Substitutions and Additions

  • Potatoes – We used hashbrowns in this recipe, but feel free to use little potatoes.
  • Sausage – We love how the sausage links cook, but you can change the meat to another option. You can add in chicken, dice ham, chopped bacon, or beef to the foil pouch.
  • Vegetables – Feel free to use different types of vegetables other than onions and peppers. We like to use what leftovers vegetables we have from the week. Spinach, Chopped asparagus, roasted corn, or shredded carrots.
  • Cheese – You can make this delicious breakfast recipe with different types of cheese.
  • Egg – You can cook different types of eggs in this recipe. You can scramble the egg and place in the foil. You can also crack the egg in the foil to make a sunny side up egg.

How to Make Breakfast Foil Packs 

  • Step 1 – Heat Grill – Preheat the grill over medium high heat (approximately 400 degrees Fahrenheit).
  • Step 2 – Prepare Foil Sheets – Cut 4 large pieces of heavy duty foil into approximately 12X12 inches. Then spray the foil into non-stick cooking spray.

Step 4 – Add Sausage Links – Place 2 sausage links on top of each foil packet. Season each of the ingredients in the packets with seasoned salt and pepper.  

  • Step 5 – Foil Foil Packs – Then fold up the edges of the foil around the food to create a closed packet.
  • Step 6 – Grill Packets – Place the foil packets on the grill over direct heat.  Grill for 15-18 minutes (flipping halfway through the cook time) until the veggies are tender.
  • Step 7 – Add Egg – Once the veggies are tender, carefully open up the foil packets (still on the grill). Then crack an egg into the center of each.  Loosely cover the foil over the egg and close the lid on the grill. 
  • Step 8 – Cook – Cook for 3-5 more minutes until the eggs are cooked through. 
  • Step 9 – Remove From Grill – Remove from the grill.  Open each foil pack and top each one with a small amount of shredded cheese.  Loosely close the foil packets again to allow the heat from the meal to melt the cheese.  
  • Step 10 – Melt Cheese – Once the cheese is melted, the foil packets are ready to serve and enjoy.

Recipe Tips

  • Prepare Foil – These campfire breakfast foil packets are best sprayed with cooking spray before adding in ingredients.
  • Filling Foil Packet Meals – We dividing the ingredients make sure to not overfill. This could cause the packets to burst while cooking. We recommend evenly filling the packets.
  • Seal Packets – Make sure to seal the packets completely. This helps to ensure that when you are flipping the packets that the food doesn’t fall out.
  • Adding Egg – Carefully open packs with tongs to add in the egg towards the end of cooking time.
  • Serving – Serve the foil packs warm top with your favorite cheese, salsa and seasoning.
