Grilled Bratwurst with Peppers and Onions

 

1
tablespoon olive oil
1
red bell pepper, large, cut into 1/4-inch rings
1
yellow bell pepper, large, cut into 1/4-inch rings
1
large onion, cut into 1/4-inch slices
8
uncooked bratwurst
4
hard rolls, halved and buttered

 

 

Garnish:

 

  Dill pickles
  Mustard

 

 

Prepare grill.  In a bowl drizzle oil over pepper rings and onion slices, tossing to coat well.  Grill peppers and onions on an oiled rack set 5 to 6 inches over glowing coals 3 minutes on each side, or until tender.  Alternately, peppers and onions may be grilled in batches in a hot well-seasoned ridged grill pan over moderately-high heat.  Transfer peppers and onions to a bowl.

 

Grill bratwurst, turning them, until golden and just cooked through (about 160 degrees on an instant-read thermometer), 20 minutes.  Put a pair of brats, cut in half lengthwise and stacked on each roll.  Top with peppers, onions, pickles and mustard. 

 

Serves 4.
