Equipment

  • Heavy Duty Foil
  • Olive oil cooking spray

Ingredients

Foil Packs

  • 1 package (13 oz.; 368g) Smoked Turkey or Chicken Sausage, coined
  • 2 cups (335g) (~3/4 lb or 12 oz) unpeeled baby red potatoes, quartered
  • 2 cups (200g) (7 oz) green beans, trimmed
  • 3 sweet corn (on the cob), sliced into thick rounds
  • 4 large cloves (about 2 tbsp; 17g) minced garlic
  • 4-6 tablespoons unsalted butter

Seasonings

  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 and 1/2 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 2 teaspoons Italian Seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon EACH: garlic powder, onion powder
  • Fine sea salt and pepper
  • Optional, but recommended: freshly grated Parmesan cheese, fresh parsley

Instructions

  • OVEN/GRILL PREP: If using the OVEN; preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. If GRILLING, prepare the grill by heating to medium-high heat (450 degrees F). Prepare 4-6 large (2 feet long) sheets of HEAVY-DUTY foil; lightly spritz with cooking spray. Alternatively, line a large sheet pan with parchment paper. (Clean up is just as easy!)
  • INGREDIENT PREP: Coin the sausage. Slice the baby red potatoes in half and then half again; if the baby potatoes are large cut them down more -- we're looking for 1/2-inch cubed potatoes. Trim the green beans. Shuck the corn and slice into thick rounds. See Note 1.
  • SEASON: Add the prepped sausage, corn, green beans, potatoes, and garlic to a large bowl. Toss with all of the seasonings (paprika, dried parsley, Italian seasoning, garlic powder, onion powder, and salt/pepper to taste; I add 3/4 teaspoon fine sea salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper). Toss until ingredients are well combined.
  • PREPARE PACKETS: Divide the mixture evenly among the prepared sheets of foil. (We typically do 5 sheets of foil which comes out to about 2 cups (315g) of the mixture.) Place 1 tablespoon of butter in each packet or on top of the prepared baking pan. (Divide the pats of butter evenly over the top.) Seal the foil packs tightly so no air escapes, but there is still room for steam to circulate. Do not double up foil (only one sheet of foil per pack).
  • GRILL: Grill for 25-30 minutes or until veggies have reached desired tenderness. (Flip the foil packs at the halfway point and check for doneness.) BAKE in foil packs: Bake for 30-40 minutes (at 30 minutes veggies are crisp; 35 is perfect for us; 40 is very tender veggies). You can set the foil packs right on the oven rack or on a sheet pan for easier removal from the oven. BAKE ON SHEET PAN: Bake for about 30-35 minutes, flipping/stirring the ingredients once at the halfway point. **See additional cooking methods in the last paragraph of the post)**
  • ENJOY: Carefully open the foil pack, expecting steam to be released. Garnish if desired with fresh chopped parsley, any additional salt/pepper, and lots of freshly grated Parmesan cheese on the beans, potatoes, and sausage. Enjoy immediately!

Notes

Note 1: Cutting corn into rounds: This is a little tricky! I recommend using a very sharp chef's knife. Place the knife where you'd like to cut and then place a thick kitchen towel on top of the knife. Use the palm of your hand to firmly press down on the towel-covered knife; you'll need to use some muscle here!
Make ahead of time: If you'd like to prepare these packets ahead of time, I'd recommend assembling everything except for the potatoes; potatoes will brown if stored and prepared much in advance. Cut and toss the potatoes in right before grilling or cooking the foil pack meals.
