Food & Wine Pairing: 2015 GIFFT Rosé with Grilled Sausages
2015 GIFFT Rosé with Grilled SausagesTotal Time: 10 mins
12 potato bratwurst-style hot dog buns
12 high-quality chicken or turkey smoked sausages
Assortment of favorite toppings (diced onions, pickel relish, saurkraut, etc).
Fire up your grill and set one half of the grill to medium high heat, setting the other half to medium-low heat. Once the grill has finished warming up, add the sausages to the medium-low side of the grill and allow them to heat through, about 5 minutes. Once the sausages have warmed, move them to the medium-hot side of the grill for another 5 minutes. Continue switching the sausages between medium-hot and medium-low sides of the grill until the center of the sausages reaches 150 degrees fahrenheit and and grill marks have appeared. The goal is to cook the sausages all the way through without burning them, or causing the casing to become tough.
Once the sausages are done, remove from the grill and let sit for 5 minutes. This brings them to edible temperature and allows the juices to settle evenly throughout the sausage, maximizing flavor. Serve with your favorite toppings and a chilled bottle of 2015 GIFFT Rosé for the perfect summer party!
