Sausage with vegetables are wrapped in parchment and grilled for a quick & easy, 1 pot meal. #recipe @MJsKitchen

 

June was extremely hot here.  In fact, it went on record as being the second hottest June ever for my fair city.  In an effort to keep the heat out of the kitchen, we’ve been grilling and making lots of salads. Like every summer, we try something new on the grill to expand our grilling repertoire. This summer it was Cooking en Papillote (pah-pee-YOHT) or cooking in parchment.  Our first dish was this Italian Sausage with Vegetables.

Roasted Bell Pepper Appetizer

Roasted Bell Pepper Appetizer with toast

A reader’s comment  – “I served this appetizer with 5 others on Thanksgiving, and it was, BY FAR, everyone’s favorite appetizer…FABULOUS!!”

I use the perfect marinade that allows the steak to be used in many, many ways.
