Sausage Heros

Prep: 20 minutes • Grill: 20 minutes • Serves: 8


1 package (12 ounces) cherry tomatoes
4 (10-inch) bamboo skewers
Schnucks nonstick cooking spray
2 medium yellow onions, each cut in half, then sliced
3 green and/or red bell peppers, sliced
8 Schnucks Select sweet or hot Italian sausage and/or salsiccia links (about 2 pounds)
4 garlic cloves, crushed with press
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
3/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
8 Schnucks Select Deli buns
1 cup Schnucks finely shredded Italian cheese blend

1. Prepare outdoor grill for direct grilling over medium heat. Thread tomatoes onto skewers. Cut one 30 x 18-inch sheet heavy-duty aluminum foil; spray foil with nonstick cooking spray. Spread onions on 1 side of foil, top with peppers. Fold foil over peppers; fold edges of foil several times to seal well.

2. Place foil packet on one side of grill. Place tomato skewers next to foil packet. Cook tomato skewers 3 to 4 minutes, turning occasionally, or just until tomatoes soften. Transfer tomatoes to rimmed baking pan. Place sausages on grill next to foil packet. Cover grill and cook vegetables in foil packet 17 minutes; cook sausages 8 to 10 minutes or until internal temperature of sausages reaches 155°F, turning once. Transfer sausages and foil packet to rimmed baking pan.

3. Remove tomatoes from skewers and add to large bowl. With kitchen shears, cut an X in top of foil packet to let steam escape, then carefully pull back foil to open. Pour onions and bell peppers into bowl with tomatoes. In cup, mix garlic, vinegar, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper; pour over vegetables and gently toss to combine.

4. Place sausages in buns. Spoon vegetable mixture over sausages; sprinkle each sandwich with 2 tablespoons cheese blend.
