  • 3 medium Yukon Gold or red potatoes (about 1 pound), cut into ¼ inch slices
  • 3 cups 1-inch bell pepper pieces
  • 4 links cooked chicken sausage (12 ounces), cut into ½ inch slices
  • 2 cups sliced onions
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • ½ teaspoon dried thyme
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground pepper


  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Combine potatoes, peppers, sausage, onions, oil, paprika, thyme, salt and pepper in a large bowl.
  2. Cut 8 pieces of heavy-duty foil, about 12 by 17 inches each. Coat one piece with cooking spray. Place about 2 cups of the potato mixture in the center of the coated foil and enclose like a package. Place seam-side down on a second piece of foil and enclose again so the potato mixture is wrapped in a double-thick packet. Repeat with the remaining foil and potato mixture, making 4 total packets.
  3. Prepare a campfire and let it burn down to the coals. Cook the packets 4 to 6 inches above the coals, turning once or twice, until vegetables are tender, about 25 minutes.
  • To make ahead: Store the assembled packets in a refrigerator or cold cooler for up to 1 day.

tasty and easy! We cooked the packets on the grill at about 500 degrees for 30 minutes. It was about 5-10 minutes too long. Next time will try a bit higher temp and shorter time to get more browned, crispy bits. Using the grill was great because we didn't have to heat up the house by turning on the oven.
