1 red bell pepper
1 red onion, thickly sliced
2 teaspoons olive oil
4 links chipotle or regular bratwurst
1/4 teaspoon salt
Freshly ground pepper
Makes 2 servings.
Prepare a grill for medium-high heat. Place the pepper in the glowing coals if possible, turning with tongs until all sides are blackened, about 10 minutes. Enclose in paper bag; let rest 10 minutes.
Drizzle onion slices with olive oil. Grill bratwurst and onion slices, turning often, until links are browned and cooked through and the onions begin to caramelize, 10-15 minutes.
Meanwhile, remove the red pepper from the bag; peel off blackened skin. Core; remove seeds. Cut pepper into strips. Place in a bowl. Remove onion from grill; chop. Toss with peppers. Season with the salt and pepper to taste. Serve brats with peppers and onions.
