Although I’ve yet to make it out to Tropicana Field this season, with baseball season in full swing, I thought it’d be fun to bring the ballpark home. Not wanting to do just hot dogs or sausages in a bun, I decided on this fun spin to try. For anyone with a grill – this would be a great summer cookout meal too!
Sausages with Onion Relish
- 1 large sweet onion
- 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
- 2 TBSP brown sugar
- 1/4 cup water
- 1/2 tsp Italian seasoning
- 2 sausages (I used mild Italian)
Finely chop up your onions. In a small saucepan, add your onions, balsamic, brown sugar, water, and Italian seasoning. Bring it to a light boil (medium-high heat) and cook for about 20 minutes (stirring often) until the sauce thickens.
In a skillet (or grill pan) cook your sausages on medium heat. Cook these for about 20 minutes, turning occasionally to brown all sides.
Serve these in a bun or without and top with the onion relish. The relish adds a acidic sweetness that cuts through the fat and salt of the sausage. I served mine with asparagus (which was also delicious with the relish topping!)
Until next time!
