Sausage Foil Packets
These foil packets make such a quick and easy dinner! Loaded with sausage, green beans and potatoes with a little season make them the perfect dinner recipe to throw on the grill after work. My kids love them because they get to eat “hot dogs”, yet I feel a little more sophisticated knowing it’s actually sausage! Plus, I have green beans fresh from the garden right now so I love using them up in these Vegetable & Sausage Foil Packets.
Any meal that satisfies both me and my husband plus our three kiddos is on repeat at our house! I also love that you can throw these in the oven if you don’t want to grill. I’m a woman so I like options! My husband would nod and agree with me on this. Typical woman in his eyes!

Which side of the aluminum foil should touch the food? Which side of the foil sticks less?
- I always thought you should cook with the shiny side in but believe it or not, according to Reynolds Aluminum it doesn’t make a difference! Just like before, it doesn’t make a difference – trust me, I’ve done the research! 😉
- Another tip when it comes to aluminum is always grab the heavy duty foil, trust me there’s a difference!
How long does it take to cook sausage foil packets?
