Foil packets of sausage, peppers and potatoes

Jodi Pudge


  • 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


  • 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!).
