Potato-Sausage Foil Packs

We had these smoky campfire bundles at a friend's house for dinner and loved the simplicity of this great summer meal. Now we often make it for summer weeknight dinners. —Alissa Keith, Forest, Virginia

    These are very easy and delicious! I added carrots to mine and cooked them in the oven at 400 degrees for 1 hour.

    This is SO-O-O-O easy and tastes great. I followed the recipe exactly (I added some crushed garlic in addition to the powder; and i used hot turkey sausage which i cooked in the microwave first) and it was awesome. I used 4 layers of regular foil. The potatoes were done perfectly as was everything else. I shared the recipe with a number of friends. I did add some Adobo seasoning to the mixture--it is one of my favorite flavorings. For dessert we had sliced apple with powdered cinnamon and some peanut butter. A super meal.

    DId in a 350 degree oven for 35 mins. Flavor was good but peppers and potatoes were not done- in fact potatoes were hard.

    I don’t know what happened, but everything burned to a crisp when we made these on the grill. Totally inedible. We only cooked it for 30 minutes and it was on medium low heat. Too bad because the few edible pieces we tried were very tasty.

    This was very good. Not my favorite kielbasa recipe, but easy to do & the seasoning is very good. I "grill" mine in the oven. Im thinking if I make it on the grill, it may end up being a five.

    Whole family enjoyed this, and my teenage son ate two packages! Good summer meal. We cooked for 32 minutes on medium grill and had no trouble with burning.

    It is becoming more difficult to find recipes for just one person, but this one was easy to cut down for a nice portion with some leftovers for lunch the next day. I used one large cooked beer brat instead of the kielbasa, just one/half of one green pepper and added some sliced carrots and yellow squash, and a dash of hot sauce. I "grilled" in one packet in the oven (350?) and was thrilled with the results.

    This is a tasty and healthy recipe! I agree with others on two things: 1.) it needs seasoned salt, in my opinion. 2.) If you cook it for a full 30 minutes, it will overcook. Check it after 20. I'll be making this again!
