Prep Time

15 minutes

Cook Time

25 minutes


5 servings


Olive oil cooking spray

2 large bell peppers, sliced

2 medium white onions, thinly sliced

2 tablespoons olive oil

3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar

1 teaspoon smoked paprika

½ teaspoon salt

½ teaspoon black pepper

1 package (5 links) mild or spicy Italian chicken sausage

5 whole wheat hot dog buns

Optional condiments: mustard, ketchup


  1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil, and lightly grease it.
  2. In a large bowl, toss the bell peppers, onions, olive oil, apple cider vinegar, smoked paprika, salt, and black pepper until evenly coated.
  3. Spread the sausages and vegetables evenly on the prepared baking sheet, making sure they are in a single layer.
  4. Roast in the preheated oven for 25 to 30 minutes until the vegetables are tender and slightly caramelized. Stir once halfway through the cooking time.
  5. In the last 5 minutes of roasting, place the hot dog buns directly on the oven rack to toast lightly.
  6. Once done, remove the sheet pan from the oven. Place one sausage link into each toasted bun and top with vegetable mixture. Serve immediately and enjoy.
  7. Leftover prepared dogs may be warmed up; however, they are best to eat once prepared. The sausage and vegetables can be stored in the refrigerator in an airtight container for about 3 to 4 days. It is best to not freeze leftovers.
