  • Then move your sausages to the cooler side of the grill and let them "bake" until fully cooked by putting the lid on the grill - about 5 - 10 more minutes.

  • If you don't have a grill, brown each side in a frying pan for 3 to 5 minutes then turn the heat down and cover, cooking for another five to ten minutes. Adding a small amount of water to the pan will steam the sausages will steam them and help keep them juicy.


Usually, green onion sausages are not pre-cooked, so you must be sure to thoroughly cook them. Internal temperature should reach 150°F or 65°C. When you poke your sausage, it should feel similar to your thumb muscle when you press your pinky and thumb together. (If you are uncertain, test the temperature or cut it open.) It is always better to be safe!
