A coil of sausage is a dramatic way to grill sausages for a crowd. As most sausage is sold twisted at intervals into links, you will need to ask your butcher ahead of time to set aside a 3 lb (1.5 kg) piece.

  • Portion size 8 servings

Ingredients

  • 3 lbs sausages
  • 8 whole wheat hot dog buns
  • 8 whole wheat sausage buns
Honey Mustard:
  • 1/4 cup Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 cup grainy mustard
  • 2 teaspoons liquid honey
Onion Pepper Packet:
  • 2 sweet red peppers thinly sliced
  • 2 onions thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper

Method

Honey Mustard: In bowl, combine Dijon mustard, grainy mustard and honey. (Make-ahead: Cover and refrigerate for up to 5 days.)

On rimless baking sheet, coil sausage, leaving 1/2-inch (1 cm) space between rounds. At 6 o'clock position and using wooden skewer, push skewer horizontally through to centre of sausage to secure, keeping space intact. Repeat at 3, 12 and 9 o'clock positions. Place on greased grill over medium-high heat; close lid and grill, turning once, until no longer pink inside, about 25 minutes.

Onion Pepper Packet: Meanwhile, cut 4-foot (1.2 m) piece heavy-duty foil; fold in half. Mound red peppers and onions on 1 side close to centre. Drizzle with oil; sprinkle with basil, salt and pepper. Fold foil over; fold in sides and seal to form packet. Place on grill over medium-high heat; close lid and grill, turning once, until tender, about 10 minutes.

Cut sausage into 8 pieces. Serve on buns with onion mixture and mustard.
