These super easy Sausages, Potato, and Veggie Foil Packet Dinners bring the fun of summer camp to your backyard… or campsite… or even kitchen table.
For those of you who have seen our every popular 15 Minute Super Easy Foil Packet Fish Dinners, you know how easy these foil packet dinners are.
And popular with everyone, because they’re completely customizable to preference. If someone has an aversion to say, onions, (as incredible as that might be), simply eliminate it and mark the packet before it’s grilled.
Here’s what happens in my family. Rule of thumb is one sausage link per packet. If they’re extra-large, I’ll take half, my son will take two, and hubby gets his and half of mine. A perfect marriage. All packets are marked and everyone is happy.
If friends come unexpectedly, easy. There’s always enough to fill more packets.
SAUSAGE, POTATO AND VEGGIE FOIL PACKET IDEAS
SAUSAGE IDEAS: MAKES 4 PACKETS
I happened to love using Aidell sausages. They not only taste great but come in packages of 4, making them perfect for these foil packets. My favorite is the Chicken and Apple, but my guys’ favorites tend toward spicy.
Here are some ideas:
Chicken and apple sausage
VEGETABLE IDEAS: 1 CUP PER PACKET
Green Beans, trimmed and halved
Bell peppers, thinly sliced
Red onion, thinly sliced
Sweet onion, thinly sliced
Corn kernels, thawed if frozen
Carrots, thinly sliced
Leeks, thinly sliced
Scallions, cut into 1-inch pieces
Mushrooms, thinly sliced
Grape or cherry tomatoes, halved
Zucchini or yellow squash, thinly sliced
Baby Yukon Gold, quartered
Red potatoes, quartered
HOW TO ASSEMBLE FOIL PACKETS
Measure out 4 large sheets of heavy-duty foil. Mound 1 cup vegetables and 1 quartered or halved potato in the center of each packet. Top with 1-inch size sliced sausage. Then season with salt and pepper, sprinkle paprika and red pepper flakes; dot with butter. Bring the short ends of the foil together and fold twice to seal; fold in the sides to form a tight seal.
COOKING THE FOIL PACKETS
GRILL OR CAMPFIRE:
Preheat a grill to medium-high or light a campfire and put a cooking grate in place. Grill the foil packets 20 to 25 minutes or until the potatoes are tender. Let the packets sit 5 minutes before carefully opening; they will be steamy and hot!
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees and bake on a sheet pan for 20 to 25 minutes, or until the potatoes are tender. Let the packets sit 5 minutes before carefully opening; they will be steamy and hot!
