Kielbasa with Summer Vegetable Packets

By September 6, 2016

Perfect for a late-summer cookout or out camping! Well, you don't have to make it over a campfire (grill and oven directions included) but these foil packets are stuffed with fresh veggies, sliced kielbasa and some herbs for a quick summer dinner. Best of all-- clean up is a cinch! Just make sure to use high-quality foil so your dinner steams up in the packet.

 1 package kielbasa (4 links)
 1-2 zucchini, summer squash or a combination
 3 peppers - bell, sweet, poblano or a mix (cut poblano peppers into very small pieces if using)
 1-2 ears sweet corn
 1 small onion
 4 tbsp oil- grapeseed, sunflower, olive
 1.5 - 2 tsp each dried oregano, rosemary, parsley, smoked paprika and salt
 High quality aluminum foil
1

Turn your oven to 400 or your grill to medium high.

2

Slice kielbasa into thick coins, and chop vegetables into 1" pieces. Slice the corn cobs into coins or chunks of kernels. The onion into wedges. Add everything to a big bowl, pour over the oil and the spices and toss well.

3

Place 3/4-1 cup of sausage and veggies to the center of a piece of foil, about 10 x 12 inches.

4

Wrap into a tightly sealed packet, and then fold that packet inside another packet so that they don't leak.

5

Bake the foil packets in the oven or in the grill (covered) for 20-25 minutes. Unwrap one packet and test the zucchini to see if they're done, Serve warm.

    This is so awesome!!! I didn’t have the corn but added peppers, onion and zucchini. I had a neighbor stop me to ask what I made the night before because it smelled so good!

  • Rene says:

    Really excellent. I added a whole, peeled garlic to each packet (I ended up with three), tomatoes, and potatoes! I omitted the peppers and corn. Otherwise, I followed the recipe and had great results. A real keeper.

    Really good! I’ve made it twice in a week — first for my in-laws (they wanted the recipe) and then a half recipe for just my husband and me. The flavor from the blend of herbs/spices is wonderful.
