How To Make Sausage Foil Packets
You will be pleased to know that you don’t have to spend a lot of effort throwing together this sausage, potato, corn foil packet! But it ends up tasting like a million bucks! Take a look at how easy it is to make:
First Step: Begin by heating the grill and getting four pieces of aluminum foil ready.
Second Step: Place sliced sausage into a bowl.
Third Step: Next, Slice the potatoes, peppers in corn, so they are in easy to eat pieces. Add them to the sausage.
Fourth Step: Prepare the seasoning mixture by combining the oil, Italian seasoning, garlic, onion powder, salt, and pepper. Then give it a quick stir and pour it over the sausage and corn. Mix well, so seasoning is evenly distributed.
Fifth Step: Divide the mixture into 2 of the pieces of aluminum foil and fold like you would a gift. Then use the extra pieces of aluminum foil to wrap them a second time. This will keep juices and oil in the packet when grilling.
Sixth Step: Grill for approximately 10-12 minutes, then flip and cook for an additional 10-12 minutes. Then open one packet to see if potatoes are done. When they are, it’s ready.

When Should I Serve Sausage Foil Packets On Grill?
Grill foil packet recipes are so popular that you will find them at all kinds of events. There are no wrong answers, but here are some of my favorite places to serve them:
- Backyard Barbecue
- Dinner Party
- Outdoor Wedding
- Birthday Party
How To Freeze Foil Packets
You can freeze cooked or uncooked foil packets, so they are ideal for meal prepping. Sometimes I will double the recipe and only grill half, then freeze the other half. If you want to freeze them, wrap them tightly in the aluminum foil, then place them in a large freezer bag. When you are ready to grill them, take them out of the freezer to defrost and grill them like you usually would. If you want to reheat leftovers that have been frozen, you are better off to bake them in the oven at 300 degrees F. for 20-30 minutes until they are warmed up.
Can I Make Foil Packets In The Oven?
Yes, you can make sausage foil packets in the oven. Simply preheat the oven to 350 degrees and heat them for 35-45 minutes. They will still have lots of flavors and are perfect for those cold days when you don’t want to be grilling outside.

A super easy sausage foil packs with corn done on the grill! Easy cooking, easy cleanup, and fantastic flavors that scream summer!!
- 1 garlic sausage ring (smallish size)
- 1-2 corn on the cob (small)
- 2 potatoes, medium sized, washed/scrubbed
- 1 sweet pepper, any color
- 3 tbsp olive oil
- 1 tsp Italian seasoning
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1/2 tsp onion powder
- salt and pepper as desired
- Preheat the grill to 350 or on medium heat
- Cut 4 pieces of foil, approximately 12" inches long
- Slice the garlic sausage in medallions and put them into a bowl.
- Slice the potatoes, corn, and peppers all into manageable bite sized pieces. Add to the sausage in the bowl.
- In a separate bowl, combine the oil, italian seasoning, garlic and onion powder, salt and pepper. Mix well and pour over the sausage. Mix everything together well.
- Take two pieces of foil and divide the contents evenly between the two. Fold the foil around the ingredients like a present.
- Take the other two pieces and fold each one around each packet for extra protection so the marinade doesn't leak out during grilling.
- Place on the grill and roast for approximately 10 - 12 minutes. Flip and roast again for the same amount of time.
- Gingerly open one of the packets and test a piece of potato for doneness. If a fork goes through it easily, the packets are done.
- Remove off the grill , open and enjoy!
The times suggested are approximates. All grills are different and will also depend on how close to the flame, windy days, etc. Please watch the packets closely so they don't burn.

Can this be made in the oven instead of the grill? What temp, how long?
Hi Sharon! Yes, you sure can. About halfway down the body of the post, I give directions on how to make these packs in the oven.
“Simply preheat the oven to 350 degrees and heat them for 35-45 minutes. They will still have lots of flavors and are perfect for those cold days when you don’t want to be grilling outside.” I hope that helps!
Awesome recipe!! I used red potatoes and threw on some snap beans. Unbelievably simple and quick.
Awesome! Thank you for commenting Terry!

Will the corn slice well with a knife? Nothing fancy needed?
Hi Brenda! Yes, corn slices fine with a knife, but it must be sharp, so be careful. A little pressure to begin with and it should go right through. Enjoy the recipe! 🙂
I cannot tell you how easy & delicious this is! Baked in baking dish sprayed with cooking oil & used the olive oil with 2 tsp. “Slap yo’ Mama” Cajun seasoning.(Would recommend 1tsp.if kids are eating).Did need to increase baking time to 75 min. Will definitely make again! Thanks! Covered pan with foil during baking.
Can this be made in the instant pot? If so, how long would you cook it?
Hi Candice. I suppose you could. I’ve never done it, so I can’t tell you exactly how much time you’d need. I’d have to test it out a few times to be confident with giving you cooking times.
Tried it tonight and I was very disappointed. No way the potatoes would be cooked in such a short time. I had to finish them of in the microwave,
Hi Diane! I’ve never had a problem with the potatoes cooking in time. If they are cut into bite-size pieces, cooked on one side for 10 – 12 minutes, then flip and cook them for another 10 – 12 minutes, (20 – 22 minutes total) it’s more than enough time to cook that size of potato. I’ve never had anyone say that the potato didn’t cook in time. I’m sorry to hear this didn’t work out for you.
Can this be cooked on wood fire at camp ground ? If so how long and how far from fire ? Thank you
Hi Rhonda. Honestly, I haven’t tried this specific recipe over a campfire yet, but I’m eager to give it a try. As for cooking time, it’s REALLY difficult for me to say because it all depends on how big the fire is, some wood burns hotter than other wood, etc. I would most definitely wrap it foil at least twice, with the foil closing on each layer, on different sides so you can flip it without having juices run out. I wish I could help you out more than that, but I’d love it if you could let me know how it worked out for you! I’d definitely add your information into the post and give you credit!

This looks great w/ shrimp. Gonna try it. Thanks
Could this also be done in the oven? And r temps the same? Im not so grill friendly! Lol
Hey Robin! Actually, yes, I wrote it in the post that you can certainly do it in the oven if you can’t use your grill! Simply preheat the oven to 350 degrees and heat them for 35-45 minutes. I hope that helps!!
Can I make this up ahead of time and just store all ingredients in a gallon ziploc until I’m ready to make up the foil packs? Am trying to prep meals for camping.
Hi Kim, thanks for asking your question! Yes you sure can! I think prepping all the ingredients and keeping them separate, and then combining them in the foil right when you’re about to cook them is a perfect idea. Happy camping!!
I have some corn in the fridge. I might have to try this one for the guys in my house. Thanks!
Awesome to hear Jenne! Thanks for commenting!
