The natural pairing of cabbage and sausage makes a delicious, hearty meal in a packet that is a cinch to clean up. While the grill is hot, grill some bread to accompany the packets. Source:, May 2018

  • Preheat grill to medium-high. Cut six 14-inch lengths of heavy-duty foil. Coat 1 side of each piece of foil with cooking spray.

  • Stir sausage and 1 tablespoon oil together in a small bowl until evenly coated. Combine cabbage, onion, vinegar, caraway seeds, pepper, salt and the remaining 2 tablespoons oil in a large bowl; stir to coat thoroughly. Evenly divide the cabbage mixture among the foil sheets (place on the side coated with cooking spray), then top each with a portion of the sausage. Gather together the long ends of each foil piece, then fold up its open sides to form a packet.

  • Place the packets on the grill and cook until the vegetables are tender and lightly charred, about 20 minutes total.


To make ahead: Prepare packets (Step 2) up to 2 hours ahead and refrigerate.
