This recipe showcases Viennese beef sausages, a gourmet variety studded with nutty Swiss cheese. We’re pairing the hearty, cheesy sausages with sweet peppers and kale (you may receive green curly, dark green lacinato, or red kale). A side of mashed sweet potato, finished with melty Monterey Jack, adds another layer of savory-sweet flavor to the dish.
