These hearty and simple sandwiches are a street fair favorite, which can be enjoyed at home. Serve with creamy coleslaw, assortment of sweet, hot and dill pickles, chips and watermelon wedges.

- 6 sweet onion (large, peeled and thinly sliced)
- 6 cloves garlic (crushed)

- In large skillet sauté peppers in oil until soft, about 5 minutes. Add onions and garlic, season with salt and pepper and continue cooking, stirring frequently, until vegetables are lightly browned, 10-15 minutes. Pepper mixture can be made ahead; reheat at serving time or serve at room temperature.
