They say we eat with our eyes first. So the fact I add sauted bell peppers to so many things is no surprise.

This is also probably why whenever sausage and peppers are on the dinner menu, leftovers don’t happen. Even better clean-up is a breeze with everything cooked in one pan.

Bright and sweet bell peppers are a go-to vegetable in my house. They are so versatile fresh, frozen, or cooked. Cook to just blistered and charred they cook up tender and sweet with lots of flavor.

For the sausage, I like to use smoked sausage or kielbasa. Turkey, beef, or pork really any of them work great.

This is a great dish to have in your pocket when shopping the sale fliers. I like to stock up on a few packages of sausage in the freezer to have on hand for a quick dinner.

When slicing the sausage keep the pieces to 1/4-inch thick or so. This gives more surface area to get crispy and flavorful. It also cooks more quickly to get dinner on the table in no time at all.

Sausage with Peppers Recipe

  1. Heat a large deep skillet (For me, this Misen pan is the perfect skillet) over medium-high heat. Add 1 tablespoon oil to the hot skillet and then add the sausage. Toss to coat and cook until browned, about 3 minutes per side. Transfer the sausage to a plate.
  2. Return the pan to the stove and reduce the heat to medium. Add the remaining tablespoon of oil (only if needed) and then the onion. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 2 minutes until the onion begins to soften.
  3. Add the bell peppers, garlic, oregano, salt, and pepper, and continue cooking until the peppers are crisp-tender. Return the sausage to the pan.
  4. Remove from the heat and sprinkle with green onions and parsley. Serve warm.

There are so many great ways to cook bell peppers! Once you’ve mastered sauteeing, you may want to try grilling, or roasting.

I like to incorporate the bright colors and sweet, peppery flavors into so many different dishes.
