We've made this recipe SO many times, and every time we are in awe with out delicious this is! I often switch up the veggies a bit. I always omit the mushrooms, but I often add broccoli and bell pepper. This past time I also included baby corn spears. Sometimes I also switch up the sausage (we've tried different flavors and types of sausage). I usually only do 1 lb of meat, about 1/3 bag of baby carrots, 1 small to medium head of broccoli, and 1 lb of potatoes. Then I cut the "sauce" ingredients only in half (butter, onion soup mix, soy sauce, pepper). We also use lower sodium soy sauce and I think it tastes great! We will continue to make this recipe, tweaking it as we go. Thanks so much for such a simple but delicious meal!

Too wet and cold outside to make the packets and grill, so baked in the oven and it came out wonderful. I still made the packets and placed on a jelly roll pan in the oven. Will definitely make this again as my family loved it!

This is a great recipe! I followed the instructions but only used 1lb of Bratwurst and 5 or 6 red potatoes. Baked it in the oven at 375 for one hour. It came out great!

Made tonight for a cottage party. We used tinfoil roasting pans instead of foil packets. Just stirred every so often. I also used fresh Italian sausage which I parboiled first for about 15 minutes. Even made one packet Vegetarian for one guest. Everyone loved the meal.

Love this recipe. The trifecta quick, easy and delicious. My wife doesn't like mushrooms so i can't wait to try it with the shrooms, but i love it without. Great for camping. I prepare it ahead of time. And everyone loves it.

When I use Andouille or kielbasa in a recipe, I found the cutting the sausage lengthwise first then in thirds allows the sausage to cook better and lend it's flavor more efficiently to the ingredients surrounding it. It is better for browning them too.When making jambalaya, cutting this way lets the sausage release the spices into the rice in a better way making the rice more flavorful. Works well with potatoes too.

Family favorite. I triple the recipe for large gatherings and cook in my Nesco. Never any leftovers.

This is still my husbands favorite dinner - two years since my first review. He requests it so often that I now alternate the soup mix and soy sauce with montreal steak spice to keep things interesting. And I always pre-fry the brats in a pan now, just to crisp the outside not cooked all the way through, it adds so much more flavor!

I've made this many times since I came across the recipe several years ago. It is by far one of our families favorite meals. Very delicious!
