Sausage and Pepper Foil Packets

A super hands-off meal that is packed with flavor sausage and pepper foil packets will be your go-to for camping trips and weeknight dinners. You can cut the peppers and onions ahead of time, so all you need to do is heat up the grill or start the campfire, and assemble your meal. Relax and enjoy the outdoors while dinner does the cooking for you.

For the best flavor and appearance, grill the smoked sausage for a few minutes before adding them to the packets to get nice char marks. To make sure the packets don’t rip or tear while cooking, always use heavy-duty aluminum foil. And don’t forget to carefully flip the packets halfway through cooking, so the peppers cook evenly.

You can play around with the color and spice levels of the peppers you use. If you like things mild, stick with bell peppers. If you want to add a bit of heat, try Anaheim or poblano peppers. You can use yellow or red onion in this recipe.
