Grilled Sausage Foil Packets
Grilling a meal is a wonderful way to enjoy warmer weather, make dinner, and not heat up the kitchen. We really loved these Garlic Kielbasa Grilled Foil Packets for their great flavor, but also because it was so simple to make and the whole meal was grilled right in the little packets. Could not be easier!
Here’s what you’ll need to make the Garlic Kielbasa Grilled Foil Packets (the exact measurements and full recipe instructions are below in the printable recipe card):
- Garlic kielbasa
- Potatoes – I used Yukon Gold potatoes, but you can use any variety you like.
- Sweet peppers – these are small, sweet (not spicy) peppers you can find in the produce section. I usually buy a bag for snacking!
- Corn on the cob
- Olive oil
- Italian seasoning blend
- Garlic powder
- Onion powder
How to Make Grilled Sausage Foil Packets
Begin by heating your grill to 350ºF, which should be medium heat on a gas grill.
Next, prepare the ingredients by slicing the kielbasa into 1-inch thick medallions, cutting the corn into a total of 8 pieces, dicing the peppers, and chopping the potatoes into 1/2-inch thick pieces.
Combine all of the ingredients (except for the corn) in a large bowl with the olive oil and all of the seasonings.
Cut 4 large pieces of foil and divide the ingredients between them. Add 2 pieces of corn to each.
Pull one end of the foil up over the ingredients to completely cover them, then roll and crimp the edges of the foil closed to make little packets.
Grill the packets for 12 minutes on one side, then flip and grill for another 12 minutes. Test the potatoes to be sure they’re soft by opening a little bit of one of the packets and poking the potatoes with a fork or knife.
Once the potatoes are fully cooked and soft, remove the packets from the grill and let them sit for 5-10 minutes. Open the packets carefully (watch for the steam!) and serve hot.
How to Serve the Garlic Kielbasa Grilled Foil Packets
You can just place the foil packets right on a plate to serve, or you might prefer to dish up the contents of the packets onto plates and throw out the foil. Either way works fine!
We loved sour cream served with the Garlic Kielbasa Grilled Foil Packets for dipping.
How to Store the Leftovers
It’s not best to store the leftovers in the foil packets. Instead, transfer the food to airtight containers. The extra packets we did not serve were poured into a large bowl with a lid (see image below). Keep in the refrigerator for up to two days.
How to Reheat
Here are two ways to reheat the leftovers:
- Microwave – heat individual servings in the microwave on microwave safe plates (no foil) in 30 second increments until warm.
- Skillet – pour the food into a skillet over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until warm.
