Vidalia Onions and Peppers and Sausages - 52 Pork and Side Dishes from the Grill

This is one of those dishes that is fantastic, but is so simple it is rarely served for anything except a cook's treat.

Have you ever watched those cooking interview shows?  The ones where the host will ask the chef what their favorite meal is?  More often than not the cook will mention something very simple.  Something that brings out the best flavors of only a couple of ingredients.  Something with a simple cooking method and Something generally unexpected by the host and audience.

That's what this dish is for me.  Sausages cooked over an open flame, beautifully charred on the outside and just cooked through moist tender and delicious on the inside (trusting the sausages to be seasoned when you buy them).  The vegetables (Simple Onions and Bell peppers) are rough diced r sliced to be bite size and then coated with Olive Oil so the will grill nicely.  Once again, one of those handy dandy grill pans, the ones with all the holes in the bottom, makes cooking this incredibly fast, easy and efficient.

I make these whenever I can find those sweet Vidalia Onions

This dish goes from planning to fully cooked and served in about 15 minutes.

And is just about my perfect meal.  Simple, fast and really does make these ingredients taste as good as it gets!!!

Is this too easy to justify a blog post???
