Easy Paleo Sausage and Peppers

I make this dish often at my larger casual parties and there is never enough. This evening I made two large batches for 22 people and we still had three other hefty portions of protein on the BBQ, and these are still being gobbled up. This is really a very easy paleo sausage and peppers recipe which takes only 15 minutes to prepare if you do one package and if you do 6-8, like I did, it took me about 40 minutes in prep and the rest of the time in the oven to heat up and blend flavors a bit more. You can make it days ahead and then pop it in the oven later. Easy is my “go button”! I just love an easy paleo recipe!

I love the fatty and smoky flavor of a variety of sausages. The sausage grease is delicious and since I buy as healthy and organic as I can, I feel good about eating and serving this and my body loves it too.

I always use a variety of sausages when I make this so the juices all blend and mingle and lend to one another in the ultimate explosion of protein flavors, coating the peppers perfectly. I tend to use mostly beef and pork when I am doing the big dinner plan. These protein sources offer a variety of usages and work very well together. I am sure chicken and/or turkey will do well too. Maybe add a tad of smoke flavoring if you do not get that from the actual sausage ingredients as they cook up. Delicious when served alongside my paleo mashed cauliflower.

Here are a few recommendations if you do not have a local place to purchase organic and fresh made. Most health food stores will carry the better quality sausages as well:
