Duet of Grilled Sausages with Broccoli

Well, the kids are off of school for the summer, which leaves me a lot less time in the kitchen. I think you'll agree that summer is best spent enjoying the beautiful weather. This meal is quick and delicious, and all done on the grill. Just leave 30 minutes to marinade the broccoli. Feel free to substitute your favorite sausage, just be sure you know what's in them, they contain a short list of ingredients, and they're nitrate-free.

1 lb Italian sausages
1 lb nitrate-free andouille sausage
2 heads, about 8 cups, broccoli, trimmed and cut into pieces
3 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
2 Tbsp fresh squeezed lemon juice
sea salt
freshly ground pepper

  1. Toss broccoli with olive oil and lemon juice and season with salt and pepper. Let broccoli marinade fro 30 minutes.
  2. Preheat the grill to medium and set a grill-topper on the grate. Grill broccoli for 8-10 minutes on each side, or until crisp-tender.
  3. While broccoli is grilling, grill sausages according to package directions, until cooked through.
  4. Serve immediately.
