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 like my sausage kabobs for the grill 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. And you know cooking simple meals is one way you can save money by cooking at home.

How To Make Sausage Packets For The Grill

In a large bowl, you want to combine the sausages, potatoes, peppers, and onions.
Then drizzle with the oil and douse with the seasoning mix. And stir well to combine.
You want to then lay out six 12-inch pieces of heavy duty aluminum foil. Divide the mixture among the six pieces. Fold up facing sides to meet in the middle and then crimp together. Crimp each side closed.
Cook the packets over a hot grill for 25-30 minutes or until the potatoes are tender. Alternatively, you can make them in a 375 degree oven. And serve hot.

What Kind Of Vegetables Should I Use For Sausage Packets?

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 sausage and potatoes her sour cream sauce. So good! If you’re not intent on a dairy-free dinner, definitely plan to mix some up!
