Bratwurst – I used beer Bratwurst, but any flavor or brand of brats work. Or swap with Italian sausage if you would prefer that.
Onions – I used a sweet yellow onion. I would recommend to use a yellow or white onion for this recipe.
Peppers – Red, orange, and a green bell pepper are what I reached for. Any colors work, and I love the variety all the peppers add.
Salt and Pepper – Season with salt and pepper on the veggies. It is simple but all you want is to enhance the natural flavors of the veggies.
Hoagie Rolls – Any style of hoagie roll or even a hot dog but works. Or you can opt to serve without a bun for a lower carb option.
Oil – You will use whatever oil you prefer using on your Blackstone flat top grill. I used Canola oil, but feel free to reach for what you prefer. Do not use olive oil as it smokes quite a bit.
How to Make
Step 1: First you will want to wash your peppers, slice into long strips, and slice up your onion as well. Then for the bratwurst you will want to butterfly cut your brats. To do this, slice down the center, just not cutting all the way through.
Step 2: Now you will want to turn your grill on, on high. Then clean your grill, and then add a bit of oil down. Place your bratwurst with the sliced side facing down on your griddle.
Step 3: On the other side of your grill squirt on a bit more oil, and toss on your peppers and onions. Squirt a little water, and season with salt and pepper.
Step 4: Now you will cook your brats until nice and golden in color, then flip to the other side. I cooked my brats for around 5-7 minutes on each side.
Step 5: For the peppers and onions you will just move them around to prevent the mix form burning. I cooked until softened, and some had some charring on it.
Step 6: When the brats and pepper mixture are close to done, move over the pepper mixture. Butter or squirt on more oil and then lay your hoagie rolls onto the grill to toast the buns a bit.
Step 7: Once all the items are done, place your hoagie on a plate. Top with a butterfly cut cooked brat, and peppers and onions. Then serve up the mixture!
