Grilled Bratwurst, Bell Peppers, Sweet Yellow Onions and Tomatoes

Grilled Brat's, peppers, onions, tomatoes and Home Fries
What are you cooking this Fourth of July weekend?
Doug-King of the Grill

How about; Grilled Bratwurst, bell peppers, tomatoes and onions with a side of roasted sweet potatoes. You can serve the Brat’s without a bun smothered with the grilled bell peppers, tomatoes and onions and a splash of spicy mustard, my hubby Doug prefers plain ordinary mustard. Your meal, your choice so jazz it up!

• 1 package Bratwurst, usually five Brat’s
• One bottle of dark beer, any kind; Guinness is our favorite
• 1 Sweet yellow onion peeled and sliced
• 2 large Bell Peppers, slice open, remove seeds and cut into quarters
• 2 large tomatoes slice into 8 pieces, Slice the vegetables thinner if you are going to serve your Bratwurst in a bun and smother with the grilled vegetables
• 1 to 2 Tablespoons Olive Oil or non-stick cooking spray
• ¼ tsp salt
• ¼ tsp pepper
• Heat the grill to medium heat
• Place the Bratwurst in a large pot, pour in the beer, bring to a boil them simmer for 15 to 20 minutes
• Drain the Bratwurst and discard the beer
• In a grilling pan toss in the bell peppers and onions, drizzle with olive oil, salt and pepper. Tomatoes cook very quickly so I add them to the grilling pan when the peppers and onions are cooked
• Set the grilling pan and Bratwurst on the grill
• Over medium heat grill the bratwurst for about 4 or 5 or until brown and the vegetables until they are soft
• Remove the grilled vegetables and toss in the tomatoes
– Be Careful not to burn yourself when you remove the grilling pan!

 Serve with home oven roasted sweet potatoes, potato salad or baked beans

Happy Independence Day USA!

Just cook something! Cheers! Kary~
