It’s been another busy day on our plantation – with all the plentiful summer vegetables – this meal seemed perfect for a hot day!  It was delicious!


Foil packet meals are fun meals especially in the summer! These packets can easily be cooked on a grill, baked in the oven or over a campfire! The nice thing about this meal is you can ADD Vegetables, Seasonings or extra butter/oil of your choice! Get your family or friends involved in the meal prep by allowing them to assemble their own packets.

For best results, try cutting your meat and vegetables in uniform-sized pieces, so they cook at the same rate. HINT – I have used leftover sliced potatoes – the pre-cooked potatoes saves time! Other vegetable Ideas – Corn on the Cob – Green Beans! Try splashing Italian Salad dressing over the veggies prior to cooking.

For your convenience, I’ve included cooking instructions for both the grill and the oven.

4-6 tablespoons melted butter or olive oil or a little of both (More/Less depends on your taste)
1–2 cloves garlic, minced
2 – 13 ounces sausage (I used 13oz.-Smoked and 13oz.- 4 Pepper Seasoned), sliced into rounds
1 red bell pepper, sliced
1 yellow bell pepper, sliced
1 green bell pepper, sliced
1 red onion, sliced
1 – 2 stalks celery, diced
1 small zucchini, sliced
1 small yellow squash, sliced
8 ounces small red potatoes, sliced or diced
Cabbage – sliced
Carrots – diced
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper

Eight – 12×12 squares of heavy-duty aluminum foil – I double wrap mine!

Add the vegetables in a large mixing bowl. In a smaller bowl, stir together the olive oil/melted butter, garlic salt and pepper. Drizzle the mixture over the veggies and toss well until everything is coated. Divide everything evenly between the four sheets of foil, placing the meat in the center of each piece of foil with veggies on top. Bring the sides of the foil up and fold them over tightly, ensuring that each sheet forms an enclosed packet over the food. Wrap again with another sheet of foil.

Grill: Preheat grill to medium. Place the packets onto the grill, close the lid, and cook 15-20 minutes or until the vegetables are tender crisp, turning over once halfway through cooking.

Oven: Preheat oven to 400º. Place the packets into the oven and bake 25-30 minutes until the vegetables are tender crisp.

Campfire: The size and heat level of every fire is different; you will have to watch them and turn them often.

The foil packets will be very hot; be very cautious when opening and watch for steam release.
