This grilled sausage, onion and pepper sandwich is a sports fan and family favorite!
I love hot dogs, but when I want to kick things up a notch, I go for a bratwurst or this grilled sausage, onion and pepper sandwich. What I like about the sausage sandwich is I can choose the type of sausage that fits my current mood. I can go spicy hot Italian sausage or choose the mild variety. Sometimes I even go with a polish sausage.
Regardless of which sausage you choose, the grilled sausage, onion and pepper sandwich is sure to become your favorite “tubular” sandwich.
