Whip up an easy dinner in a flash with these Sausage Packets for the Grill. Toss together a green salad and dinner is ready in no time!

Quick and easy is the name of the game when it comes to summertime meals. If you can cook them outside on the grill, so much the better! Stay out of a hot and stuffy kitchen and still be able to enjoy a delicious dinner.

One such meal that we’re enjoying a lot this summer are these Sausage Packets for the grill. It’s gotten to the point that we’ve had them on a weekly basis, something I thought my kids would balk at. But, no, eyes light up.

The thing is that this meal is incredibly EASY. Like it almost feels like cheating to even call this a recipe, but it’s so very good and simple and delicious, that it would be a crime NOT to tell you about it.

Mix up smoked sausages, chopped potatoes, peppers, and onions and douse them with olive oil and seasoning mix. Divide the mixture among foil sheets, fold up, and grill. I’ve seen people use other veggies, like zucchini, but because I wanted to include potatoes, I veered away from veggies that might get too soggy or mushy cooking alongside heartier potatoes. The peppers and onions seem to hold up really well. But, you do you, and if you like soft veggies, go for it.

I love it that this meal is naturally dairy- and gluten-free (depending on what kind of sausage you use, of course). That means you can easily make this for company without worrying that there’d be a forbidden ingredient. You could easily omit the sausage for vegetarian friends, too.

This combo reminds me so much of the dinner my friend Jen served us in France that recently I started serving it with her sour cream sauce. So good! If you’re not intent on a dairy-free dinner, definitely plan to mix some up!
