You can cook these Sausage and Vegetable Foil Packets on the grill or in your oven. They’ll make a great main dish along with your favorite sides.
Summer is just beginning and I’m always looking for something easy to throw on the grill. Just like the salmon I made the other night.
I’m on a salmon kick now that I finally grilled one to perfection I might add. I don’t know if Gordon Ramsey would think so, but again Mr. Ramsey is not here to judge. My son-in-laws approval was enough for me.
Ok, I didn’t mean to go off tooting my own horn or is it blowing ones horn? Anyway, let’s get on with this recipe. Serves 4 Total Time 30 minutes
8 sheets of foil 14” long or 4 sheets of heavy duty foil
12 fingerling potatoes, halved or quartered depending on size
4 sausage or bratwurst, whichever you prefer, sliced into 1/2” pieces
1 yellow pepper, sliced
1 red pepper, sliced
1 zucchini, sliced
1 red onion, sliced
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1 1/2 tablespoons maple syrup
1 teaspoon smoked paprika
Salt and pepper, to taste
Since your sausage and peppers will cook faster than your potatoes I’d boil them for 15 minutes or until they are “just” fork tender. Preheat the grill to medium or the oven to 425F.
In a large bowl combine the olive oil, garlic, thyme, maple syrup and paprika. Add the vegetables, sausage and potatoes. Salt and pepper, to taste. Stir to coat.
Lay out your foil (doubled if using regular foil) and spoon out sausage mixture evenly onto each 4 piece of foil. Fold to seal like a letter going into an envelope and crimp the ends. Place on grill or a baking sheet if you are using the oven. Bake or grill for 20 minutes. Remove and allow to cool then open gradually to release steam. Serve. Yum Yum!
