Grilled Sausages and Polenta with Marinated Peppers

Here is a weeknight barbecue meal that’s a quick and easy version of sausage and peppers. We had this last week in the Berkshires and it couldn’t have been quicker or easier.  Plus it was quite tasty!

The precooked polenta in a tube cooks up nicely in a frying pan so it was not a surprise that it was good on the grill.

Make sure to let the onions marinate for at least 15 minutes.

Overall this was an easy summer weeknight meal!

Grilled Sausages and Polenta With Marinated Peppers
Real Simple

  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for the grill
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • kosher salt and black pepper
  • 1 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1 small red onion, thinly sliced
  • 8 small links Italian sausage (about 1 1/2 pounds total)
  • 1 pound store-bought cooked polenta, sliced into thick rounds
Heat grill to medium-high. In a large bowl, whisk together the lime juice, oil, honey, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper until the honey is dissolved. Add the bell pepper and onion and let sit, tossing occasionally, for 15 minutes.
Meanwhile, grill the sausages, turning occasionally, until charred and cooked through, 10 to 12 minutes. During the last 6 minutes of cooking, oil the grill and add the polenta. Grill until charred and heated through, 2 to 3 minutes per side.
Serve with the sausages and vegetables.
