  • 1 Miller’s Cracked Pepper Garlic & Herb rope, cut crosswise into thirds

  • 1 pound small red potatoes, cut into large chunks

  • 1 large (about 1 pound) onion, cut into 12 wedges

  • 2 red and/or yellow peppers, cut lengthwise into 8 pieces

  • A few sprigs rosemary

  • About 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • A heaping teaspoon kosher salt

  • Freshly cracked black pepper

Prep & Cook

Preheat oven to 450°F.

Arrange the sausages, potatoes, onion wedges, peppers, and rosemary in one layer on a half-sheet pan. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt, paying particular attention to the vegetables (the sausages are already seasoned); gently toss to coat.

Roast for 30 to 35 minutes or until potatoes are fork-tender and sausages are lightly browned, stirring once halfway through roasting.



  • Miller’s Colossal All-Beef Frankfurters

Prep & Cook

Make sure the grill is clean. Spray the grates with non-stick spray.

  • (Pro-tip, if you’re making kabobs, spray the skewers too so the food is easier to eat)

Preheat the gas grill on high for at least 5 minutes to ensure even cooking. Reduce heat to medium for grilling.

Use tongs to place rather than forks. Puncturing the dogs early will release the juices resulting in a dry hot dog.

Keep ‘em moving. This is where you grab a beer and just stay near the grill, you don’t want to leave them on one side for too long, roll them around to ensure even cooking.

When the franks get red, plump and start to sweat, they’re done. Usually about 5-7 minutes for Miller’s Colossal Franks.

  • Pro-tip, 2-3 minutes before the dogs are done, open up your buns, brush some butter on them and place them open side down on the grill. They only need a few seconds and the toasted inside will add a subtle crunch to every bite.
