Bratwurst Supper

After trying a few bratwurst recipes, I've found this meal-in-one is ideal for camping since it grills to perfection in a heavy-duty foil bag. Loaded with chunks of bratwurst, red potatoes, mushrooms and carrots, it's easy to season with onion soup mix and a little soy sauce. —Janice Meyer, Medford, Wisconsin
  • Total Time
    Prep: 10 min. Grill: 45 min.
  • Makes
    12 servings


  • 3 pounds uncooked bratwurst links
  • 3 pounds small red potatoes, cut into wedges
  • 1 pound baby carrots
  • 1 large red onion, sliced and separated into rings
  • 2 jars (4-1/2 ounces each) whole mushrooms, drained
  • 1/4 cup butter, cubed
  • 1 envelope onion soup mix
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper


  • For each of 2 foil packets, arrange a double thickness of heavy-duty foil (about 17x15 in.) on a flat surface.
  • Cut brats into thirds. Divide the brats, potatoes, carrots, onion and mushrooms evenly between the 2 double-layer foil rectangles. Dot with butter. Sprinkle with soup mix, soy sauce and pepper. Bring edges of foil together; crimp to seal, forming 2 large packets. Seal tightly; turn to coat.
  • Grill, covered, over medium heat for 23-28 minutes on each side or until vegetables are tender and sausage is no longer pink. Open foil carefully to allow steam to escape.

    This was fabulous!! We were under a fire ban - no campfires - so I baked this in the oven, using a roasting pan, covered with foil, at 350 for approx 45 minutes. I also added chopped up yellow squash! 5 stars!!

    Made this for a camping potluck and it worked out fantastic over an open fire and we had no leftovers.

    By far the most disgusting food I have ever eaten. Wasted all that money and time. This was enough for me to vomit.

    I have made this for years, so glad others have enjoyed for large gatherings. Have made in the oven and sent to friends uncooked for their larger gatherings. I use low sodium soy sauce. KEEPER

    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!
