Now that you have the veggies out of the way, time to get the Italian sausage going.  Skewer together 5-6 raw sausages.  Make sure to tightly compact them together as this will be the base for the cheese and veggies.  Using 2 skewers, punch them through on opposite ends to keep the links sturdy.  I highly recommend using metal skewers vs. wooden. If your only option is wood, then soak them in water for 10-15 minutes before putting on the grill.

Seared Italian sausages

First start grilling the sausages on the direct side to get a nice sear and some color on both sides.  This will take 2-3 minutes per side.  Next, move them to the indirect side and it’s time to load them up.

Start with a generous layer of shredded mozzarella cheese.  Add in the sautéed peppers and onions and top with a little bit more cheese.  Grill until the internal temperature of the Italian sausages reach 165 degrees.

Before removing the skewers, slice down the middle.  This doubles the amount of servings.  These loaded Italian sausage skewers are great for tailgates or just having some friends over.  Enjoy!
