These little sausage-stuffed grilled sweet peppers are like popcorn. You just keep popping them into your mouth. They are very, very good. The original inspiration came from Chris over at the Nibble Me This blog site. Check Chris’ site out. He always posts great grilling and smoking ideas.

Sausage-Stuffed Grilled Sweet Peppers

Since we are currently remodeling our kitchen we made these entirely on our ancient Weber gas grill. No matter what you use to make them, these sausage-stuffed grilled sweet peppers are fantastic.

The Italian sausage mixture is moist, tender, and very tasty! For a pizza twist, try my grilled bell pepper pizzas!
