Grilled Sausages
Grilled Potatoes, Peppers and Onions

Cooking time:  30 minutes for menu          Cooking schedule: see below for instructions

     Another dinner from the barbecue......

Grilled Sausages                                                        Preparation and cooking time: 15 minutes
  There is such a variety of sausage available, you can grill them often and never repeat.  Duck, turkey, chicken, beef as well as pork, hot, mild, smoked or not. 

4 - 8 sausages, depending on size,  12oz total weight (350gr)   

This is really a tough one  - cook them on the barbecue grill (or sauté them) until done.  Serve.

Grilled Potatoes, Peppers, and Onions             Preparation and cooking time:  35 minutes
   Another summer staple: grilled vegetables!  If you have a proper mesh grill pan, perfect.  If not use any old metal pan (cake pan, pie pan, foil pan, whatever) that is designated for permanent grill use  - the bottom will be blackened...

2 medium potatoes
1/2 green pepper 
1/2 red, yellow or orange pepper
1 onion 
1 tbs olive oil
1 tbs lemon juice
1 tbs soy sauce
1 tbs snipped fresh oregano  substitute 1 tsp dried
1 tbs snipped fresh chives    substitute 1 tsp dried

Slice peppers and onion (either vertically or horizontally - tastes the same) into thick slices. Slice potatoes in half the long way, then in half again. Then slice in half or thirds the short way.  Snip herbs.  Put herbs, olive oil, lemon and soy sauce in a large bowl, add all vegetables and toss well to coat.  Put into 'grill pan' (a metal or foil pan dedicated to use on the grill) or onto a mesh grill pan (the idea is not to have the stuff fall through the grate into the fire....) Cook over medium heat 20 - 30 minutes, until vegetables have a nice color and potatoes are done.  Serve.

OR:  Put potatoes, onions and peppers onto a baking sheet with a lip (my trusty 'pizza' pan) and roast in 400F (200C) oven for 30 minutes.
