Good Ideas: Grilled Sausage, Potatoes & Green Beans


There are still a few more weeks of grilling left on my patio.
Though it is technically fall, it is 80+ degrees out there, so outdoor dining is still available at Chez Stay for about another 2 weeks.

Here is an easy weeknight dinner, all cooked together in one foil packet.
Adapted from a recipe from All Recipes.

Heavy duty foil is best, but you can use a double layer of regular aluminum foil instead.

Slice some Italian sausage links into 2" pieces, along with trimmed green beans, a cut up onion and some cubed red potatoes (about 1" size).

I threw in a few whole cloves of garlic and 3 rosemary sprigs for good luck.

Lay all of your ingredients on a big piece of foil and drizzle liberally w/ olive oil and kosher salt. Seal up the package, but leave room to pour in about 1/3 cup of water, then close it up tightly.

The temperature will depend on the hotness of your grill, every one's BBQ runs differently.
I cooked the foil packet of goodness on my grill for about 30 minutes on low heat, turning after the first 15 minutes.

CAREFULLY (so the steam doesn't burn you!), open the packet to make sure the potatoes are tender and the sausage is cooked thru, and serve!

This is the perfect autumn meal, eaten indoors or out!

That looks good. Never thought to add green beans. They are one of the few green things that my husband will eat.

YUM, love the addition of the green beans. For a sausage suggestion try Original Brat Hans. They are all natural with no preservatives or added hormones, and sold Whole Foods! Thanks!!!

I love packets of goodness like this, and no cleanup is a bonus! I haven't been using my grill though.
