Grilled Sausage Bread Bowls

  • 2 Italian sausage links -- spicy or mild or combination
  • 2 ends of a sourdough bread loaf, hollowed out
  • 2 T. olive oil
  • 1 medium red onion, sliced
  • 1/2 green pepper, finely diced
  • 1 medium tomato, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp. smoked paprika -- you can use regular if smoked isn't available
  • 1/4 tsp. ground cumin
  • 2 T. butter

Prepare a gas grill and grill the sausage over direct heat, to cook, and the bread ends over indirect heat, to toast.

Meanwhile, heat the olive oil over high heat in a medium skillet. Add the onions and pepper and cook until softened. Lower the heat to medium and add the tomato, garlic and seasonings. Cook for an additional 5-7 minutes or until the mixture becomes softened and almost creamy. Remove from the heat and add the butter, mixing until it melts.

Remove the bread and sausage from the grill. Place each bread end in a bowl. Slice the sausage and add to the bowl and cover with the vegetable mixture. Serve immediately.
