Grilled Pepper and Onion Hot Dogs

  • Author: Cullys Kitchen


  • 1 medium green bell pepper (cut into strips)
  • 1 medium red bell pepper (cut into strips)
  • 1 small sweet onion (sliced)
  • ¼ cup Zesty Italian dressing
  • 1 package of hot dogs
  • Hot dog buns


  1. Prepare and preheat grill to medium heat
  2. Place peppers and onion on a large sheet of heavy duty aluminum foil and drizzle the dressing over the top. Fold the foil over the vegetables to form a packet.
  3. Grill vegetables for 15 minutes or until crisp-tender.
  4. After 6 minutes start grilling the hot dogs, grilling them until heated through. (Turn packet and hot dogs occasionally while grilling) this is also a good time to toast the buns if you wish to do so.
  5. Remove the foil packet from the grill and cut a few slits in the top to release the steam, and then open carefully. Serve the hot dogs topped with the vegetable mixture
