Bratwurst Supper Recipe

Bratwurst Supper Recipe

This meal-in-one grills to perfection in a heavy-duty foil bag and is ideal for camping. 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. YIELD: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


  • 1. For each of two foil packets, arrange a double thickness of heavy-duty foil (about 17x15 in.) on a flat surface.
  • 2. Cut brats into thirds. Divide the brats, potatoes, carrots, onion and mushrooms evenly between the two double-layer foil pieces. Dot with butter. Sprinkle with soup mix, soy sauce and pepper. Bring edges of foil together; crimp to seal, forming two large packets. Seal tightly; turn to coat.
  • 3. Grill, covered, over medium heat for 23-28 minutes on each side or until vegetables are tender and sausage is no longer pink. Yield: 12 servings.

"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."

"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 follow the recipe except I simmer it covered in a large skillet. Because it is difficult to get all the ingredients in the skillet, I use 2 lbs. baby red potatoes and 2 lbs. of bratwurst."

"This recipe was great! I loved the seasonings used, now one of my top favorites for camping. I used fresh mushrooms, and next time I will grill the brats on their own so they can crisp up."

"So easy and delicious too! I used fresh mushrooms instead of canned. Next time I may add a little beer or water to the mix to help it steam a little better. I doubled the butter but that was not necessary."

"This is a perfect recipe to feed a crowd. I love making it for the simplicity. All wrapped in foil and serve on a big platter. Have made this several times. Make sure you seal tightly so as not to lose all the juices when turning. over. Big hit around the campfire!!!"
