This simple yet delicious foil wrapped sausage and potato dinner is full of flavorful, savory elements and perfect for a hearty family dinner any time.
Start by slicing up the sausage and onion. I like to buy a bag of small fingerling potatoes for this, but depending on what potatoes you like, you may need to chop those a bit as well. We’re going for bite sized pieces here.
Shuck and rinse the corn and cut each cob in half.
Peel the garlic but leave the cloves whole.
Now I like to put everything into a big ass container. My husband swears its the best when all the ingredients have had time to mingle. I like this method because all the prep work is done when you decide you’re ready to eat! Generously sprinkle the filling with cajun seasoning. I use Tony’s, you can use whatever floats your boat.
When stomachs start growling, fire up the grill! Or light the campfire!
Rip several sheets of aluminum foil. I like to buy the heavy duty shit for this, we don’t want the foil tearing and spilling any of your deliciousness! Spoon a serving of filling onto the foil. Place a corn on each side of the filling. Place two slices of butter on top (you can also use Olive Oil here if butter ain’t yo thing). Cover with another sheet of foil and fold up the sides, encasing this masterpiece inside a cute little pouch.
Go ahead and place each pouch on the grill. Or in the campfire! Flip them over every 3-4 minutes, just be careful! We don’t want steaming butter burning those hands and ruining a perfectly good hand modeling career! Mmmmm, don’t they smell great? After about 20 minutes carefully unfold the side of one of the pouches. Give a potato a gentle poke with a fork, or knife, or stick. They should be nice and tender. Place each pouch on a plate, unwrap, and dig in! Pairs well with an ice cold beer. Bonus points if you remembered the smores stuff for dessert! I’ve included a condensed recipe below (screen shot/grocery store friendly!).
