Italian Classics


  • 4 Dempster’s® Ancient Grains Large Tortillas.
  • 2 mild Italian sausages
  • 1 red pepper, quartered
  • 1 green pepper, quartered
  • 1 onion, cut into 1/2-inch (1 cm) rounds
  • 1/4 cup (60 mL) shredded Fontina cheese
  • 1 pickled banana pepper, sliced (optional)


  1. Preheat grill to medium heat; grease grates well.
  2. Grill sausages, turning, for 15 to 18 minutes or until cooked through. Grill peppers and onions for 5 to 6 minutes per side or until grill-marked and tender.
  3. Slice sausages in half lengthwise; cut peppers and onion into bite-size pieces.
  4. Arrange tortillas on a clean work surface; divide sausages, peppers, onions, cheese and banana pepper slices (if using) among tortillas. Fold up the bottom of the tortillas over the filling, then fold in the sides and roll up tightly.

Tip: Substitute pickled Italian vegetables for the pickled banana peppers if desired.
