I almost didn’t write this post because making Sausage, Peppers, and Onions is so little work, I don’t even consider it cooking. Then, it occurred to me that this could really benefit some busy moms out there. As I prepared this meal, while not feeling so well today, I reminisced about how my mom always managed to put a balanced meal on the table, even when she had a fever. (My dad was so clueless in the kitchen. He can barely use the microwave correctly.)

Sausage, Peppers, and onions, was one of the few non-Chinese food dishes my mom made and I remember my brother begging for it sometimes. Yet, it’s the easiest dish to prepare. Anyone can slice bell peppers and onions.

Poke the sausages with a fork a few times and boil them for 6-8 minutes. It’s done when the color has changed inside. Cool sausages and then slice them. All this can be done ahead of time and when you’re ready just saute the onions in a bit of vegetable oil until almost soft, add peppers till soft, season the veggies, then add sausages (which are already cooked) till heated. You’re done. Sometimes, my mom would add tomato sauce.

I just put the bread and a pile of sausage, peppers, and onions on the table for everyone to make their own sandwiches/heros.
