So we love sausage, onion and pepper subs in my family ! I thought it would be fun to make it into a skewer for a satisfying appetizer but the recipe is the same as I would make it for an actual sub. Hope you enjoy.
2lbs. Sausage links scored cases on
3 greenbell peppers sliced thickly cut in half
2 red bell peppers sliced thickly cut in half
3 large onions sliced
4 or 5 banana peppers, pepperoncini or your favorite Giardiniera chopped
3-6 tbsp. Juice from the jarred peppers
Place sausage in a large pan and cover in water so it that just covers the sausages.Let it boil. Once boiling adjust heat to medium, and turn sausages. Let it cook for about 10-12 minutes.
Meanwhile in another pan heat olive oil over medium high heat. Sautee onions, peppers, and garlic. After sautéing for about 6-7 minutes salt and pepper to taste the peppers and onions. While this is cooking take water and drain out of sausage pot . Coat sausages with about a tablespoon of olive oil. Brown sausages until golden brown on all sides. Turn veggie mixture on very low heat. Once sausage is brown take out of pan and slice into bite size pieces then place back in pan. Once the sausage is browned, de-glaze pan with pickle juice. Cook down scraping up the bits. Add veggie mixture and chopped banana peppers. Cool mixture slightly to handle and put on skewers. Another great idea would be to toast up a baguette and serve like a bruschetta!
A glass of Merlot or a Pinto grigio would pair nicely!
