  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons fresh dill, plus more to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/3 cup finely grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • freshly cracked pepper to taste

Method

  1. Seed bell peppers and jalapeños and cut them into ½ inch wide slices, keeping their length. Cut the zucchini into 4-inches x 1/2-inch spears. Slice the red onion and mushrooms ⅓-inch thick. Grab your grill basket for your mushrooms and onions. Trim your asparagus.

  2. Heat a grill or grill pan to medium until smoking.

  3. Toss all of your prepared vegetables and the sausage with the olive oil, salt and pepper.

  4. Place the sausage on the grill. Cook time will depend on the sausage you are working with. If you are using raw sausage you can expect them to be fully cooked through in about 12-15 minutes, rotate often. If you are using fully cooked sausage, they will be warmed through and lightly charred in about 6-8 minutes, rotate often.

  5. Place the vegetables on the grill or in the grill basket. The vegetables should all be charred and tender in about 6-8 minutes. After laying the vegetables (including green onion) crosswise over the grill, close the lid and let them cook for 2-3 minutes. Flip and cook the other side. Keep doing this until they are tender, one to two more times.

  6. While the veggies and sausage are grilling, make the creamy dill sauce. In the base of a blender or food processor add all of the ingredients for the creamy dill dressing and blend until smooth. This dressing can be made up to 3 days ahead of time.

  7. Slice up the sausage and place them on a platter with the vegetables. Drizzle with the creamy dill dressing.
