When you bake the sausage it is not as greasy as frying it. After I bake it, then I pan fry it to incorporate the flavors of the peppers and onions.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

We loved the combination of sausage in this easy sausage and peppers recipe. The sweet, mild, and hot Italian sausage all add different layers to the dish. Peppers and onions cook down with the sausage and absorb all the flavors. Don't worry about not adding liquid while this simmers. There is plenty of oil and natural juices from the sausage. We served ours on a hoagie roll and really enjoyed the sandwich. This would be great for a large party (or even game day). Just put out a bowl of sausage and peppers and everyone can make their own sandwiches or enjoy the sausage and peppers alone.

  • Onions and peppers ready to be chopped.
    Chop up the peppers and onions.
  • Cutting the sausage into pieces.
    When the sausage is done cut it up.
  • Frying the onions, sausage, and peppers together.
    In a large frying pan mix up all of the ingredients.
  • Onions, sausage, and peppers simmering on the stove.
    Simmer for 20 to 30 minutes until peppers and onions are cooked. Presto!
