Peppers and Onions and Grilling Season is Here!!

I love to grill in the summer. Today I am making brats, hamburgers and hot dogs. With the brats I love to make a cooked onion mixture on the stove first. I slice up 2 or 3 nice onions, vidalias are my favorite, slice a couple of green peppers and chop several pepperonchinis. In a 2 quart saucepan (depending on how many onions you might need a bigger one) melt 1/2 cup butter or you can use olive oil or both. Add all the ingredients and let simmer until everything is nice and soft but not burnt . You will need to stir it every so often and leave it on low. It smells so good, can't you smell it now, it is the smell of summer barbecue season!! Let it cook for a while and then add to the top of your delicious grilled sausages. It goes with everything and also good on hamburgers. The pepperonchini give it a nice warmth without making it too spicy. Of course you can had spicy peppers if you like. Now go and grill!!

I can practically smell it through the monitor. You're an evil woman teasing us like that.

Is there a better aroma than fried onions and peppers? If you find it please let me know.

Looks soooo delicious, I love grilling too. My fave is potatoes and onions on the grill. I slice them and put them, covered in spices and olive oil, in an old 9x9 round pan, cover with foil and put them on the grill.
