These Garlic Herb Sausage and Veggie Foil Packs have got your busy weeknights covered! While I’ve got foil packs on my mind I decided to try out another foil pack recipe. This time instead of doing shrimp like my last two foil packs (Garlic Lemon Butter Shrimp and Asparagus Foil Packs and Cilantro Lime Shrimp and Cauliflower Rice Foil Packs) I decided to go a turkey sausage route because we loved smoked turkey sausage. And then of course I threw in some colorful veggies and added in some of my favorite flavors. I love the way they turned out, they’re oh so perfectly delicious and so easy to make!
You could grill these as well, I haven’t tested yet but I’d go with a medium to medium-high heat and probably about 20 minutes. When making these, just be sure to seal your packs well when wrapping edges together and rolling the ends up, otherwise the liquids that should remain in the packet and will evaporate and things could burn. Also don’t wrap the packets too tightly, you want some extra space in there for heat to circulate so things cook evenly.
I love that these are packed with tons of veggies. We are talking generous servings of veggies. You get red potatoes, green/yellow beans and carrots (oh and onions too if we really want to count). What’s not to love? Try these out this week! They could likely become a new summer family favorite!
Garlic Herb Sausage and Veggie Foil Packs
- 16 oz. baby red potatoes
- 12 oz. fully cooked smoked turkey sausage, cut into slices about 1/4-inch thick
- 12 oz. green beans or yellow beans, ends trimmed (I used a blend of both)
- 8 oz. baby carrots, thicker ones halved through the length
- 1 small yellow onion, halved and sliced
- 4 tsp minced garlic (4 cloves)
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 1 Tbsp Italian seasoning
- Salt and freshly ground black pepper
- 2 Tbsp chopped fresh parsley
- Grated parmesan, for serving (optional)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place red potatoes on a large plate and microwave for 3 minutes, turning once halfway through. Once cool enough to handle cut into quarters. Add potatoes, sausage, beans, carrots, onions and garlic to a large mixing bowl. Add in olive oil, Italian seasoning and season with a fair amount of salt and pepper to taste.
Cut 4 pieces of 16 by 12-inch heavy duty aluminum foil. Lay each piece separately on a flat surface. Divide sausage mixture evenly among sheets of foil, creating a somewhat rectangular shape with the mixture. Wrap sides of foil in then fold 2 times to seal while leaving room for heat to circulate, then wrap ends up folding twice to seal.
Lay foil packs side by side on a 18 by 13-inch baking sheet. Bake in preheated oven until veggies are tender, about 35 - 40 minutes. Carefully open packets (they'll steam!). Sprinkle with parmesan and parsley. Serve warm.
