Foil packets of sausage, peppers and potatoes

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 lbs mini yellow-fleshed potatoes , halved or quartered if large
  • 1 small red sweet pepper , cut into 1-in. pieces
  • 1 small green sweet pepper , cut into 1-in. pieces
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp chopped garlic
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 lb uncooked Italian pork sausages , cut on the bias into 1-in. lengths
  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter , cut into pieces
  • 4 sprigs thyme

Directions

  • Preheat barbecue to high heat.
  • Combine potatoes, peppers, olive oil, garlic and salt in a bowl, and toss to coat.
  • Lay 4 foil sheets (about 12 x 16-in.) on the counter, and divide vegetable mixture equally between them. Add sausages, dot with butter, and add a sprig of thyme, before folding and rolling edges to fully seal packages.
  • Cook packets, turning once, for 25 min, or until potatoes and sausages are cooked through, tender and lightly golden.
  • Open packets and transfer to plates (or just for fun, serve right in the foil and save on the dishes!).

Tip:

Be sure to read the ingredients labels when you buy sausages. Some brands are full of fillers and higher in sodium.
