Step 3 – Slice the sausage links into approximately ½ inch thick slices.  Toss together the sausage, potatoes, sweet bell peppers and onions and minced garlic into a large bowl. 

Combining the ingredients

Step 4 – Drizzle the olive oil on top and sprinkle the Italian seasoning mix on top.  Gently stir to coat all the sausage and vegetables with the olive oil and seasonings. 

Dividing the ingredients on the foil pack

Step 5 – Evenly divide the mixture into the center of each piece of foil and top each one with butter. Then fold up the edges of the foil around the food to create a closed packet.

Wrapping the ingredients in a foil

Step 6 – Place the foil packets on the grill over direct heat.  Grill for 15-20 minutes (flipping halfway through the cook time) until the potatoes are fork tender.  

  • Step 7 – Remove from heat.  Be careful when opening the foil packs.  Top with the grated Parmesan Cheese, salt and pepper and fresh chopped parsley.  Serve immediately while warm and enjoy!  

Recipe Tips

  • Sheet of Foil – Make sure to use heavy duty aluminum foil so that it doesn’t break when making this recipe. 
  • Cutting Veggies – Just make sure to dice them into smaller pieces so that the potatoes are done at the same time as the sliced peppers.
  • Folding foil – Wrap the foil around the veggies and sausage completely for best results. This helps to lock in the moisture to allow all the ingredients to cook evenly.
  • Opening Foil Packets – When you are finish cooking the foil packet meal, carefully open the packet. Steam will come out and it will be very hot.
