Sausage Vegetable Packets Recipe

Sausage Vegetable Packets Recipe

We have so much squash in the summer, but we never tire of this recipe. We often leave the sausage out of the foil packets and just serve the veggies as a side dish. Even people who don't usually like zucchini enjoy it. —Kay Bish, Thompsonville, Illinois
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Grill: 25 min. YIELD:4 servings


  • 1/2 pound smoked sausage, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 3 medium zucchini, sliced
  • 3 medium tomatoes, sliced
  • 1 medium green pepper, julienned
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1 envelope onion soup mix
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper


  • 1. In a large bowl, combine all the ingredients. Divide between two pieces of double-layered heavy-duty foil (about 12-in. square). Fold foil around sausage mixture and seal tightly.
  • 2. Grill, covered, over medium heat for 25-30 minutes or until the vegetables are tender. Open foil carefully to allow steam to escape. Yield: 4 servings.

"I must say, this is the best tasting, easiest to prepare meal I can think of. I used chicken pineapple sausage and that was a great substitute. Next time I will probably add some pineapple also. Of course, any veggie would be good. Serve with flavored rice. As for JWK45, just add all ingredients to foil as instructed in the recipe and bake in 350 degree oven for 30 minutes or so. I will also make this in the oven when winter comes."

"I wish it would give instructions for doing in the oven. Too much work lighting up a grill just for this recipe."

"When I first saw this recipe it was summer and I tried it. Great idea, great taste and great clean up idea :) However, since I first saw it I have made the same thing many times, no matter the season. I do vary the vegetables depending on what looks best at the store. Sometimes I add onion, sometimes a sweet potato cut in smaller bites, always peppers of varying colors. Sometimes we don't even have meat; just all kinds of veggies. Great recipe turns into lots of different meals."

"My family loves this recipe. It's always a big hit. I sometimes use andouille sausage for the people who like spicy food."

"when I make these packets with veggies, I always add a couple ice cubes for moisture and less butter/use PAM to spray my foil. I do turn mine, but double wrap the veggies and roll the edges together so they do not leak. Make these often during the summer months - great with or without the sausage. ..also use Kielbasa"

"I make a recipe similar to this and spray the foil with Pam first. Then I can use less butter, but it still tastes great and doesn't stick to the regular foil."

"This was tasty, and easy to prepare, however, I found it stuck to my foil. I did use a double thickness of heavy duty foil but I think non-stick foil would have worked better. The recipe did not say to turn it but I did and perhaps this was the problem since the butter tended to escape from the sealed edges. I guess it was not worth the effort to remove it from the foil; so I probably won't prepare it again."

"This was very good. I lightened it up a little by using only 2 tablespoons of butter. Also when I put it on the grill, I turned it to low. When I came back to checkthe packets at 20 minutes, my gas had run out. I opened one packet to check on it and thought the vegetables were done enough and it was hot throughout."
